Gordon Lightfoot - Long Way Back Home


CAPO: 4th Fret



[INTRO:] C

[VERSE 1:]
                                                           F
From the railhead to the boatyard, from the factory to the farm 
                     G                             C
From the mine to the mill-yard, I've weathered the storm 
                                                 F
From the bar room to the bedpost, I've wasted my days 
                 C                          G
All I have is my drink and the time left to think 
                      C
While the time slips away


[CHORUS:]
                Dm    G                      C
Just look at my face___ when you tell me goodbye 
                    Em                       Dm   Em
You'll see what I'm after, by the look in my eye
           F                 G
Just walk away and leave me alone 
                     C
It's a long way back home


[VERSE 2:]
                                                    F
Now in case you should ask me, what it is that I've done 
            G                      C
I say I'm a soldier who once had a son 
                                                F
But my son doesn't know me, that's his right to choose 
                C                      G
Oh, say can you see, my best friend is me 
                     C
I'm a friend I could use


[CHORUS:]
                Dm    G                      C
Just look at my face___ when you tell me goodbye 
                    Em                       Dm   Em
You'll see what I'm after, by the look in my eye
           F                 G
Just walk away and leave me alone 
                     C
It's a long way back home


[VERSE 3:]
                                          F
Now the pages have faded, the story grows cold 
                      G                       C
And the plot falls to ashes like the ruins of old 
                                           F
Those rats in my rafters, they're after my shoes 
             C                         G
And anything else they can find on the shelf 
                     C
I've said they could use


[CHORUS:]
                Dm    G                      C
Just look at my face___ when you tell me goodbye 
                    Em                       Dm   Em
You'll see what I'm after, by the look in my eye
           F                 G
Just walk away and leave me alone 
                     C
It's a long way back home
                     
It's a long way back home
