Halfway Home Cafe  Ricky Skaggs

[D]I [D]wa[D]s [A]pourin' coffee for table number one
[Bm]I c[A]ou[G]ldn't help but hear him what was going on
[D]It[A] got my attention when I heard a young man's voice
[Bm]Say[A]in[G]g sheriff I'll be going now if its alright with you boys
[A]Th[Bm]ose years I spent in prison stole to much time from me
[G]I [D/F#]won't[Em] wa[A]ste another minute if I'm really free

--Chorus--
[G]I'[D]m goin' home my family's waitin' for me
Goin' home I'm amazed that they still love me
[Bm]The[A]y [G]fo[A]rgive me for the bitter seeds I've sown
[Bm]Hea[A]ve[G]n knows I've been away to long
[A]So[D] n[G]ow[A] I'm going home....

[D]bu[A]rg[A]er and a special for table number eight
[Bm]I w[A]as[G] bustin' number seven when I heard her young heart break
[D]He[A] told her it was over they could never meet again
[Bm]Tha[A]t [G]he found a taste of courage twisted on his wedding band
[A]He[Bm]r tears began to fall but they could not touch his heart G D/F# Em A
I heard him say "I'm sorry But it was all wrong from the start"

--Chorus--
[G]I'[D]m goin' home my family's waitin' for me
Goin' home I'm amazed that they still love me
Bm A G A T

[Bm]Hea[A]ve[G]n knows I've been away to long A D So now I'm going home....
[A]Th[Bm]ere's a million other stories from the Halfway Home Cafe A Bm A
It's a never ending saga and they're played out every day
[D]Bu[A]t this one's finally over the foods all put away
[Bm]And[A] t[G]he coffee pot stands empty at the Halfway Home Cafe
[D]Bu[A]t over in the corner at table number three
[Bm]Sit[A]s [G]a father and a runaway well it looks that way to me
[A]I [Bm]said "I hate to interrupt you but its really gettin' late"
[G]Th[D/F#]e you[Em]ng [A]girl looked up smilin she said "Mister that's ok"

--Chorus--
[G]I'[D]m goin' home my family's waitin' for me Goin' home
I'm amazed that they still love me
[Bm]The[A]y [G]fo[A]rgive me for the bitter seeds I've sown
[Bm]Hea[A]ve[G]n knows I've been away to long A G So now I'm going home....
