during the verses while playing D, Frank hammers on his pinky to make Dsus4, do 
this for a more accurate sound. 
 
intro: Dsus4, Em7, G  x4  (no G last time)

Dsus2                                       Em7          G
Let me tell you all a little story of the things I've found,
D                                                   Em7      G
Hanging out and drinking with my friends in the cathedral grounds,
D                                           Em7    G
And later dodging drunks as we dance along Jewry Street,
Dsus2                                     Em7      G       D (hammer on)Em7  D 
As we wander up town to the railway our friends to meet,

        Dsus4                           Em7
There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
     G					        	
The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
           Dsus4                              Em7
And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
      G                                 D
I'm a Wessex Boy and when I'm here I'm home

Dsus2                                      Em7          G
Let me tell you all a little story of the things I've lost,
D                                          Em7      G
Huddling for warmth on the top step of the Buttercross,
  D                                         Em7      G
Sitting on the benches by the bridges at the riverside,
Dsus2                                            Em7         G
Of counting down the hours for the buses cause I missed my ride

        Dsus4                           Em7
There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
     G					        	
The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
           Dsus4                              Em7
And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
      G                                               Bm 
I'm a Wessex Boy, a Wessex boy and when I'm here I'm home

                    G              Em7          D
And one day I will hear this song anonymous and sweet,
        Bm           G                   Em7           D     
Ringing out from a buskers guitar on the ancient city streets,
      Bm                G              Em7         D               
I'll pause a while and smile before I continue on alone,
     Em7                                   G
And somebody else will sing the words and I'll feel like I'm home

         Dsus4                        Em7
There's something about hometowns you never can escape 
     G					        	
The triumphs and the tragedies, the tawdry little fates 
      Dsus4                    Em7
The welling of nostalgia, the feeling kinda strange
       G                                    
Cause despite all the little changes, this place still feels the same 

         Dsus4                          Em7
There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
     G					        	
The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
           Dsus4                              Em7
And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
      G                                               D
I'm a Wessex Boy, a Wessex boy and when I'm here I'm home
