"Home Of The Brave"

album _Legendary Hearts_
(Lou Reed, 1983)

written by Lou Reed
========================


        Here's to Johnny with his Jo
        and Mickey's got a wife
        And here's to Jerry
        he has got his Joyce

        And me, I'm shaking
        in my boots tonight
        For the daughters and the sons
        lost in the home of the brave

        And here's to the home of the brave
        And here's to the life that's not saved
        Here's to the home of the brave
        Here's to the home of the brave

        Here's to Frank hit in some bar
        in picturesque Brooklyn Heights
        And here's to a friend who jumped in front of a train
        at seven o'clock one night

        And another friend who thinks he lacks worth
        has disappeared from sight
        Somewhere in the home
        of the brave

        And here's to the home of the brave
        And here's to the life that's not saved
        Here's to the home of the brave
        Here's to the home of the brave

        The stars are hiding in their clouds
        the street lights are too bright
        A man's kicking a woman
        who's clutching his leg tight

        And I think suddenly of you
        and blink my eyes in fright
        And rush off to the home
        of the brave

        And here's to the home of the brave
        Here's to the home of the brave
        And here's to the life that is saved
        Here's to the home of the brave

        And everyday you have to die some
        cry some and die some
        And everyday you have to die some
        cry some and die

        In the home of the brave
        Home of the brave
