About Home is the Place
Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim wrote the brilliant musical Gypsy, which opened in 1959. After that collaboration, Jule Styne expressed an interest in their continuing to work together, resulting in “Home is the Place” and “Come Over Here.”


Good luck to the boys
With rainbows to chase
In my time I’ve chased a few

Good luck to the runners
May they all win the race
But home is the place with you

Goodbye to the girls
I’ll never embrace
The dreams that won’t pursue

But here’s to the dreamers
Who can keep up the pace
I give them my space
I’m through and
Home is the place with you
