     ____________________
   /  Rufus Wainwright  /  I think this song is about how "travel out to find
  /  Hometown Waltz    /  your way home" is a waste of time as there's nothing
 /  Want Two          /  special to find out there. So eventually you'll end
/____________________/  back home with the frustration of that this greener
                       grass isn't to be found anywhere.

I've tried my best to arrange the chords so an acoustic guitar
is able to stand alone, but since they really aren't well-fit
for guitar, the last chords (Fmmaj7, G,b9...) are really difficult
making sound good. Remember to accentuate/intone the bass notes,
as they're very important for making it sound good.
                                                                  _E_A_D_G_B_E_
