A song about an aging one-man-band out on the road, pretending to be tough, who soon learns he is not a tough as he thinks.
I was writing this when I learned of a co-workers passing from cancer. I was told of his trip to Pasadena to see his Penn State play in the Rose Bowl and how much joy that brought him. He passed just two days later. That inspired the final verse and influenced the ending so home became less of a physical place but more of a spiritual place.
