Lyrics

Intro

Am ... F C G C (repeat)

Verse

F C There are few things pure in this world anymore G C And home is one of the few We'd have a drink outside, maybe run and hide If we saw a couple men in blue But for me, its so damn easy to see That your people are the people at home Well I've been away, but now I'm back today And there ain't no place I'd rather go

Chorus

C G Am I feel home... when I see the faces that remember my own I feel home... when I'm chillin' outside with the people I know I feel home... and that's just what I feel Home to me is reality, and all I need is something real Feelin' alright, headin' out tonight Maybe off to a dark driveway I say now, some feel bored and some are lookin' for more But we all just decide to stay We got nothing to do, but when I look at you I see something that I know and love And with the crack of a smile, we all stay a while We know from home there ain't nothing above Well in the end, we can all call a friend Well, its something that's known as true And in a thousand years and a thousand tears I come findin' my original crew Cause for me, throughout eternity There's someplace we're welcome to go I said its, something free that means a lot to me When I'm with my friends, I feel home I feel home... when I see the faces that remember my own I feel home... when I'm chillin outside with the people I know I feel home... and that's just what I feel Home to me is reality, and all I need is something real Home to me is reality, and all I need is something real I feel home-------- (instrumental chorus w/ solo to end)

About

My name is David Potsiadlo, and I created Songnotes to share my collection of guitar tabs, chords, and lyrics for my favorite songs.

Since I started playing guitar over 10 years ago, I've often been frustrated by the preponderance of mediocre and incomplete song tabs littered across the internet. To combat this, I started keeping my own collection of notes for each song I learn -- always taking the extra time to make sure accuracy and completeness are never compromised. Years later, my collection grew to the point where I knew I had to share it online with fellow aspiring musicians.

In December 2012, I began designing & developing a website that became Songnotes. Here, I share my personal collection of hand-crafted music notation with all those online. I hope you enjoy.
