Joe Hurley & Rogue's March - On My Way Home

from by Joe Hurley and Rogue's March



"A wildly diverse act that manages to sew threads of punk, country and cabaret into an astonishingly cohesive sound... showcasing a star-powered front man in Joe Hurley".


"Joe Hurley is the best singer of vowels in rock since Shane MacGowan and he's got fire behind those puppy eyes"


"Unshakeable pop hooks"


"Hurley's voice is pure gold . . . Whether it's the Kurt Weill-influenced "Bedsheets of Lili Marlene," the boozy, countrified "The Ghost of Her Husband to Be," or the grubby punk of "On My Way Home," the colorful characters that spring from Hurley's head are what give Rogue's March songs their sparkle."



'On My Way Home' Lyrics/Music by Joe Hurley

On my way home, I think I saw you
Actually, I'm pretty sure, cause you even said hello
In that special voice you reserve for someone
you dont know any more

On my way home, I saw an old lady
lugging her laundry over her shoulder
By her side was a child, skippin' and smilin'
You know she'd never scold her

On My Way Home, On My Way Home

On my way home, I saw a barfight
How you insulted his girl with a neckbite
Now you lost your teeth in a redlight district,
Baby you picked it

On my way home, I spied a dilettante
spouting shitty poetry to a debutante
whose mother took a lover at a famous restaurant
Baby what you want

On My Way Home, On My Way Home

On my way home, I heard a young punk
Spewing the glories of street junk,
But a Burroughs paperback is the closest he'll get to that
Baby you're so slack

On my way home, I ran into an old friend
begging for change and a fag-end
Well, here's a buck for your cup,
You'll get your luck back, you'll be alright Jack

On My Way Home, On my way..

On my way home, I felt a kick
From the mean streets where I live
From the psychos to the whores
Never know just what's in store
Never shall receive

On my way home, I was thinking 'bout closure
How no one ever tells me when it's over
How I have to guess that I'm a mess
And that's why they leave me so quickly

On my way home, I heard a siren,
A baby cryin', a dealer dying,
I found salvation in a stranger's face
And that's a starnge place

On My Way Home, On My Way Home..

I'm on my way home
And I hope you'll be there waiting
Waiting for me with a smile.."
