Cap Came Home
©2008 Ken Bewick
Cap came home after being gone in an old coat that he’d found
A chilly wind had shut the city down and we had nowhere left to stand
Well it’s quaint here,
I recognize it from the photographs
Say so long ‘cause he’ll be gone before the sweat has dried from our palms

Cap came home after being gone
Cap got out and shook my hand
Brought a chest the size of Buffalo
I thought that New York must be grand
Well it’s quiet now, leaves are blowin’ through the parking lot
Say so long ‘cause he’ll be gone before the sweat has dried from our palms

People like strangeness, and strangers love a train
All of this madness begets another day
But all of the people go away again
It’s always the desert in the end, my friend

Cap came home after being gone with flecks of palm tree in his beard
With purple epaulets and shoulder boards
And all the younger kids look scared
Well it’s great here, I only wish there was something happening
Say so long, ‘cause he’ll be gone before the sweat has dried from our palms.
