      G

I'm sitting in the railway station.

         G/F#                          G/F   E
Got a ticket to my destination.

Am                                                F
On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand

       G                                              Dsus4                             G
And every stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man band.

CHORUS:

                 C

Homeward bound,

             G
I wish I was,

                   C
Homeward bound,

G                          F
Home where my thought's escaping,

G                         F
Home where my music's playing,

G                       F
Home where my love lies waiting

D             G
Silently for me.

 

G
Every day's an endless stream

     G/F#                          G/F   E
Of cigarettes and magazines.

        Am                                                   F
And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories

       G                                        Dsus4                             G
And every stranger's face I see reminds me that I long to be

CHORUS

     G
Tonight I'll sing my songs again,

       G/F#                            G/F   E
I'll play the game and pretend.

      Am                                                 F
But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity

       G                                   Dsus4                             G
Like emptiness in harmony I need someone to comfort me.

CHORUS

 

G/F#            G/F       G
        Silently for me.
