 DA
 I was pourin' coffee for table number one
 BmAG
couldn't help but hear him what was going on
 DA
 It got my attention when I heard a young man's voice
 BmAG
Saying sheriff I'll be going now if its alright with you boys
 ABm
Those years I spent in prison stole to much time from me
 GD/F#EmA
I won't waste another minute if I'm really free
--Chorus--
 GD
I'm goin' home my family's waitin' for me Goin' home
I'm amazed that they still love me
 BmAGA
They forgive me for the bitter seeds I've sown 
 BmAG
 Heaven knows I've been away to long
 ADGA
So now I'm going home....  
 DA
 A burger and a special for table number eight
 BmAG
I was bustin' number seven when I heard her young heart break
 DA
 He told her it was over they could never meet again
 BmAG
That he found a taste of courage twisted on his wedding band
 ABm
Her tears began to fall but they could not touch his heart
 GD/F#EmA
heard him say "I'm sorry But it was all wrong from the start"
--Chorus--
 GD
I'm goin' home my family's waitin' for me Goin' home
I'm amazed that they still love me
 BmAGA
They forgive me for the bitter seeds I've sown 
 BmAG
 Heaven knows I've been away to long
 AD
So now I'm going home....
 ABm
There's a million other stories from the Halfway Home Cafe
 ABmA
It's a never ending saga and they're played out every day
 DA
But this one's finally over the foods all put away
 BmAG
And the coffee pot stands empty at the Halfway Home Cafe
 DA
But over in the corner at table number three
 BmAG
Sits a father and a runaway well it looks that way to me
 ABm
I said "I hate to interrupt you but its really gettin' late"
 GD/F#EmA
The young girl looked up smilin she said "Mister that's ok"
--Chorus--
 GD
I'm goin' home my family's waitin' for me Goin' home
I'm amazed that they still love me
 BmAGA
They forgive me for the bitter seeds I've sown 
 BmAG
 Heaven knows I've been away to long
 AG
So now I'm going home....
 AD
 Hhmmm... I'm goin' home
