[Verse 1]
D                     A          D
Staring at a cross of splintered wood
   Bm                       A
My sins washed away through Christ’s own blood
       Bm        D               G               Bm
All my blessings gone, though my mind it wanders on
      D          A    D
Going home in my memory
            G
Between the years and the miles
     D
I am broken and down
         Bm                   A
Bless me father, where do I begin
      Bm           D
On my hands and my knees
     G             Bm
I go crawling back home
   D        A          D
To find absolution within

[Verse 2]
D                       A         D
Eighteen years old, but not yet a man 
     Bm              A
With misplaced ideologies 
     Bm          G         D
Recognizing only God as my equal 
                 A             D
Left home and disgraced my family 
                              A        D
With a dream in my head and a restless soul 
        Bm              A
Sensing I would soon be free
          Bm                 D
I took to heart my granddads fables 
                             A    D
They made up the core of my identity 
    Bm                 A
For eight long years I tramped through the fallout 
   Bm           A
Of nuclear society 
    Bm   D        G      D         Bm        A    D
The underclass forgotten mass in a nation of revelry 

[Chorus]
D         G        D        A
Fare thee well, my old dear friend 
    D              A       Bm         G
The road goes ever on, but I am going home 
        D        A     D
Back to where it all began

[Verse 3]
     D              A   D
In a filthy rundown tenement 
  Bm                      A
I set out to spread God’s name 
              Bm         G         D
I thought the word would start the fire 
       G           A       D
And my voice would fan the flame 
                                A       D
But I soon learned that in this hopelessness 
        Bm                 A
A great many things went unsaid 
         Bm              A      D
My first lesson was that good intentions 
                      A        D
Aren’t gonna keep you warm and fed 
Bm                        A
With no recourse I took a job at the packing house 
   Bm                 A
No one who I could edify 
      Bm          G         D
As my dreams like leaves in autumn 
    G         A       D
Disappeared before my eyes

[Chorus] 2x
D         G        D        A
Fare thee well, my old dear friend 
    D              A       Bm         G
The road goes ever on, but I am going home 
        D        A     D
Back to where it all began 

[Solo] (first part goes something like this. Guitar is to distorted to figure out the whole thing)

The road goes ever on, but I am going home

Back to where it all began 

        D        A     D
Back to where it all began
