    Riff1
I'm sittin' in the railway station, got a ticket for my destination,  mm
Am                                F
On a tour of one night stands, my suitcase and guitar in hand
    G                                   Dsus4      D           G
And every stop is neatly planned, for a poet and a one man band

         C              G             C
Homeward bound, I wish I was homeward bound
G              Fmaj9
Home, where my thought's escaping
G              Fmaj9
Home, where my music's playing
G              Fmaj9             D         G
Home, where my love lies waiting silently for me

Riff1
Everyday's an endless stream of cigarettes and magazines,  mm
    Am                                  F
And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories
    G                             Dsus4           D         G
And every stranger's face I see reminds me that I long to be

         C              G             C
Homeward bound, I wish I was homeward bound
G              Fmaj9
Home, where my thought's escaping
G              Fmaj9
Home, where my music's playing
G              Fmaj9             D         G
Home, where my love lies waiting silently for me

  Riff1
Tonight I'll sing my songs again, I'll play the game and pretend,  mm
    Am                               F
But all my words come back to me, in shades of mediocrity
     G                       Dsus4           D         G
Like emptiness in harmony, I need someone to comfort me

         C              G             C
Homeward bound, I wish I was homeward bound
G              Fmaj9
Home, where my thought's escaping
G              Fmaj9
Home, where my music's playing
G              Fmaj9             D         Riff1                    G
Home, where my love lies waiting silently for me, silently for me
