Take the Long Way Home  Supertramp

Take the Long Way Home - Supertramp
Intro: [Eb] [Bb] [C] [Eb] [Bb] [C] [Eb] [Bb] [C] x2
[Eb] So you think you're a [Bb] Romeo,
[F] Playing a part in a [C] picture-show.
Take the [Bb] long way home, [F] take the [C] long way home.
[Eb] 'Cause you're the joke of the [Bb] neighborhood,
[F] Why should you care if you're [C] feeling good.
Take the [Bb] long way home, [F] take the [C] long way home.
[Em] But there are times that you [Em7] feel you're part of the [Am] scenery, [Am7]
All the [F] greenery, [Dm] is comin' [Bb] down, [F] boy.
[G] And then your wife seems to [Em7] think you're part of the [Am] furniture, [Am7]
Oh, it's pe- [F] culiar, [Dm] she used to [Bb] be [F] so [G] nice.
[Eb] When lonely days turn to [Bb] lonely nights,
[F] You take a trip to the [C] city lights.
And take the [Bb] long way home, [F] take the [C] long way home.
[Eb] You never see what you [Bb] want to see,
[F] Forever playing to the [C] gallery.
You take the [Bb] long way home, [F] take the [C] long way home.
[Em] And when you're up on the [Em7] stage, it's so un- [Am] believable, [Am7]
Unfor- [F] gettable, [Dm] how they a- [Bb] dore [F] you,
[G] But then your wife seems to [Em7] think you're losing your [Am] sanity, [Am7]
Oh, cal- [F] amity, is there [Bb] no [F] way [G] out?
Solo: (Intro)
[Em] Does it feel that your [Em7] life's become a cat- [Am] astrophe? [Am7]
Oh, it [F] has to be, [Dm] for you to [Bb] grow, [F] boy.
[G] When you look through the [Em7] years and see what you [Am] could have been, [Am7]
Oh, what you [F] might have been, [Dm] if you'd [Bb] had [F] more [G] time.
[Eb] So, when the day comes to [Bb] settle down,
[F] Who's to blame if you're [C] not around?
You took the [Bb] long way home, [F] you took the [C] long way home,
You took the [Bb] long way home, [F] you took the [C] long way home. (repeat & fade)

The song is written in 4/4 most of the chord changes are on 1st and 3rd beats but the chords at the end of fraze last for a whole bar.

the Am7 at "Part of the scenery"
Try playing the low G with your pinky. it makes a nice walk down to the F.

christopaul (report)

The Eb chord should be a Cm7.It's almost the same chord but you want the C on the A string. The F on Take the long way home should be left out and play the Bb and the C for a full bar each.
