Lyrics for Last Child by Aerosmith:

I'm dreaming tonight, I'm living back home
Yeah yeah

Verse 1
Take me back to a south Tallahassee
Down cross the bridge to my sweet sassafrassy
Can't stand up on my feet in the city
Got to get back to the real nitty gritty

Verse 2
Yes sir, no sir
Don't come close to my
Home sweet home
Can't catch no dose
Of my hot tail poon tang sweetheart
Sweathog ready to make a silk purse
From a J Paul Getty and his ear
With her face in her beer

Home sweet home

Verse 3
Get out in the field
Put the mule in the stable
Ma she's a cooking
Put the eats on the table
Hate's in the city
And my love's in the meadow
Hands on the plow
And my feets in the ghetto

Verse 4
Stand up, sit down
Don't do nothing
It isn't no good when boss man's
Stuffing it down their throats
For paper notes
And their babies cry
While cities lie at their feet
When you're rocking the street

Home sweet home
Mama, take me home sweet home

I was the last child
I'm just a punk in the street
I was the last child
I'm just a punk in the street

Song Facts

“Last Child” is one of few Aerosmith tracks to be written in part by rhythm guitarist Brad Whitford. There is some debate over who actually played the guitar solo on the record (most believe it to be Joe Perry), but Brad Whitford always plays it during live performances.

When discussing his love for Rocks, which he cites as the album that made him want to learn to play guitar, Slash talks in particular about the great one-two punch of the first two songs on the album: “Back in the Saddle” and “Last Child.”
