Intro  F#  B  F#  B

Verse 1

F#              C#     
He was born far away from home
     D#m                  B
In a troubled place, in a distant land.
       C#                       Bbm
He was guided by a reason as he searched for the truth
G#m                    Bbm          B
Questioning life as he tried to understand
     C#          E   F#
Just who he was.

Verse 2

             C#
Discipled by philosophy.
  D#m                  B
A dead end street with no way through
C#                        Bbm
Trusting education as the key to his soul
        G#m                 Bbm     B
But the room that it opened held no clue
   C#           E  
To who he was.


Chorus 1

        D#m               B
And the Wayward Son kept looking.
      C#               F#
For a path to lead him home.
  D#m         B          C#
A new age revelation, to give him hope.
        D#m              B
And the Wayward Son kept learning.
        C#           F#
But the wisdom never came.
       E
And he searched for years to find out
D#m    F#    D#m  E  F#  C#  F#
Who he was.

Verse 3

                C#
At forty he was born again.
     D#m                  B
In a peaceful place, in a familiar land.
C#                       Bbm
Sheltered by a grace God revealed His truth.
    G#m           Bbm           B
And day by day he grew to comprehend
         C#       E   F#
Just who he was.
                   C#
Refashioned by the hand of love
       D#m             B
In the image of, God's only son.
       C#                           Bbm
He was freed from the fall with the curse in 

the dust
   G#m                 Bbm
In Christ he found the essence
B           C#       E   
Of just who he was.


Chorus 2

        D#m                 B
And the Wayward Son stopped looking.
      C#               F#
For a path to lead him home.
   D#m             B           C#
He received a revelation, that gave him hope.
        D#m                 B
And the Wayward Son stopped yearning.
        C#            F#
For the wisdom of the wind.
    E
And he began to find out
B           F#  D#m   E   F#
Who he was.           Ohh who he was.

riff  D#m  A  D  F#  D  A  D  A  C#  E 

Verse 4
 
     D#m             B
As a newborn son I'm walking.
       C#                 F#
On the path that leads me home.
             D#m           B      C#
You know the spirit's revelation, gives me hope.
     D#m             B
As a newborn son I'm growing.
       C#              F#
In the wisdom of God's plan.
       E              B
I must lose myself to find out,
      F#
Who I am.

                                            F#       C#
                                   Whoaaa   who I am
       F#                D#m       E       F#   C#  F#
I'm no longer longer no longer the Wayward Son

       F#                D#m       E       F#   C#  F#
I'm no longer longer no longer the Wayward Son

I'm no longer longer no longer the Wayward Son
