Tabbed by: Evan


Tuning: Standard

This song uses only a few chords repeated so I will just name them and show where they 
played in the song.

   G       Em7       Dsus4       Cadd9       Dsus4/F#

Intro: G G Em7 Dsus4 Cadd9 Cadd9 Em7 Dsus4 G
      (The last G is the first one where the lyrics start)

Theres also a keyboard playing and heres the tab for if you have a second
guitar and want to play it. It also plays at other various points in the
song but its exactly the same throughout.

G     G            Em7        Dsus4    Cadd9
These steps they remind me of places I used to know,

    Em7           Dsus4        G
The smell and the sand of Lake Tahoe,

    Em7             Dsus4           Cadd9
The restaurants and strip malls and chimney smoke,

G         G             Em7        Dsus4    Cadd9
And these bricks they remind me of places I used to go,

     Em7        Dsus4    G
With log cabins lining a dirt road,

     Em7     Dsus4       Cadd9
When my obligations were in the snow,

G    Dsus4/F#   Em7       Dsus4    Cadd9
     I   miss   home and  I miss   you,

G             Dsus4/F#    Em7      Dsus4      Cadd9
 When there's no one    around and nothing to do,


G   G         Em7          Dsus4         Cadd9
And I still remember those weekends when I was nine,

    Em7        Dsus4         G
And four hours seemed like a lifetime,

    Em7          Dsus4       Cadd9
But look out the window son, you'll be fine,

G   G            Em7              Dsus4         Cadd9
And I traced the railroad through mountains and watched the trees,

    Em7          Dsus4      G
The white powder resting on their leaves,

   Em7        Dsus4     Cadd9         Em7   Dsus4
As I pulled a blanket over my knees,

For the solo, one guitar plays the verse chords with the same strumming

Guitar 1: G  G  Em7  Dsus4  Cadd9  Cadd9  Em7  Dsus4  G  x2

The song picks right back into the chorus with a longer chord progression.

G   Dsus4/F#   Em7       Dsus4    Cadd9   Cadd9   Em7   Dsus4
Oh, I miss     home and  I miss   you,

G            Dsus4/F#   Em7       Dsus4      Cadd9   Cadd9   Em7   Dsus4
When there's no one   around and  nothing to do,

G     Dsus4/F#         Em7     Dsus4    Cadd9   Cadd9   Em7   Dsus4
And I know that you're keeping busy     too,

G   Dsus4/F#   Em7       Dsus4    Cadd9   Cadd9   Em7   Dsus4
But I miss     home and  I miss   you.


and end it on G and you should have played an awesome and simple song.
