Come Home, Father

Dry and Mighty Dept.: Back when the play "Ten Nights in a Bar-Room" was a music-hall staple, Henry Clay Work's 1864 song "Come Home, Father" found a place in it -- and reportedly led many in the audience to sign a temperance pledge in the lobby. Such has never been the case when Tom Savoy, Malcolm Kogut, and I perform this number. In fact, I fear it's had the opposite effect.
