           / D - Dmaj7 - / G - A - /

     

    D           Dmaj7       D7sus4 (1)

      When you look into my eyes

             G             Em7         A7 (1)

    And you see the crazy gypsy in my soul

    D           Dmaj7       D7sus4 (1)

    It always comes as a surprise

             G             Em7         A7 (1)

    When I feel my withered roots begin to grow.

     

    Chorus 1:

            F#m7 (1)                     / G G/F# Em7 - /

    Well I never had a place that I could call my very own

          G                 A7                     

    But that's alright, my love, 'cause you're my home.

     

    / D - Dmaj7 - / G - A - /

     

    D           Dmaj7       D7sus4 (1)

    When you touch my weary head

             G             Em7            A7 (1)

    And you tell me everything will be alright

            D         Dmaj7         D7sus4 (1)

    You say, "Use my body for your bed.

            G                  Em7                 A7 (1)

    And my love will keep you warm throughout the night."

     

    Chorus 2:

               F#m7 (1)                     / G G/F# Em7 - /

    Well I'll never be a stranger and I'll never be  alone

        G             A7                     

    Wherever we're together, that's my home.

     

    / D - Dmaj7 - / G - A - /

     

    Bridge:

    Bm               A            D (1)     

    Home can be the Pennsylvania Turnpike,

    Bm        A              Em (1)

    Indiana's early morning dew

    Bm              A            D (1)

    High up in the hills of California,

    Bm             A               Em (1)

    Home is just another word for you.

    D        Dmaj7        D7sus4 (1)

      If I travel all my life

           G             Em7            A7 (1)

    And I never get to stop and settle down

    D            Dmaj7          D7sus4 (1)

      Long as I have you by my side

               G              Em7              A7 (1)

    There's a roof above and good walls all around.

     

               F#m7 (1)                      / G G/F# Em7 - /

    You're my castle, you're my cabin, and my instant pleasure dome.
