Title:          Homeward
Artist:         The Sundays (from "static & silence")
Transcribed by: Mitch Wiedemann         mc2@lightlink.com

6/8 time        Key: B flat             guitar capo 3rd fret

here's an approximation of the intro thingy for one guitar
    G                       Em          C

[:G     |Em   C  :]      four times

[G      .       .       |G      .       .       ]
                                You've stolen my
[Am     .       .       |Am     .       .       ]
[G      .       .       |G      .       .       ]
                                & I want you to re-
[Am     .       .       |Am     .       .       ]
[Bm     .       .       |Bm     .       .       ]
                now      what'll I do?
[Em     .       .       |Em     .       .       ]
                         living         alone
[:G             |Em             :]      two times

you've stolen my heart,
& it hurts me to remember
now where'll I go to?
living alone

[G      .       .       |F      .       .       ]
                        a butterfly in the
[Em     .       .       |D.     .       .       ]
wind,           is       drifting like I do
[G      .       .       |G.     .       .       ]
        it's    dumb -  I know what I want to say
[G      .       .       |G      .       .       ]
        but I   can't    even take one breath

[:G             |Em             :]      four times

as night falls
I hear voices on the radio
I'll follow their dreams
& wake up alone

a butterfly in the wind is drifting like I do
it's dumb I know what I want to say
but I can't even take one breath

so now still burning silently away
a storm
without the thunder

[:G     Am      |Bm     Am      :] play four times end on G


the basic "Sundays" strum like this

remember capo 3rd.

        3rd     G (for example)
(e)     [-------3-------33------33------3-------33------33------]
(B)     [-------0-------00------00------0-------00------00------]
(G)     [-------0-------00------00------0-------00------00------]
(D)     [-------0-----------------------0-----------------------]
(A)     [-------2-----------------------2-----------------------]
(E)     [-------3-----------------------3-----------------------]
strum           D       DU      DU      D       DU      DU
                1       2       3       4       5       6

try to play the Am with your 2nd, 3rd and 4th fingers so that the
transition to the Bm is easier

the song on the CD has at least two guitars (one acoustic
and one electric)  the transcription above is for the acoustic.

the electric is mostly the same except for at the beginning of the
choruses.  shouldn't be hard to figure out.
