Intro -2x-:  F  C  Dm  Am  B  F  C


 F        C             Dm                 Am
a lonely road, crossed another cold state line
B                F            C
Miles away from those I love purpose hard to find
F          C           Dm                 Am
While I recall all the words you spoke to me
      B                  F
Can't help but wish that I was there
      C
Back where I'd love to be, oh yeah


F    C       Dm          C
Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
    B                      F
to hold her when I'm not around,
          C
when I'm much too far away
F        C         Dm           C
We all need that person who can be true to you
       B               F
But I left her when I found her
    C
And now I wish I'd stayed
            B             C
’Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired
                  Dm  C  B
I'm missing you again oh no
           F
Once again


F                C          Dm              Am
There's nothing here for me on this barren road
        B                         F
There's no one here while the city sleeps
      C
and all the shops are closed
F               C            Dm                 Am
Can't help but think of the times I've had with you
B                 F              C
Pictures and some memories will have to help me through, oh yeah


F    C        Dm           C
Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
     B                        F
to hold her when I'm not around,
          C
when I'm much too far away
F      C         Dm             C
We all need that person who can be true to you
   B               F
I left her when I found her
    C         
And now I wish I'd stayed
           B              C
’Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired
                 Dm   C  B
I'm missing you again oh no
          F
Once again


Dm           B               F
Some search, never finding a way
Dm         B             F
Before long, they waste away
Dm         B                       F
I found you, something told me to stay
Dm     B               F
I gave in, to selfish ways
Gm                         C
And how I miss someone to hold

when hope begins to fade...
F         C             Dm                 Am
a lonely road, crossed another cold state line
B               F            C
Miles away from those I love purpose hard to find


F     C      Dm            C
Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
    B                F
to hold her when I'm not around,
         C
when I'm much too far away
F      C        Dm             C
We all need the person who can be true to you
    B             F
I left her when I found her
    C
And now I wish I'd stayed
           B              C
’Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired
                  Dm  C  B
I'm missing you again oh no
            F
Once again

  1. Some of those C chords sounds out of place… “‘Cause I’m lonely and I’m tired” sounds better Bb to F instead of Bb to C, for instance. Others I can’t put my finger on though

  2. Wolfie101 lover

    Instead of B it should be Bb. It sounds way better and more like the song itself

  3. How do strumming Dear god??

  4. Hello! Just thought I’d add something. B’s should be Bb’s instead, it sounds more in tune to me. Also, in the chorus, for “missing you again” I think adding in an A in the beginning of the verse (making the chords A,Dm,C,Bb) makes a big difference. And after “again” (Bb) try playing a Bbm.

    • Yeah, i thought something missing on that chorus too. But instead adding A, it sound better with A7 i think. Tou should try it

    • Yeah, i tought so. Some notes are missing on that chorus. But instead adding A, i prefer using A7. I think it sound more make sense.

  5. pierre-luct

    I think Bm works

    It should be Bb not B!

  7. andi2216

    It’s not B.. it’s B-flat.
