___1st. Verse:

C   G  Am                     G
For so long I was out in the cold,
      C                  Am                  Bm
and I taught myself to believe every story I told.
       Em                   Em/D                   C
It was fun hanging onto the moon, heading into the sun,
                       Cmaj7            G---G7---C/G---Am/G---G
but it's been too long. Now I wanna come home.

But I made my way in the shade, keeping out of the heat.
       Em                      Em/D                    C
It was fun shooting out at the stars, looking into the sun,
                       Cmaj7            G
but it's been too long. Now I wanna come home.

to the memories from afar.
C    F#m                     B7         Em
Home, To the place where the truth lies waiting,
Am    Em           Dm7---G    G---G7---C/G---Am/G---G
we remember who we are.

Everyday I spent trying to prove I could make it alone.

It was fun hanging onto the moon, heading into the sun,

Note:This Transcript stays true to the bass notes played over various chords! With
& songbooks not always providing chord voicing which,(in the beginning) is the way I learned
in search of how to find/figure out the fingering of chords by just seeing/being given 
name of that chord, I got lucky one night while on a roll working with a chord book
contained exactly the information I was looking for along with this information.

"You will find that some of the chords have exactly the same notes as other chords named
For example: C6 contains C-E-G-A, which are the same notes (when inverted) as those
in the Am7 chord (A-C-E-G). In cases like this the correct naming of a chord usually can 
decided by determining the lowest note sounded in the music (the bass note)".

In closing, the bass note doesn't always immediately & neccessarily reveal the chord
played, for example: "C/G" or "Am/G", but it's the information above witch (over the years)
been and continues to be enormously instrumental in letting me know I'm on the right 
when sitting down to figure out chords to songs I work on.

Good luck to all and keep rockin'
