Capo 1st fret A I'm sitting in the railway station. Amaj7 A7 F# Got a ticket for my destination, mmmm Bm G On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand. A E7 A And ev'ry stop is neatly planned for a poet and one-man band. Chorus: D A Homeward bound, wish I was, D Homeward bound, A Asus4 Home where my thought's escaping A Asus4 Home where my music's playing, A Asus4 Home where my love lays waiting E A Silently for me. A Ev'ry day's an endless stream Amaj7 A7 F# Of cigarettes and magazines, mmmm Bm G And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories A E7 A And ev'ry stranger's face I see reminds me that I long to be, Repeate chorus A Tonight I'll sing my songs again, Amaj7 A7 F# I'll play the game and pretend, mmmm Bm G But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity A E7 A Like emptiness in harmony I need someone to comfort me. Repeate chorus Amaj7 A7 A Silently for me.
