[Intro] E B A E B E

[Verse 1]
E
I know they say you can't go home again
G#m
I just had to come back one last time
A9
Ma'am I know you don't know me from Adam
E                                            B
But these handprints on the front steps are mine

E 
Up those stairs in that little back bedroom
G#m
Is where i did my homework and i learned to play guitar
A9
Now i bet you didn't know under that live oak
E                                 B
My favorite dog is buried in the yard

[Chorus]
A9                                            E
I thought if i could touch this place or feel it
     F#m                              G#m
This brokenness inside me might start healing
A9 
Out here it's like i'm someone else
    C#m                             A9
I thought that maybe i could find myself
      E                               A9
If I could just come in I swear I'll leave
             E                           B                E
Won't take nothing but a memory of the house that built me

[Verse 2]
E
Mama cut out pictures of houses for years
G#m
From "Better Homes and Garden" magazine
A9 
Plans were drawn concrete poured nail by nail and board by board
E                          B
Daddy gave life to mama's dream

[Chorus]
A9                                            E
I thought if i could touch this place or feel it
     F#m                              G#m
This brokenness inside me might start healing
A9 
Out here it's like i'm someone else
    C#m                             A9
I thought that maybe i could find myself
      E                               A9
If I could just come in I swear I'll leave
             E                           B                E
Won't take nothing but a memory of the house that built me

[Bridge]
C#m                                          E
You leave home and you move on and you do the best you can
F#m                                    A9        B
I got lost in this whole world and forgot who i am

[Chorus]
A9                                            E
I thought if i could touch this place or feel it
     F#m                              G#m
This brokenness inside me might start healing
A9 
Out here it's like i'm someone else
    C#m                             A9
I thought that maybe i could find myself
      E                               A9
If I could just come in I swear I'll leave
             E                           B                E
Won't take nothing but a memory of the house that built me

[Outro] A E F#m B A9 E
