The lyrics are contained within | | signifying each bar.

Verse 1

|Sitting on the west coast of Ireland | looking out onto the ocean|

|Knowing youre looking straight on back| feeling that same wave of motion|

|Take my sweatshirt off| and my t-shirt as usual|

|Kiss the sand I got some water in my mouth| man its hard being spiritual.|

Chorus

|And the sun shines right on down| to the core of my bones|
|And as much as I know Im far away| I know Im going home|

Verse 2

|Could see myself flying in| to Minneapolis international|

|See my folks and my brother and my sister| and the smell of the dog on their clothes|

|When I get home Im gonna lay right down| to the cool April sun|

|Gonna lay in the grass till I start itching and Id find| probably move along a few times|

Chorus

|And the sun shines right on down| to the core of my bones|
|And as much as I know Im far away| I know Im going home.|

Verse 3

|I can get out to California| I had San Francisco on my mind|

|I could get down to New Orleans| and have that music knock me to the ground|

|Im gonna stay here| and watch another Wisconsin sun go down|

|And have dinner with my parents| and head on in to my small small enough town|

Chorus

|And the sun shines right on down| to the core of my bones|
|And as much as I know Im far away| I know Im going home.|

Verse 4

|And one day were all gonna be a pile of bones| yeah thats what were all gonna be|

|But Ill still be smiling I guarantee| as long as they dont bury me|

|I wanna be up and I wanna be able to feel the air| and be where the river meets the sea|

|Where the sky meets the ocean and where space meets the sky| Ill be singing all of us free|

|All of us free|

Chorus:

|And the sun shines right on down| to the core of my bones|
|And as much as I know Im far away| I know Im going home.|

|I know Im going home|
|I know Im going home|
|I know Im going home|

Think you should play an F# just before stepping up to the G, otherwise seems good to me!
