|Smith published this in conjunction with "If You're Going to Join the Army, Play the Game!" on the same day and with very similar covers. Both songs are well made, but there is no indication that either attained any degree of public recognition.
|This ballad in quadruple meter contains rhythms that suggest a march song. The beginning of the refrain quotes the penultimate melodic line of "Home Sweet Home" ("There's no place like home").
