The Lyrics

Last night I went to sleep in Crawford City
And dreamed about the barren rocks back home
I dreamed about my father, and my 3 years in the White House
I dreamed about my childhood, that I spent back on Mars

I wanna go home I wanna go home oh how I wanna go home

Homefolks think I'm big in Washington, DC
From the articles they read they think I'm fine
But by day I make a mess, and by night I face the press
If they could only read between the lines

Cause you know, I rode Air Force One north from Crawford City
And after three long years I find that I've just been wastin' my time
So I just think I'll have NASA build a shuttle,
and get on a flight to Mars and ride
And go on back to the red planet I left so far behind

I wanna go home I wanna go home oh how I wanna go home
2004 Michael W. McVey

You know, Mike, before I was elected to Congress, I worked on the Viking landers that reached Mars first.
