          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.
