Joe Henry – Homecoming tab
HOMECOMING Joe Henry I find that playing the Dm as a bar chord sounds best and using a combination of a power and bar chord for the C works best. Also, if your playing solo and want to try to add some of the bass line then right before you switch from the Dm to a C lift up your so you play A-D-A-D and move right into the C chord. Good luck, this is a great song that needs to be played more often. any futher comments please send to firstname.lastname@example.org Dm C I guess I should've written, Dad, to let you know that I was coming Dm - C home Dm I've been gone so many years, I didn't realize you had a phone I saw your cattle coming in, boy they're looking mighty fat and slick I saw Fred at the service station, told me that his wife is awful sick You heard my record on the radio, oh, well it's just another song But I've got a hit recorded and it'll be out on the market 'fore too long I got this ring in Mexico, no, it didn't cost me quite a bunch When you're in the business that I'm in, the people call it puttin' up a front I know I've lost a little weight, I guess I am looking kind of pale If you didn't know me better, Dad, you'd think that I'd just gotten out of jail No, we don't ever call them beer joints, night clubs are the places that I work You meet a lot of people there, but no, there ain't much chance of gettin' hurt I'm sorry that I couldn't be there with you all when Momma passed away I was on the road and when they came and told me it was just too late I drove by the grave to see her, boy, that really is a pretty stone I'm glad that Fred and Jan are here, it's better than you being here alone Well I knew you's gonna ask me who the lady is that's sleeping in the car That's just a girl who works for me and, man, she plays a pretty mean guitar We worked in San Antone last night, she didn't even have the time to dress She drove me down from Nashville and to tell the truth I guess she needs the rest Well, Dad, I gotta go, we got a dance to work in Cartersville tonight Let me take your number down, I'll call you, and I promise you I'll write Now you be good and don't be chasin' all those pretty women that you know
