[Verse 1:]

(no chord)
I've got these letters tattooed on my arm
That remind me each second of where I come from
        C#m                             B     E
And the long hard road to guide me back home

E
Back to my mama who raised me up right
A
And back to my lady I held every night
C#m                                 B
It's a long hard road trying to get home
          C#m              B
I've been gone now for too long

[Chorus:]
                  E
I'm not trying to stop a hurricane
E                 A
I'm not trying to shake the ground below
A                  C#m    B                   A 
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home

                  E
I'm not trying to part the ocean waves
E                   A
I'm not trying to overthrow the throne
A                  C#m    B                   A
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home
A                      E
I'm just trying to get home

[Verse 2:]

E                   
I've got this image engraved in my mind
     A
Of a light that I had in a whole different time
         C#m                                  B
It still breathes and lives at the end of the road

          E
I've seen mountains and valleys through my missing days
      A
But I never once parted with how you begged me to stay
       C#m                         B                       A
I will run down that long hard and treacherous road to get home

[Chorus:]

E
I'm not trying to stop a hurricane
A
I'm not trying to shake the ground below
                   C#m    B                   A 
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home

                  E
I'm not trying to part the ocean waves
E                   A
I'm not trying to overthrow the throne
A                  C#m    B                   A
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home
A                      E
I'm just trying to get home

[Bridge:]

(no chord)
I've been gone for so long
But my heart it carries on
As it pounds like a drum
On my journey back home

E
I've been gone for so long
E
But my heart it carries on
C#m
I won't give up

[Chorus:]

                  E
I'm not trying to stop a hurricane
E                 A
I'm not trying to shake the ground below
A                  C#m    B                   A 
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home

A                 E
I'm not trying to part the ocean waves
E                   A
I'm not trying to overthrow the throne
A                  C#m    B                   A
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home
A                      E
I'm just trying to get home

E
I'm just trying to get home [X2]
