                         Am     F                                      - Am - F

1. I've always known, since I was a young boy,

                Am    F                               Am   - E

    in this world everything’s good as bad.

                   Am                    F                               Am     - F

    Now my father told me, "Always speak a true word."

              Am                                F                     Am

    and I have to say that is the best advice I’ve had.

 

                   Dm                                    Am

    Because something burns inside of me,

         Dm                          Am

    it’s everything I long to be,

          Dm         G       C                   F         E

   and lies they only stop me from feeling free !

   

Am                           Dm                 F                               G

Like a hobo from a broken home nothing's gonna stop me,

Dm                            C                   F                               E

Like a hobo from a broken home nothing's gonna stop me.

 

      Am - F - Am - E

+   Aha….

 

                      Am             F                   Am    - F

2. I've never yearned for anybody’s fortune,

                    Am            F                           Am     - E

    the less I have, the more I am a happy man.

                   Am                     F                                   Am   - F

    Now my mother told me, “Always keep your head on,

                   Am                              F                                Am  

    because some may praise you just to get what they want."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                        Dm                     Am

    And I said, "Mama I am not afraid !

    Dm                                           Am

    they will take what they would take,

             Dm             G       C                   F      E

    and what would life be like without a few mistakes ? "

 

Am                           Dm                 F                               G

Like a hobo from a broken home nothing's gonna stop me,

Dm                            C                   F                               E

Like a hobo from a broken home nothing's gonna stop me.

 

    Am - Dm - F - E (4x)

+  Aha ....

 

Am                           Dm                 F                               G

Like a hobo from a broken home nothing's gonna stop me,

Dm                            C                   F                                     E

Like a hobo from a broken home nothing's gonna stop me now.
