||CHORDS||


D               Em
Side of the road, I stopped and
G                       A7
Picked up the pieces of your car
D                 Em
You were just standing, speechless
G                      A7
Knowing you'd never travel far

G               A7                D           G/B
That's what you do when someone's given up on you
G                 A7              D
And that's when I knew that I was giving up and giving in
G             A7
That's when I knew where I was
G             A7              D
That's when I knew that I was home

D            Em            G
Stuck in the middle of the road
                        A7
For better or worse, we compromise
D            Em
You may have won my hand, dear
G                    A7
But it was the consolation prize

G             A7              D              G/B
That's when I knew that I was running out on you
G               A7              D
That's what you do when time is running out and running down
G             A7
That's when I knew where I was
G             A7              D
That's when I knew that I was home

C#m            A
Where does the heart reside
G#                    C#m    A  G#
If not where I lay my head?
C#m               A
I could run but I'm petrified
G#                 C#m
And choose this instead
G#          F#    A
Again and again


||SOLO||
You can play this with a pick or fingerstyle if you choose. Both methods sound excellent.

D          Em
End of the road I'm running
G                         A7
And look back to survey where I'd been
D            Em
Someday I'll write and ask you
G                    A7
If you could imagine what I'd seen

G               A7               D               G/B
How could you think that I could turn my back on you?
G           A7                  D
How did you think this would be turning out? And turning 'round
G            A7
What could I do but call you?
G            A7              D
What could I do to call this home?

G             A7
That's when I knew where I was
G             A7              D
That's when I knew that I was home
