   /  Rufus Wainwright  /  I think this song is about how "travel out to find
  /  Hometown Waltz    /  your way home" is a waste of time as there's nothing
 /  Want Two          /  special to find out there. So eventually you'll end
/____________________/  back home with the frustration of that this greener
                       grass isn't to be found anywhere.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/r/rufus-wainwright/102780.html ]
I've tried my best to arrange the chords so an acoustic guitar
is able to stand alone, but since they really aren't well-fit
for guitar, the last chords (Fmmaj7, G,b9...) are really difficult
making sound good. Remember to accentuate/intone the bass notes,
as they're very important for making it sound good.
                                                                  _E_A_D_G_B_E_
