Interpretation by Stephen OHora

Its played with some flourishes on the G chord at the end of each line, the G-C is like:

|----3---3--3---3--3-|
|--------------------|
|--------------------|
|-----------2------2-|
|----2------3------3-|
|-3--3---3------3----|

While on the G its played much like this:

|----3---3--3---3--3-|
|--------1------1----|
|--------------------|
|--------------------|
|----2---------------|
|-3--3---3--3---3--3-|
Its easy to pick up when you listen to the song to get the rhythm right.

F                C        G    -     C
Right around the corner down by the canyon
F       C                 G
I met a man who lost his way
F       C           G   -  C
Said Im born the son of a sailor
F         C               G
Who never showed me his face
F       C           G      -     C 
Daddys gone and my momma met her maker
F       C              G
Oh to hell with that place
F         C            F          C
Quit your talking, your sideways walking
F       C              G
Time to find another path to take
F       C              F         C
Quit your whining your bloodshot crying
F               C              G
Fake it like your dying never pace
F-C       F-C
Just go home
        F               C   G 
Ohhh, you need you some home
   F        C       G
you need you some home

F               C                      G
Her name was Peggy Sue and her Daddy hung the moon
F       C              G
In her eyes he could no wrong
F                C        G           -                C
Then he started drinking like theres a message in the bottle
F               C              G
Now Daddys painting Peggy black and blue
F               C
She closes her eyes
F               C
Through the heroes demise
F               C          G
Holds to a hope beyond the sky
F         C
Takes a breath
F                     C
A weight comes off her chest
F       C                      G
Find a way to weather through the storm

Chorus
C
She cried out 
Ooooohhhh 
F       C              G
I love (need) me some home
                                F       C              G
I need me some home

*muted with palm across strings*
F       C              G
Found myself on a train to California 
F       C   G
25 years of age
F          C                           G (one strum down)
Sat beside me was a lovely rose a wanderer
F       C              G
Two is always better they say
F               C
We made our plans
F               C
Gave me her hand
F               C              G
We aint got no time for looking back
F               C
I was bruised and beaten
F               C
Lost for many reasons
F               C              G
Only love will make you understand

Chorus
(G)                             F      C      G
Ooooohhhh I love me some home
                        F       C      G
I love me some home
F       C      G
F       C      G-C

F                       C
We are all bruised and beaten
F                       C
Lost on account of many reasons
F               C              G
Only love will make you understand
(G)                             F      C      G
Ooooohhhh I love me some home
                        F       C      G
I love me some home
