Homeward Bound


by Paul Simon (Simon and Garfunkle)
(Capo 3rd Fret)

I'm sittin' in a railway station, got a ticket for my destination
On a tour of one night stands, my suitcase and guitar in hand
And every stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man band

G - - - / Bm - - - / Dm - - - / E - - - / 
Am - - - / F - - - / G - - - / D - - - //

 C:	Homeward bound, I wish I was - homeward bound
Home - where my thought's escaping
Home - where the music's playing
Home - where my love lies waiting silently for me

G - - - / C - - - /  x2  / G - Am7 - /    /    / D - G - //

Every day’s an endless stream of cigarettes and magazines
And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories
And every stranger's face I see reminds me that I long to be

 C:	Homeward bound, I wish I was - homeward bound
Home - where my thought's escaping
Home - where the music's playing
Home - where my love lies waiting silently for me

Tonight I'll sing my songs again, I'll play the game and pretend
But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity
Like emptiness in harmony, I need someone to comfort me

 C:	Homeward bound, I wish I was - homeward bound
Home - where my thought's escaping
Home - where the music's playing
Home - where my love lies waiting silently for me

 T:	Silently for me...

G - - - / Bm - - - / Dm - - - / G - - - //
