about

Three days after the Great 2011 Halloween Blackout, Ken Maiuri and Henning Ohlenbusch recorded themselves playing this song. The banjo, acoustic guitar and lead vocal were all recorded live. The rest was added later.

lyrics

Nothing here has changed
Nothing's been forgotten
The snow still falls like cotton
On the house up on the hill
Just like it always will.

Nothing here has changed
It's just as you remembered
Like every past December
The mulit-colored glow
Of lights beneath the snow.

Standing there
In the cold, quiet air
Take a moment just to stop and breathe
Coming home along on Christmas Eve

Open up the door
The smell of good home cooking
And all the kids are looking
At the presents unde the tree
Wondering what they might be

When dinner's done
Gather everyone
And sing these songs that you might not believe
Coming home along on Christmas Eve
Coming home along on Christmas Eve

When there's no more fire
And the kids are tired
You gather up the gifts that you received
Coming home along on Christmas Eve

On the cold car seat
In the slow car heat
Always wave goodbye when you turn to leave
Coming home along on Christmas Eve
Coming home along on Christmas Eve
Coming home along on Christmas Eve
