Home Sweet Home

Album: Tears, Lies, and Alibis (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Lynne explained the song to The Boot: "I've gone the road and I love the road, but it is really hard. I'm one of those people who have a hard time getting out of the house even though I'm an old road dog, and I do love to get out there and sing. I have to leave my dogs and my garden. I've just turned into such a homebody. You do what you have to do, and I love traveling and being on tour out there with the guys and playing. It's hard for me. I'll sit here going, 'Oh my god, I've got five more days at home before I leave for 40 days.' I'm freaking out."
