Then last verse, then chorus. What do you think they would say If I stood up and I walked away Nobody here really understands me, and so I'll wave goodbye , I'm fine, I'm fine Tones of home Said you don't like the way I'm living Tones of home, Tones of home And so I'll wave goodbye I'm flyin, I'm flyin home And I always thought this would be The land of milk and honey Oh but I come to find out that its all hate and money And there's a canopy of greed holding me down -chorus- See I'm so high to you, so I'll fade away I said you're on your own Your mom and daddy said, and your sister said, and your brother is saying Everybody, is saying everybody, is saying I, eye, god I gotta go! All my freinds patronize me and they say yo hey boy have you found what you're looking for It seems they don't really know me cause its here, and its what they can't see.... -chorus- | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note =============================================================================
