Homeward Bound Paul Simon
I'm [G]sitting in a railway station,
Got a [Bm]ticket for my [F]desti-[E]nation[E7].
[Am]On a tour of one night stands,
My [F]suitcase and guitar in hand,
And [G]every stop is neatly planned
For a poet and a one man band.
I wish I [G]was homeward [C]bound,
[G]Home, where my [C]thoughts are 'scaping,
[G]Home, where my [C]music's playing,
[G]Home, where my [Am]love lies waiting [Am7]silently for [D]me.
Everyday's an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines.
And each town looks the same to me,
The movies and the factories,
And every stranger's face I see
Reminds me that I long to be...
Tonight I'll sing my songs again,
I'll play the game and pretend,
But all my words come back to me
In shades of mediocrity,
Like emptiness in harmony,
I need someone to comfort me.

Capo 3 is the same key as the album on the Best of S&G
