Home Sweet Home
 MID PLEASURES AND PALACES, THOUGH WE MAY ROAM,
BE IT EVERY SO HUMBLE, THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME.

A CHARM FROM THE SKY SEEMS TO HALLOW US THERE,
WHICH SEEK THROUGH THE WORLD, IS NE'ER MET WITH ELSEWHERE.

Comments:
This design is numbered 102 on the Grant catalogue and price list.

In this postcard, the words and music of the verse are together, with the words and music of the chorus below. This is the more typical design of this postcard.
It will be seen that the music of the chorus is slightly different. In the 4th bar, the first note was a " G " in the earliest version of the card; being corrected to an " A " in all later versions.
Grant also made a variant where the words of the verse and chorus are together, and all the music is below, and this version is recorded as [gc818 on this site].
