C                                                      C
Let me tell you all a little story of the things I've found,
C                                                            C
Hanging out and drinking with my friends in the cathedral grounds,
C                                                  C
And later dodging drunks as we dance along Jewry Street,
C                                                  C        
As we wander up town to the railway our friends to meet,

        C                               Am7
There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
     C                                                  
The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
           C                                 Am7
And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
      C                                 C
I'm a Wessex Boy and when I'm here I'm home

C                                                       C
Let me tell you all a little story of the things I've lost,
C                                                  C
Huddling for warmth on the top step of the Buttercross,
  C                                                  C
Sitting on the benches by the bridges at the riverside,
C                                                            C
Of counting down the hours for the buses cause I missed my ride

        C                               Am7
There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
     C                                                  
The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
           C                                  Am7
And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
      C                                               Em 
I'm a Wessex Boy, a Wessex boy and when I'm here I'm home

                    C              Am7          C
And one day I will hear this song anonymous and sweet,
        Em           C                   Am7           C     
Ringing out from a buskers guitar on the ancient city streets,
      Em                C              Am7         C               
I'll pause a while and smile before I continue on alone,
     Am7                                   C
And somebody else will sing the words and I'll feel like I'm home



the 0's here are played fast and quietly (you could probably go without them)

         C                           Am7
There's something about hometowns you never can escape 
     C                                                  
The triumphs and the tragedies, the tawdry little fates 
      C                       Am7
The welling of nostalgia, the feeling kinda strange
       C                                    
Cause despite all the little changes, this place still feels the same 

         C                             Am7
There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
     C                                                  
The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
           C                                 Am7
And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
      C                                               C
I'm a Wessex Boy, a Wessex boy and when I'm here I'm home
