A I'm sitting in the railway station. E7 A7 F Got a ticket for my destination, mmmm C G On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand. A E7 A And ev'ry stop is neatly planned for a poet and one-man band. Chorus: D A Homeward bound, wish I was, D Homeward bound, A E7 Home where my thought's escaping A E7 Home where my music's playing, A E7 Home where my love lays waiting E A Silently for me. A Ev'ry day's an endless stream E7 A7 F Of cigarettes and magazines, mmmm C G And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories A E7 A And ev'ry stranger's face I see reminds me that I long to be, Repeat chorus A Tonight I'll sing my songs again, E7 A7 F I'll play the game and pretend, mmmm C G But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity A E7 A Like emptiness in harmony I need someone to comfort me. Repeat chorus E7 A7 A Silently for me.
