Hook
They say there’s something goin on back home
But I know my people are going strong back home
that’s why I wrote this song back home
This is strictly for all of my doggs back home

Verse1:
Sometimes I wish I was back home, so I could smoke a blunt and get back on
The streets where it all started
I still hear my doggs barking when I start walkin
On the block where I lived; hear the walls talkin
So many memories and every corner filled with this energy
Its been so long I wonder if you’d even remember me
Cuz things changed; I’m changed and I’m sure you’ve changed too
Hopefully for the better
Cuz too many never get to make it to see a better day
Forced another course to court like a weathervane
I’m tryna tell you mang; I know you could be stressing
So I wrote this in a session and I hope you get the message
I passed by where his body was found
Lit a black and mild and stare where he lie on the ground
I guess it was your time to be out
All I could do is smile for you now; rest in peace nigga

Hook

Verse2:
I used to live in Louisiana pre-Katrina
I moved a year before it happened but you shoulda seen her
The day I went back; never knew the impact
To keep your jaw from droppin gotta wear a chin strap
Its hard to see so many places lost to the devastation
Some would say its revelation that their facing
I cant explain the way it felt; pulse steady racing
Let em know their family wasn’t coming home; you’d better brace em
Piles of rubble from what looked to be hopes and wishes
Like baby pictures, diminished, cracking away like broken dishes
Some people huggin; others crying cuz their folks are missing
Some people left while others were just left with no decision
So this is something for you to listen to over and over again
When you put the dro in the wind
I hope you get to watch your boys grow into men
Cuz back home you never know when it ends; and that’s reality
