Homeward Bound

      G*                                                 Gmaj7*                          G7*      E*
I'm sitting in the railway station, got a ticket for my destination,     mmmm
Am                                                 F
On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand.
        G                                                   D                                    G
And every stop is neatly planned for a poet and one-man band.


                  C                      G                      C
Homeward bound, I wish I was homeward bound,
G                        Gsus4      G Gsus2 G                               Gsus4 G     Gsus2 G
Home where my thought's escap…..ing, home where my mu.....sic's play....ing,
G                       Gsus4 G    Gsus2 G     D         G*
Home where my love    lies wait...ing, silently for me.

                                                   Gmaj7*                            G7*       E*
Every day's an endless stream of cigarettes and magazines,      mmmm
       Am                                                       F
And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories
       G                                         D                                         G
And every stranger's face I see reminds me that I long to be




                                                         Gmaj7*                               G7*       E
Tonight I'll sing my songs again, I'll play the game and pretend,       mmmm
      Am                                                F
But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity
       G                                     D                                           G
Like emptiness in harmony I need someone to comfort me.


Chorus                 Gmaj7*             G7*         Outro (same as intro but finish on G)
                                         Silently for me.
