The Wannadies - My Home Town
Album: The Wannadies (1990)
Transcribed by Jon Malmin (jogusmal@hotmail.com)
Tuning: Standard E

Obscure band, obscure song, obscure little town... But anyone who's grown up
in Skelleftea, Sweden, will recognize this as a classic, and a local anthem!
Note that for the chords D/F# and B7/D#, the second note is only the root note,
played by a bassist on the recording. They're entirely optional on guitar. 
Oh, and the chord progressions for the verse and chorus never change throughout the song!

Intro: 
Em  D/F#  G  Am (x2)
Em  D/F#  G  Am  B7  B7/D#  Em  C

[Verse]
Em  D/F#        G       Am
...This is "my home town song"
Em    D/F#      G          Am
...A "how it's like at home song"
Em  D/F#     G     Am   B7
...Spending hours all alone
B7/D#    Em     C
Waiting by the phone

Em   D/F#            G     Am      
It's hard to say come closer
Em   D/F#        G     Am
When you're so far away
Em   D/F#           G      Am
And sometimes it's hard to remember that
B7   B7/D#         Em       C
...Tomorrow's as close as yesterday

[Chorus]
Am      G
This is my home town
C      G   D       
This is my home town
Am      G 
This is my home town
C         G
This is...
D       Em    [Same chord progression as the intro]
My hometooown...

[Verse]
I'm dossing up and down these streets,
Where nothing ever seems to change
Where wet green grass meets dust and dirt
That's where love no longer hurts

I've never been a loner,
At least I've never wanted to be one
So whatever you do, remember one thing:
My home is where my heart is and...

[Chorus]
This is my home town...

[Repeat the intro chord progression again]

[Verse one reprise; BASS NOTES ONLY, NOT CHORDS]
E   F#          G         A
...This is "my home town song"
E     F#        G          A
...A "how it's like at home song"
E   F#        G    A    B
...Spending hours all alone
D#      E        C
Waiting by the phone 

(You can start to pick the guitar chords here)
Em    D/F#            G    Am
It's hard to say "come closer"
Em    D/F#      G     Am
When you're so far away
Em   D/F#     G     Am           B7
Whatever you do, remember one thing:
   B7/D#           Em       C
My home is where my heart is and...

[Chorus]
This is my home town...

[Repeat the intro chord progression once again, slow it down at the end and finish with an Em]
