Intro:
    D
    G D G Em7 D 

D
Got a call from an old friend
              G
We used to be real close
A                                   D   G G
Said he couldn't go on the American way
D
Closed the shop, sold the house
                       G
Bought a ticket to the West Coast
A                                         D
Now he gives them a stand-up routine in L.A.

Interlude:

    G D G Em7 D 

Chorus:
D                                          G
I don't need you to worry for me cause I'm alright
A                                             D    G D G Em7
I don't want you to tell me it's time to come home
D                                          G      G D Em7 D
I don't care what you say anymore, this is my life
A                                         Bm
Go ahead with your own life, and leave me alone
                                   Gb7
I never said you had to offer me a second chance
D7                             E
I never said I was a victim of circumstance
G         D     Gb7          Bm
I still belong, don't get me wrong
E7          E7
And you can speak your mind
    G   A  G  A
But not on my time


D                                             G            G D Em7 D
They will tell you you can't sleep alone in a strange place
A                                                   D   G D G Em7
Then they'll tell you you can't sleep with somebody else
D                                     G
But sooner or later you sleep in your own space
A                                         D 
Either way it's okay you wake up with yourself

A                                             D
I don't want you to tell me it's time to come home
D                                          G       G D Em7 D

I still belong, don't get me wrong
E7          E7
And you can speak your mind
    G   A  G  A
But not on my time

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
