Take me back to a south Tallahassee Down cross the bridge to my sweet sassafrassy Can't stand up on my feet in the city Got to get back to the real nitty-gritty
Yes sir, no sir Don't come close to my Home sweet home Can't catch no dose Of my hot tail poon-tang sweatheart Sweathog ready to make a silk purse From a J Paul Getty and his ear With a face in a beer Home sweet home
Get out in the field, Put the mule in the stable Ma, she's a cookin' Put the eats on the table Hate's in the city and my love's in the meadow Hand's on the plow and my feet's in the ghetto
Stand up, sit down Don't do nothin' Ain't no good when bossman's stuffin' it Down their throats with paper notes And their babies cry while Cindys lie at my feet When you're rockin' the street Home sweet home
Mamma take me home sweet home I was the last child, just a punk in the street I was the last child, just a punk in the street I was the last child, just a punk in the street I was the last child, just a punk in the street I was the last child, just a punk in the street

Rhonda Branch from Grandridge FlI grew up around Tallahassee so me and my friends loved the mention of it in the song.
Bob from Jackson, MichiganWas kind of singing that last part of the tune to myself when my bud asked, what does he say?. I said.......I was the last child, just a punk in the street. He said, I didn't know it was 'punk in the street'. Oh man, what a great song!
Mark from Raleigh, NcActually the "Last Child" solo is played by Brad on the album. You can tell its him. Its well known that Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter played on some of their earlier stuff like "Train Kept a Rollin", but Whitford is the guy on "Last Child".
Rockheadz from Scarsdale, NyExcusez-moi. Not to take away from Brad's playing but let me assure you. He did not, I repeat, did not play the solo on the original album. That's a studio cat. But it's good, isn't it?
Randy C. from Yonkers, NyLove the solo in this one. Does anyone care to know who the hire gun was that wrote the lick? Can you say hush money?
Chris from Missoula, MtThis song has a killer groove, not unlike the groove to Bowie's FAME. Check it out. Fame came out in '75 so maybe subconsciously the Aerosmith lads borrowed the riff...or maybe not. That riff has been around for years. GReat song, none-the-less.
Homer from Springfield, KyThis is a great song. I really should put it on my iPod. It's mostly known to me and my dad as the song that rhymes talahasse and sassafrasse.
Alan from Rock!!!!!!!!!!!, Txtis song is beast but needs a real music video
Olala from Eskilstuna, SwedenThe guitars are cool in this one but the snare drums that are stereo paned are really cool too. Check it out!
Joe from Chicago, IlWhat do you mean, not a hit. This chart position was better than some great ones - Piano Man, Close The Door, and Aerosmith's own Sweet Emotion.
Scott from Boston, MaJoe Perry and Brad Whitford are great, but they're definitely not the best duo ever. Duane Allman and Dickey Betts are miles ahed of any other duo. I'd also put each Rolling Stones duo ahead of them (Brian Jones/Keith Richards, Mick Taylor/Richards and Ron Wood/Richards) and any Eagles duo/trio ahead of them especially the Joe Walsh, Don Felder, Glenn Frey combo.
Tj from South Jersey, NjBrad and Joe were like Oxygen and Hydrogen. When separated they had unique elemental qualities but were invisible. Together, they became something greater than the sum of the parts. This is prbably THE greatest guitar duo of all time.
Greg from New York, Nythis song i cool, especialy the solo
Nick from Paramus, NjI like the dual-guitar soloing in the song "Heart's Done Time"
Robert Lewe from Elkin, NcEver since I first saw Aerosmith (1975, I was 10), I have noticed that there has been a conscious effort (even by the band themselves) to foster the notion that Joe is THE lead guitarist. The bottom line - They are both great, and Brad's more traditional, precise playing meshes great with Joe's wilder, more spontaneous and quirky playing. Cheers,
Robert Lewe from Elkin, NcActually, even though it is"commonly" believed that Joe Perry is the Lead guitar player and Brad Whitford the Rhythm guitar player, if you analyze their songs and/or have ever seen them live, you would come to realize that Aerosmith really has TWO Lead guitar players. Quite a few Aerosmith solos (including many very well-known ones - Dream On, Nobody's Fault, Last Child, etc) have been played by Brad Whitford.
Robert Lewe from Elkin, NcActually, to be precise, Brad plays part of the solos in Dream On
Frank from Morenci , AzAlways liked Last Child...i was a teenager when I got the "Rocks" album. I recently told some young guy Rocks and toys in the Attic are my favorite Aerosmith Albums.
He alerted me those were early releases..man i'm old
Ben from Nyc, Msyeah, but whitford plays lead on this song
Chris from Copenhagen, DenmarkBrad Whitford is the rhythm gutarist of Aerosmith, not lead. Lead guitar is Joe Perry. Both are great players by the way.
