** Capo on 2nd fret - All chords are in relation to the capo **

Intro: D   D

D                        A
I was pourin' coffee for table number one

  Bm                A        G
I couldn't help but hear him what was going on

D                          A
It got my attention when I heard a young man's voice

       Bm              A                G
Saying sheriff I'll be going now if its alright with you boys

      A                             Bm
Those years I spent in prison stole to much time from me

        G             D/F#   Em            A
I won't waste another minute if I'm really free


--Chorus--
          G                                     D
I'm goin' home my family's waitin' for me Goin' home


I'm amazed that they still love me

        Bm              A                 G      A
They forgive me for the bitter seeds I've sown

Bm                A            G
Heaven knows I've been away to long

   A             D       G     A
So now I'm going home....

D                          A
A burger and a special for table number eight

      Bm             A            G
I was bustin' number seven when I heard her young heart break

D                                  A
He told her it was over they could never meet again

        Bm               A               G
That he found a taste of courage twisted on his wedding band

    A                            Bm
Her tears began to fall but they could not touch his heart

  G                  D/F#             Em                 A
I heard him say "I'm sorry But it was all wrong from the start"


--Chorus--
          G                                     D
I'm goin' home my family's waitin' for me Goin' home


I'm amazed that they still love me

        Bm              A                 G      A
They forgive me for the bitter seeds I've sown

Bm                A            G
Heaven knows I've been away to long

   A             D
So now I'm going home....


          A                              Bm
There's a million other stories from the Halfway Home Cafe

       A                             Bm               A
It's a never ending saga and they're played out every day


    D                           A
But this one's finally over the foods all put away

        Bm                A            G  
And the coffee pot stands empty at the Halfway Home Cafe

    D                     A
But over in the corner at table number three

       Bm           A               G
Sits a father and a runaway well it looks that way to me

        A                               Bm
I said "I hate to interrupt you but its really gettin' late"

    G                    D/F#             Em            A
The young girl looked up smilin she said "Mister that's ok"


--Chorus--
          G                                     D
I'm goin' home my family's waitin' for me Goin' home


I'm amazed that they still love me

        Bm              A                 G      A
They forgive me for the bitter seeds I've sown

Bm                A            G
Heaven knows I've been away to long

   A             G
So now I'm going home....

A                  D
Hhmmm... I'm goin' home
