"Bring him Home" is a soliloquy sung by the main character, Jean Valjean in
the hit Broadway musical "Les Miserables". It is by far my favourite musical
and the piece has a truly beautiful melody that is a pleasure to play. This
is my first ever Guitar Tab so I hope that people can make use of it and
enjoy playing this piece as much as I did ~ Miles Fletcher.

The last two bars are played at a gradually decreasing tempo and the last
five notes (which I have enclosed in square brackets) are gently strummed
with the thumb.


EDIT: I've added the words here, since they were too long to fit alongside the tab.

God on high
Hear my prayer
In my need
You have always been there
He is young
He's afraid
Let him rest
Heaven blessed
Bring him home
Bring him home
Bring him home

He's like the son I might have known
If God had granted me a son
The summers die one by one
How soon they fly
On and on
And I am old and will be gone

Bring him peace
Bring him joy
He is young
He is only a boy
You can take
You can give
Let him be
Let him live
If I die
Let me die
Let him live
Bring him home
Bring him home
Bring him home
