WITHIN A MILE OF HOME - Flogging Molly

Tabbed by: Pakistanieagle77
Tuning: Standard
Intro: (Electric, med distortion)
Play using F barre and open C chord shapes
[F] [C] [F] [C] [F] [C] [G5]  

[D] [G] [A] 
[D] [G] [A] 
Dust[D] falls on the emp[G]ty halls of my old[A] school
Where the [D]memories fade like the [G]casualty, a [A]forgotten fool
Now [D]wide-eyed has [G]become the blind of [A]spoken rule
As [D]equal only deep is now the[A] word
The [G]lesson's not the answer you once[A] heard
"Don't turn your [D]back on me, don't [A]ever let me [G]down"
She said, "I [D]picked you up each [A]time before you [G]hit the ground
Your selfish [D]face is now [A]erased when someone [G]mentions you
And the [D]darkness that you left is ove[A]rstepped aside
Will [G]disappear in clouds, the sun[A] arrives
Within a mi[D]le of [G]home [A] within a mile of hom[D]e"[G] [A]
Oh [D]worry, oh my [G]worry has it [A]been that long?
The [D]whistle keeps on [G]blowing but the [A]chill's all gone
His empty [D]frame cannot ex[G]plain, there's nothing [A]left inside
So [D]sing to me a song from[A] yesterday
When [G]laughter filled the tears that we now [A]make
"Don't turn your [D]back on me, don't [A]ever let me [G]down"
She said, "I [D]picked you up each [A]time before you [G]hit the ground
Your selfish [D]face is now e[A]rased when someone [G]mentions you
If [D]only you had seen what I no[A]w see
And [G]turned the corner where you would of[A] been
Within a mi[D]le [G]of h[A]ome within a mile of home[D]"[G] [A]
