My Home Town  The Wannadies

The Wannadies - My Home Town
Album: The Wannadies (1990)
Transcribed by Jon Malmin (
Tuning: Standard E
Obscure band, obscure song, obscure little town... But anyone who's grown up
in Skelleftea, Sweden, will recognize this as a classic, and a local anthem!
Note that for the chords D/F# and B7/D#, the second note is only the root note,
played by a bassist on the recording. They're entirely optional on guitar.
Oh, and the chord progressions for the verse and chorus never change throughout the song!
Em D/F# G Am (x2)
[Em] [D/F#] [G] [Am] [B7] [B7/D#] [Em] [C]  
[Em]...T[D/F#]his is "my h[G]ome town[Am] song"
[Em]...A "[D/F#]how it's l[G]ike at home[Am] song"
[Em]...S[D/F#]pending h[G]ours a[Am]ll al[B7]one
[B7/D#]Waiting b[Em]y the p[C]hone
[Em]It's [D/F#]hard to say come[G] close[Am]r
[Em]When [D/F#]you're so fa[G]r away[Am]

[C]This is[G] my [D]home town
[Am]This is [G]my home town
[C]This is...[G]
D Em [Same cbord progression as tbe intro]
My hometooown...
I'm dossing up and down these streets,
Where nothing ever seems to change
Where wet green grass meets dust and dirt
That's where love no longer hurts
I've never been a loner,
At least I've never wanted to be one
So whatever you do, remember one thing:
My home is where my heart is and...
This is my home town...
[Repeat tbe intro cbord progression again] 
[Verse one reprise; BASS NOTES ONLY, NOT CBORDS] 
[E]...T[F#]his is "my h[G]ome town s[A]ong"
