Im Going Home
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
 
Intro: G - C - G - C - G - C -  G - C
G                                      C      G                                      C
I left my home by the ocean, I left my love by the sea,
G                                              C         G          D
Dreaming I could sing my songs in the city...
G                                          C         G                                         C
I thought the streets of London, would be paved with gold,
                G                                  C
But the only gold was in the setting sun,
                    D                              G
And these city nights are so cold.
                  D                                                     G
And you know that feeling when you've been too long,
                    D7
And you wanna go home and it's so strong,
 
G                  C      G                   C
I'm going home, I'm going home,
               G (bass:#F)                         Em   (bass: D)
Oh the leaves are falling and the wind is calling
        C                D       G   D7
And I must get on the road,
G                 C      G                    C
You'll be alone, you'll be alone,
                        G (bass:#F)                            Em   (bass: D)
But if you're crying to the rhythm of the falling rain,
        C       D                    G
It's alright, I'm on my way,
 
G                  C      G                   C
I'm going home, I'm going home, yeah...
G - C - G - C
G                          C
Jilly she's got a smile in her eye,
G                                          C
And a bed just right for two,
G                              C      G               D
Silly how much I love her, but I do,
G                                  C
Sunny days will be here again,
G                                      C
She whispered in my ear,
                        G                                                        C
Oh Lord it's funny how much I've missed the country rain,
                 D                         G
That's a sound I love to hear...
             D                                           G
And I know that feeling and I've been too long,
            D7
And I wanna go home and it's so strong,
G                  C     G                   C
I'm going home, I'm going home,
                G (bass: #F)                       Em (bass: D)
Oh the leaves are falling and the wind is calling
        C              D         G  D7
And I must get on the road,
G                  C    G                  C
You'll be alone, you'll be alone,
                        G (bass: #F)                            Em (bass: D)
But if you're crying to the rhythm of the falling rain,
        C       D                    G
It's alright, I'm on the way,
G                  C      G                    C
I'm going home, I'm going home, yea...
G - C - G - C
...
Oh hold on darling, I'm going home,
I'm on the way, I'm going home,
I'm going home, Hold on darling...
