I stood on faith, and the corner of ambition
I came here to sink or swim, and to show them all
That they were wrong,  and though I never thought I'd make it this far
So the curtains are down.  For the moment I was someone
There were those in the wings who waited
who came this way.  Now they're gone.
But there's always someone at home who never forgets who you are.
And when I'm down and I'm growin' old, it won't be long or I won't try
I won't be bound to a life out in the cold
It's been a steady pace, to keep my steps between these cracks on Broadway
And my stride in rhythm to the beat of home sweet home.

(Instrumental)

And when I'm down and I'm growin' old, I won't be long or I won't try
I won't be bound to a life out in the cold
It's been a steady pace, to keep my steps between these cracks on Broadway
And my stride in rhythm to the beat of home sweet (Can't go on, I'm on the top
of my better years.  I'm going home.  It's too lonesome on the bottom rung here)
It's been a steady pace, to keep my steps between these cracks on Broadway
And my stride in rhythm to the beat of home sweet home.
