[Intro] 

D D  D A  G D  D A  D D 


[Verse]

D
I know they say you can't go home again
F#m
I just had to come back one last time
G
Ma'am I know you don't know me from Adam
D                                            A
But these handprints on the front steps are mine

D 
Up those stairs in that little back bedroom
F#m
Is where i did my homework and i learned to play guitar
G
Now i bet you didn't know under that live oak
D                                 A
My favorite dog is buried in the yard


[Chorus]

G                                            D
I thought if i could touch this place or feel it
     Em                              D
This brokenness inside me might start healing
G
Out here it's like i'm someone else
    Bm                             G
I thought that maybe i could find myself
      D                               G
If I could just come in I swear I'll leave
             D                           A                D
Won't take nothing but a memory of the house that built me


[Verse]

D
Mama cut out pictures of houses for years
F#m
From "Better Homes and Garden" magazine
G 
Plans were drawn concrete poured nail by nail and board by board
D                          A
Daddy gave life to mama's dream


[Chorus]

G                                            D
I thought if i could touch this place or feel it
     Em                              D
This brokenness inside me might start healing
G
Out here it's like i'm someone else
    Bm                             G
I thought that maybe i could find myself
      D                               G
If I could just come in I swear I'll leave
             D                           A                D
Won't take nothing but a memory of the house that built me


[Bridge]

Bm                                          D
You leave home and you move on and you do the best you can
Em                                    G        A
I got lost in this whole world and forgot who i am


[Chorus]

G                                            D
I thought if i could touch this place or feel it
     Em                              D
This brokenness inside me might start healing
G
Out here it's like i'm someone else
    Bm                             G
I thought that maybe i could find myself
      D                               G
If I could just come in I swear I'll leave
             D                           A                D
Won't take nothing but a memory of the house that built me

Awesome work. I just saw a video of Miranda play this and she is using a Bm in place of the F#m you have in the verse. That said, you did a great job on this tab.
