G  F  C


[Verse 1]

                G(D)
                I'm sittin in a railway station
                      F#(D)                    F(D)  E
                Got a ticket for my destination
                Am
                On a tour of one night stands
                   F
                My suitcase and guitar in hand
                    G
                And every stop is neatly planned
                      D
                For a poet and a one man band


[Chorus]

                G        C               G             C
                Homeward bound, I wish I was, Homeward bound
                G              F         C
                Home, where my thoughts escaping
                G              F       C
                Home, where my music's playing
                G              F         C
                Home, where my love lies waiting
                D        G
                Silently for me


[Verse 2]

                G(D)
                Every day's an endless stream
                   F#(D)              F(D) E
                Of cigarettes and magazines
                    Am
                And each town looks the same to me
                    F
                The movies and the factories
                    G
                And every stranger's face I see
                  D
                Reminds me that I long to be

[Verse 3]

                G(D)
                Tonight I'll sing my songs again
                     F#(D)                 F(D) E
                I'll play the game and pretend
                    Am
                But all my words come back to me
                   F
                In shades of mediocrity
                     G
                Like emptyness in harmony
                  D
                I need someone to comfort me.

[Outro]

                F#(D)    F(D)        G  F  C  G
                Silently for me ...

What does the big % symbol on the last mesure of the verse mean? On the G chord?
