Lyrics & Chords

Intro 2x

F  C/E  D min 

F  C/E  D min   C Maj (w/ C sus/dim pickin’ the hook)

 

Verse 1

C Maj

My train leaves at four thirty  

                                   E dim\B flat   F Maj

And I’m feelin’ a bit dirty from my day

        G flat dim  G Maj 7

I’ve been workin’ hard in suburban yards

                                                                C Maj

For nothing more than minimum pay

C Maj

But up ahead in my redwood shed I lay my weary head to bed

E dim\B flat   F Maj 

I like to rise before the dew drops fade

         G flat dim  G Maj 7

We got a billion stars and Joe’s Bar

                                                            C Maj

And Halloween and Christmas parades

 

Chorus 1 (same chords as Intro)

Cause I’m on my way

On my way back Home

Yes I’m on my way

On my way back Home

Chorus 2

Cause I’m on my way

So come on down to this mountain town

And hoot and holler and hang around with me

Cause I found my way

Found my way back Home

Yes I found my way

Found my way back Home
