Badfinger were a British rock band consisting originally of Pete Ham, Ron Griffiths, Mike Gibbins and Tom Evans; active from 1968 to 1983, and evolving from The Iveys; formed by Ham, Griffiths and David "Dai" Jenkins in Swansea, Wales, in the early 1960s. Joey Molland joined the group in 1969, following the departure of Griffiths. Signed by The Beatles' Apple label in 1968 as The Iveys, they adopted the name Badfinger in 1969. Badfinger had four consecutive worldwide hits in 1970 and 1971: "Come and Get It" (written and produced by Paul McCartney), "No Matter What", "Day After Day", and "Baby Blue". The Ham/Evans-penned Badfinger song, "Without You", became a Billboard number one hit for Harry Nilsson. more »

Your heart is in your home they say
Your home's where you belong
But someone stole my heart today
So listen to my song

I heard the news today
They're going to move us far away
Seems that our home must go
They're going to build a motorway

It isn't fair, nobody cares
They're knocking down our home
Ruining all we own
They're knocking down our home
Please help us
Don't let them take our home

Ma's cooking at the stove
Where she's cooked for thirty years
Ten thousand meals she's cooked
But now her eyes are filled with tears

It isn't fair, nobody cares
They're knocking down our home
Ruining all we own
