during the verses while playing D, Frank hammers on his pinky to make Dsus4, do 
this for a more accurate sound. 
 
intro: Dsus4, Em7, G  x4  (no G last time)

Dsus2 Em7 GLet me tell you all a little story of the things I've found,
D Em7 GHanging out and drinking with my friends in the cathedral grounds,
D Em7 GAnd later dodging drunks as we dance along Jewry Street,
Dsus2 Em7 G D (hammer on)Em7 D As we wander up town to the railway our friends to meet,
Dsus4 Em7There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
G The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
Dsus4 Em7And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
G DI'm a Wessex Boy and when I'm here I'm home

(chords that you can play instead are: Dsus4, Em7, G x4)
Dsus2 Em7 GLet me tell you all a little story of the things I've lost,
D Em7 GHuddling for warmth on the top step of the Buttercross,
D Em7 GSitting on the benches by the bridges at the riverside,
Dsus2 Em7 GOf counting down the hours for the buses cause I missed my ride
Dsus4 Em7There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
G The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
Dsus4 Em7And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
G Bm I'm a Wessex Boy, a Wessex boy and when I'm here I'm home
G Em7 DAnd one day I will hear this song anonymous and sweet,
Bm G Em7 D Ringing out from a buskers guitar on the ancient city streets,
Bm G Em7 D I'll pause a while and smile before I continue on alone,
Em7 GAnd somebody else will sing the words and I'll feel like I'm home
the 0's here are played fast and quietly (you could probably go without them)

Dsus4 Em7There's something about hometowns you never can escape
G The triumphs and the tragedies, the tawdry little fates
Dsus4 Em7The welling of nostalgia, the feeling kinda strange
G Cause despite all the little changes, this place still feels the same
Dsus4 Em7There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
G The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
Dsus4 Em7And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
G DI'm a Wessex Boy, a Wessex boy and when I'm here I'm home
