A House Is Not a Home  Burt Bacharach

‚??A House Is Not A Home‚??
Originally Recorded By Burt Bacharach‚??
A [Bbmaj7]chair is still a c[Eb6]hair e-ven when there's no one [Bbmaj7]sitting there;[Bb7]
[Bb9]But a [Ebmaj7]chair is not a house, and a house is not a home
[Bb7-9]when there's[Ebmaj7] no one there to hold you [Cm7]tight, and no one there [Cm7]you can
[(F]kis[Bass)]s good nigh[Bbmaj7]t.
A room is still a [Eb6]room even when there's nothing [Bbmaj7]there but gloom[Bb7]
[Bb9]But a [Ebmaj7]room is not a [D7-9]house, and a [Gm7]house is not a [Fm7]home
[Bb7-9]when the two[Ebmaj7] of us are far apart and o[Cm7]ne of us has a broken he[Cm7]art.
[(F] [Bass)] [Bbmaj7]  
[Eb]Now and then I call your name and [Bb]suddenly your face ap[G7-9]pears
[Cmaj9]But it's just a crazy [Dm9]game [Cmaj9]when it ends it [Cm9]ends in t[F7-9]ears
[Bbmaj7]Darling have a h[Eb6]eart, don't let one mistake keep [Bbmaj7]us apart[Bb7]
[Bb9]I'm not [Ebmaj7]meant to live a[D7-9]lone turn this h[Gm7]ouse into a [Fm7]home
[Bb7-9]When I c[Ebmaj7]limb the stair and turn the [Cm7]key Oh please be there s[Cm7]till[(F] in[Bass)]
[Bbmaj7]love with me.
