EVERYBODY'S WAITING (FOR SOMEONE TO COME HOME)
(by Amy Ray)
----------------------------------------------
[each chord is about half a measure; D11=554030]
 
INTRO:
 
[This is the exact pattern for the first four measures; it varies some
 through the song.  Sometimes there's a quick hammer-on from 0 to 2 on
 the A string right before a low E at the beginning of Em measures.]
 
  Em               C(9)  D11        Em               C(9)  D11

Em            Em            C             D11       Em  Em  C  D11
  Through the wind and the rain I hear my mother's cry
    Em   Em                C        D11                Em      Em      C D11
She says, I know my baby's out there, I just couldn't bear to ask her why
Em         Em            C    D11   Em             Em        C   D11
  From my womb into the world, lord, I wish the child would call
Em             Em            C     D11    Em       Em      C   D11
  You know I'm needing some company, she makes my life so full
D11    D11         C   C   D11             D11       C      C
       Take my advice,       go ahead and live your own life
D11     D11     D11 [tacet]                Em   Em   C   D11
  Everybody's waiting for someone to come home
 
Like the pharaoh waits for the sand
This world is burning with the tension of human hands
Waiting to be cleansed, waiting for their ace of spades
They say, I sure hope he's coming 'cause I feel like I've just been saved
Take my advice, go ahead and live while you're alive
And everybody's waiting for someone to come home
 
[guitar solo:  Em  Em  C(9)  D11 ]
 
Em  Em       C       C         D11   D11   D11   D11    Em
    Come to me and cleanse my soul  (I'm free,   I'm free)
Em    C       C      D11   D11         D11     D11    Em
Only with you am I whole   (Can't you see that I am me)
Em       C       C      D11    D11      D11     D11     Em   Em  C  D11
I'll be waiting by the window (I'll be heading for the door)
 
I was driving down Highway 85, yeah
Had to pull off the road just to hear my radio coming in clearer
Lord, this life's so full [???], I said, why do we ask for more?
Why we waitin' for the man to come, we forgot what he's comin' for
Won't you take my advice, go ahead and live while you're alive
And everybody's waiting for someone to come home
 
Em  Em       C      D11     Em    Em  C  D11  [etc...]
   (I'll be waiting by the window)
And everybody's waiting for someone to come home
(I'll be waiting by the window)
Everybody's waiting for someone to come home
    Em    Em  C  D11  Em
Come home



TAB:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/i/indigo-girls/8692.html ]
[I'm never exactly sure if I have the right frets for the notes when I
 figure out a guitar solo.  So, as usual, the _notes_ are right, but Emily
 might play the notes on different strings than I've written down.]
 
/ and \ are slides up and down.
T=10; E=11; W=12; F=14.
E~~~~ means bend up a half step (from F# to G), then back down to F#.
The notes in parentheses (7,8,9) are softer.
"45" and "EW" are quick hammer-ons; "EWE" is a quick hammer-on followed
   by a quick pull-off.
