HOMECOMING (WALTER'S SONG) - Vienna Teng


F           F                     F                   F
it's desert ice outside but this diner has thawed my ears
     F           F                    F                        G
hot coffee in a clean white mug and a smile when the waitress hears
           Am                   F
that I was born in North Caro - lina
        F
not an hour from her home town
        F                     F                  G
and we used to play the same pizza parlor pin - ball

F              F                   F            F           
and there's a glance in time sus - pended as I wonder how it is
F                            F               F                G
we've been swept up just by circumstance to where the coyote lives
          Am                 F
where my days are strips of highway
           F
and she's wiping tables down
F                     F                G
holding on and still waiting for that windfall

           F    F       F
but I've    come home
F                      F             F    G
even though I've never had so far to go
F    F        F
I've    come home

F                    F                       F
I pay the check and leave the change from a crumpled ten-dollar bill
                             F           F               G
head across the street where VACANCY is burning in neon still
         Am                F
well the night eats up my body heat
            F
and there's no sign of another
       F                    F              G
and I find myself slipping down into that black

F               F                      F               F
but things are good I've got a lot of followers of my faith
                           F            F                 G
I've got a whole congre - gation living in my head these days
         Am                 F
and I'm preaching from the pulpit
   F           F
to cries of "Amen brother"
F                   F                    G
closing my eyes to feel the warmth come back

F    F    F       F     G
and I've    come home
      F                   F             F      G
even though I swear I've never been so alone
F      F       F
I've     come home

 F                 Am            F
I just want to be living as I'm dying
           F
just like everybody here
                             F                          F
just want to know my little flicker of time is worth - while
       Am                    F
and I don't know where I'm driving to
       F
but I know I'm getting old
               F                F             G
and there's a blessing in every moment every mile

F           F                        F
thin white terry bars of soap and a couple little plastic cups
F                         F                        F          G
old Gideons Bible in the nightstand drawer saying "Go on open up"
           Am                F
well I'll kneel down on the carpet here
          F                 F
though I never was sure of God
            F                       F              G
think to - night I'll give Him the benefit of the doubt

F                            F                     F
I switch off the lights and imagine that waitress outlined in the bed
F                         F
her hair falling all a - round me
        F                  G
I smile and shake my head
        Am                 F
well we all write our own endings
        F
and we all have our own scars
          F               F                     G
but to - night I think I see what it's all a - bout

F        F   F       F    G
because I've   come home
F    F       F
I've   come home
