HOMEWARD BOUND (Listen to midi)

 

           G                                                  D                                   Bm Em

1. I'm sittin' in the railway station, got a ticket for my destination,       mm.

   Am                                                  F

    on a tour of one night stands, my suitcase and guitar in hand,

            G              

    and every stop is neatly planned, for a poet and a one man band

 

                     C                     G                       C

Homeward bound, I wish I was homeward bound,

  G                          F

home, where my thought's escaping,

  G                          F

home, where my music's playing,

  G                        F                        D         G

home, where my love lies waiting silently for me.

 

     G                                                  D                                      Bm Em

2. Everyday's an endless stream of cigarettes and magazines,      mm

            Am                                                        F

    and each town looks the same to me , the movies and the factories,

            G 

    and every stranger's face I see reminds me that I long to be.

 

+ CHORUS

 

         G                                                  D                                       Bm Em

3. Tonight I'll sing my songs again, I'll play the game and pretend,      mm,

         Am                                                     F

    but all my words come back to me, in shades of mediocrity,

            G       

    like emptiness in harmony I need someone to comfort me.

                         G        Em        G       Em

+ CHORUS  + silently for me, silently for me  ... (rep. and fade)

 

    (Simon and Garfunkel)
