 1st Verse
       A                           Amaj7 
I set out on a great adventure,
                      F#m                                       E 
The day my Father started leading me home,
                       D                                                 D/C# 
Said theres gonna be mountains to climb,
                                  Bm                            A
And valleys were gonna go through.

           A                       Amaj7
But I had no way of knowing,
                 F#m                                   E 
Just how hard this journey could be,
Cause the valleys are deeper
               D/C#                                    Bm         Bm slide to C#m momentarily
And the mountains are steeper than I ever would have dreamed

D                                 F#m
    But I know were gonna make it,
D                                  F#m     E
    And I know were gonna get there soon
D                             F#m                                        Esus2      Emaj9
    And I know sometimes it seems like were going the wrong way
D                              Dm (strum Dm once)
    But its just the long way home

Turn around 
A   Amaj7   F#m   D

2nd Verse
A   Amaj7   F#m   E   D   D/C#   Bm   Bm (A)
Some rocks on my shoes,
Fears I wish I could lose,
That make the mountains so hard to climb,
And my heart gets so heavy with the weight of the world sometimes.
Theres a bag of regret,
Shouldve beens and not yets,
That keep on dragging around,
And I can hardly wait till the day I get to lay them all down.

D  F#m  D   F#m   E   D F#m   Esus2   Emaj9   D   Dm
Well I know that day is coming
And I know its gonna be here soon
And I know I wont turn back even if the whole world 
Says Im doing the wrong way
Cause its just a long way home

Bm               C#m                            C#m 
       When we cant take another step,
                           F#m                    E                        D
The Father will pick us up and carry us in His arms,
                                      Bm                                  C#m
        And even on the best days, He says to remember were not home yet,
                       Esus2                    Emaj9
So dont get too comfortable,
                      D                         Dm (strum once)
Cause really all were is just pilgrims passing through.
