       Hi there!  I just watched the Grammy's and I'm in
love with this song!!  It's so pretty!  This version is 
a bit easier to play for beginners than the others.  
Here's a link for the song or go buy it on itunes!!

I'm llguitar on Instagram or come visit at www.liveloveguitar.com  :)

**It's been suggested that the F's in the chorus are Fmaj7's [x33210].
(Because I can't barre I play Fmaj7's for all the F's and it sounds
good that way too.)**


Standard Tuning          
W/ Capo on 5


[Intro]

C G F C  
C G C


[Verse]

            C
I know they say, you can't go home again
Em
 I just had to come back one last time
F
Ma'am I know, you don't know me from Adam
          C                                  G
But these hand prints on the front steps are mine

         C
Up those stairs, in that little back bedroom
           Em
Is where I did my homework and I learned to play guitar
      F
And I bet you didn't know, under that live oak
   C                             G
My favorite dog is buried in the yard


[Chorus]

  F                                       C
I thought if I could touch this place, or feel it
     Dm                               C
This brokenness inside me might start healin'
    F
Out here it's like I'm someone else,
  Am                                F
I thought that maybe I could find myself
   C                                 F
If I could just come in I swear I'll leave
                         C
Won't take nothin' but a memory
         G                  C
From the house that... built me


[Verse]

     C
Mama cut out pictures of houses for years
      Em
From "Better Homes and Garden" magazine
           F
Plans were drawn and concrete poured and
(F)
Nail by nail and board by board
C                               G
  Daddy gave life to Mama's dream


[Chorus]

  F                                       C
I thought if I could touch this place, or feel it
     Dm                               C
This brokenness inside me might start healin'
    F
Out here it's like I'm someone else,
  Am                                F
I thought that maybe I could find myself
   C                                 F
If I could just come in I swear I'll leave
                         C
Won't take nothin' but a memory
         G                  C
From the house that... built me
 

[Bridge]

    Am                                 C
You leave home and you move on and you do the best you can
      Dm                            F          G
I got lost in this old world and forgot, who I am


[Chorus]

  F                                      C
I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
     Dm                               C
This brokenness inside me might start healing
    F
Out here it's like I'm someone else
  Am                                F.....stop
I thought that maybe I could find myself
   C                                F
If I could walk around I swear I'll leave
                         C
Won't take nothin' but a memory
         G                   F   C  Dm  G C -once
From the house that.... built me


Have Fun:)
