[Verse 1]
       G
I'm sitting in the railway station,
       G/F#                     G7/F           E   E7
Got a ticket for my destination------,  mm-mm, mm----,
Am
On a tour of one-night stands, 
Am/G   F
 My suitcase and guitar in hand,
      G                                 D
And every stop is neatly planned for a poet,
     D7             G
And one-man band---------!


[Chorus]
 G (Am7)(G/B)   C        C C/B C/A G
Home-----ward bound,  ...I wish I was,
 G (Am7)(G/B)   C    C C/B C/A
Home-----ward bound,
 G               ((Fmaj7))  (G)   (F)  (C)
Home ...where my thought's es - cap - ing
 G             (Fmaj7) (G)   (F)  (C)
Home ...where my mus - ic's play - ing,
 G             (Fmaj7) (G)  (F)  (C)
Home ...where my love lies wait - ing
 D     Dsus2  G
Silent - ly  for me!


[Verse 2]
  G
Every day's an endless stream...
      G/F#                     G7/F           E   E7
...Of cigarettes and magazines------,  mm-mm, mm----,
     Am
And each town looks the same to me, 
Am/G   F
 The movies and the factories,
     G
And every strangers' face I see...
          D              D7          G
...Re - minds me that I long to be--------...


[Chorus]
 G (Am7)(G/B)   C        C C/B C/A G
Home-----ward bound,  ...I wish I was,
 G (Am7)(G/B)   C    C C/B C/A
Home-----ward bound,
 G               (Fmaj7)  (G)   (F)  (C)
Home ...where my thought's es - cap - ing
 G             (Fmaj7) (G)   (F)  (C)
Home ...where my mus - ic's play - ing,
 G             (Fmaj7) (G)  (F)  (C)
Home ...where my love lies wait - ing
 D     Dsus2  G
Silent - ly  for me!


[Verse 3]
      G
To - night I'll sing my songs again,
     G/F#                      G7/F           E   E7
I'll play the game and pretend------,  mm-mm, mm-----,
    Am
But all my words come back to me,
Am/G  F                           G
 In shades of mediocrity, like emptiness and harmony,
   D                D7         G
I need someone to comfort me------!


[Chorus]
 G (Am7)(G/B)   C        C C/B C/A G
Home-----ward bound,  ...I wish I was,
 G (Am7)(G/B)   C    C C/B C/A
Home-----ward bound,
 G               (Fmaj7)  (G)   (F)  (C)
Home ...where my thought's es - cap - ing
 G             (Fmaj7) (G)   (F)  (C)
Home ...where my mus - ic's play - ing,
 G             (Fmaj7) (G)  (F)  (C)
Home ...where my love lies wait - ing
 D     Dsus2  G      G/F#           G7/F
Silent - ly  for me,       silently for me!
