(Capo on 4)

Intro.:  |(G)(D)|(Em)(C)| x 2

(G) Lookin' out of my (D)window pane, (Em) tears mingling (C)with the rain
(G) I'm so lonesome, (D)I could cry just (Em)like old (C)Hank
(G) Staring down on the (D)city street, (Em) feeling empty and (C)incomplete
(G) There's a place I (D)need to be to (Em)fill my (C)tank

A (C)place I can go where I can be free where I can be happy and just --- be me

(G) Home, (D) where the (Em)warm winds blowing and the (C)rivers flowing a-(G)long (D)
Like a (Em)lazy bum in the (C)mid-day sun
And I've (G) gone (D) (Em)fishin' with my pole at the (C)fishin' hole
Where (C)I can lay down my heavy load, and (D)know that I am always --- welcome

Solo:  |(G)Home (D)|(Em)(C)|

(G) I left home I was (D)17, (Em) I had a lot of am-(C)bitious dreams
(G) See a lot of those (D)dreams come true, I've (Em)had good (C)luck
(G) I'm not complaining (D)that's for sure, (Em) I got a lot to be (C)thankful for
(G)One of those things is the (D)magic door that (Em) opens (C)up

(C)Back to the time when I was a kid to the sound of the crickets and the Carry Dees

It's called (G) home (D) on the (Em)front porch swinging and (C)fern pots hanging
(G) Home (D) with the (Em)church bells ringing and (C)voices singing
(G) Old (D)songs that's (Em)in my mind like a (C)stitch in time
Where the (C)tea is sweet and the love's complete (D)for me, I wanna go

Solo:  |(G) Home (D)|(Em)(C)|

(Am) I often think about (G)where I (D)have been
(Am)Where I am going and (C)lots a-(D)bout when I think about

(G) Home, (D) where the (Em)soul find comfort and the (C)heart find pleasure
(G) Home, (D) where the (Em)depths of love (C)is hard to measure
It's (G) home, (D) I (Em)hear you callin', I (C)hear you callin'
I'll (C)never be lost as long as I know there's a (D)place like that where I can go

Where (C)I can restore my weary soul on the (D)mountain slopes of the south "Blue Smoke"

Of (G)home, (D) (Em) (C) home sweet (G) (D) home (Em) (C)

(G) Home (D) (Em)back to the hills of the (C)Whip-poor-wills
(G) Home (D) with the (Em)fire flies blinking and the (C)night stars twinklin'
(G) Home, (D) honeysuckle vine and (Em)musky fine (C)wine at
(G) Home, (D) where the (Em)ginseng grows in the (C)shady groves of
(G) Home, (D) with (Em)family and friends and (C)joy that never end
(G) Home, (D) there's (Em)no place like (C)it, no place like it, (G)home -----

Thanks for the suggestion. I fixed the line.

It is 'Katydids' not Carry Dees. They are a type of bush cricket common in the southern states
