Take The Long Way Home

Supertramp

 EbBbCEbBbCEbBbC
Intro:          x2
 EbBb
  So you think you're a  Romeo,
 FC
  Playing a part in a  picture-show.
 BbFC
Take the  long way home,  take the  long way home.
 EbBb
  'Cause you're the joke of the  neighborhood,
 FC
  Why should you care if you're  feeling good.
 BbFC
Take the  long way home,  take the  long way home.

 EmEm7AmAm7
  But there are times that you  feel you're part of the  scenery,  
 FDmBbF
All the  greenery,  is comin'  down,  boy.
 GEm7AmAm7
  And then your wife seems to  think you're part of the  furniture,  
 FDmBbFG
Oh, it's pe-  culiar,  she used to  be  so  nice.

 EbBb
  When lonely days turn to  lonely nights,
 FC
  You take a trip to the  city lights.
 BbFC
And take the  long way home,  take the  long way home.
 EbBb
  You never see what you  want to see,
 FC
  Forever playing to the  gallery.
 BbFC
You take the  long way home,  take the  long way home.

 EmEm7AmAm7
  And when you're up on the  stage, it's so un-  believable,  
 FDmBbF
Unfor-  gettable,  how they a-  dore  you,
 GEm7AmAm7
  But then your wife seems to  think you're losing your  sanity,  
 FBbFG
Oh, cal-  amity, is there  no  way  out?

Solo: (Intro)
 EmEm7AmAm7
  Does it feel that your  life's become a cat-  astrophe?  
 FDmBbF
Oh, it  has to be,  for you to  grow,  boy.
 GEm7AmAm7
  When you look through the  years and see what you  could have been,  
 FDmBbFG
Oh, what you  might have been,  if you'd  had  more  time.

 EbBb
  So, when the day comes to  settle down,
 FC
  Who's to blame if you're  not around?
 BbFC
You took the  long way home,  you took the  long way home,
 BbFC
You took the  long way home,  you took the  long way home. (repeat & fade)

The Eb chord should be a Cm7.It's almost the same chord but you want the C on the A string. The F on Take the long way home should be left out and play the Bb and the C for a full bar each.

the Am7  at "Part of the scenery"

Try playing the low G with your pinky. it makes a nice walk down to the F.

The song is written in 4/4 most of the chord changes are on 1st and 3rd beats but the chords at the end of  fraze last for a whole bar.
