@SONG: * I'M GOIN' HOME
(tabbed by randell@heinous.music.uiowa.edu,

and Paul Hutchinson )
Intro: |E |G#m |F#m |E | x3 (Band in 2nd time)
[E] Mama p[G#m]lease don't go
Won't you [F#m]stay for [E]one more day
I've been your boy for so long now
There's so much I, I still have to say
The sky ripped open and I held my heart in my hand
Like a soldier on his very last day
Cried myself to sleep that night
And I listened as I heard the angels sing, Sha la la
[E] Sha la [B]la la, sha la [D]la la, I'm goin [A]home
Sha la la la, la la la la, I'm goin home
Something inside of me makes me scream
How could God take you from a little boy?
He'll be all right he's by my side
He's not a little boy, he's my pride and joy, Sha la la la
Sha la la la, sha la la la, I'm goin home
Sha la la la, la la la la, I'm goin home
Solo: (Same chords as half a verse)
Summer on the radio }
When the phone rang, and it was Jeannette }- Without guitars
Saying, "Boy, we got to let her go" }
I beg, "No, no not yet" }
You left six of us to fend for ourselves
Guess it's just part of someone's master plan
We'll see you left cause your my best friend
You were lighter then and I smiled when the angels sang sha la la la
Chorus: (Repeat to fade)
Chords: E-022100 G#m-466444 F#m-244222 B-x24442 D-x00232
NB: Although I think the chord formations shown above are those used on the
recording, if you are playing this by yourself you can make the chorus
sound really big by using B-799800 D-x50770. :-)
