This song is so easy I’m not even going to put the chords in chart form.  
If you think you’re ready to play this song, then you really should know these 
chords already:

Chords:	F	Am	G	C	D	D(sus)

In the first verse, when moving from F to Am, try hammering onto the Am quickly 
then moving immediately to the G chord.  
For all following verses, try to use a more basic strumming pattern.

The only tricky part is knowing when to and when not to sing.

Am G F That you never called home
