 VERSE 1:
  A               B7             E          E
 Just around the corner there's heartache--
  A                    B7    E       E
 Down the street that losers use--
     A           B7              E          E
 If you can wade in through the teardrops,
         A              B7           E      E
 You'll find me at the Home of the Blues--
  
 VERSE 2:
 A           B7           E          E
 I walk and cry while my heartbeat
        A             B7          E      E
 Keeps time with the drag of my shoes--
      A         B7                  E         E  
 The sun never shines through this window of mine--
       A           B7           E      E
 It's dark at the Home of the Blues--
  
 BREAK:
               A       A                        E          E
 Oh, but the place is filled with the sweetest mem'ries--
  B7           B7          E       E
 Mem'ries so sweet that I cry--
   A               A          E            E
 Dreams that I've had left me  feelin' so bad,
 F#7            F#7         F#7           B7    B7
 I just want to give up and lay down and die--
  
 VERSE 3:
  A            B7              E           E
 So if you've just lost your sweetheart,
         A                B7           E       E
 And it seems there's no good way to choose--
  A              B7          E          E
 Come along with me, mis'ry loves company--
         A              B7           E       E
 You're welcome at the Home of the Blues--
  
 LEAD TACIT--

 VERSE 1 / CODA:

 Just around the corner there's heartache--
  A                    B7    E       E
 Down the street that losers use--
     A           B7              E         E
 If you can wade in through the teardrops,
         A              B7           E      E
 You'll find me at the Home of the Blues--

Great lesson! The intro is note for note right on the money, with the chords I can figure out pretty much everything else.


Thanks for the lesson, two thumbs up and 5 stars!

the intro is wrong in one spot. It should be 4,2,0 on the second string instead of 3,2,0.
