Intro: Eb Ab Fm7 Bbsus4

Verse:
Eb             Ab
I felt I was spinning my wheels
Fm7                 Bbsus4
Before too long the road was calling
Eb         Ab
I packed everything I own
Fm7                Bbsus4        Eb               Ab
So sure that I was leaving this small town life behind for good
    Fm7          Bbsus4
And not a single tear was falling
Cm              Ab
It took leaving for me to understand
Cm                               Bbsus4          Bb
Sometimes your dreams just aren’t what life has planned

Chorus:
Eb         Ab                 Fm7
Mama said home is where the heart is
       Bbsus4      Eb
When I left that town
                  Ab              Fm7
I made it all the way to West Virginia
                Bbsus4
And that’s where my heart found
Cm      Bb                     Ab
Exactly where I’m supposed to be
          Eb        Fm7
It didn’t take much time
Bb                                        Eb  Ab
   It’s just south of the Mason Dixon line
Fm7                       Bbsus4       Eb
   It’s just south of the Mason Dixon line

Interlude: Eb Ab Fm7 Bbsus4

Verse:
Eb                          Ab
I worked third shift at an all night diner
Fm7                        Bbsus4
Only stayed to save a little money for
Eb             Ab
Enough gas to make it to the east coast
Fm7              Bbsus4
  That’s when I saw the brightest pair of
Eb                      Ab                Fm7 Bbsus4 
Deep blue eyes walking straight into my li--fe
Cm                             Ab
And every night we talked till it became so clear
Cm                            Bbsus4           Bb
And I could feel those dreams inside shifting gears
      Bbsus4           Bb
Cause love brought me here

Chorus:
Eb         Ab                 Fm7
Mama said home is where the heart is
       Bbsus4      Eb
When I left that town
                  Ab              Fm7
I made it all the way to West Virginia
                Bbsus4
And that’s where my heart found
Cm      Bb                     Ab
Exactly where I’m supposed to be
          Eb        Fm7
It didn’t take much time
Bb                                         Eb  Ab
   It’s just south of the Mason Dixon line
Fm7                       Bbsus4       Eb
   It’s just south of the Mason Dixon line

Verse:
Cm                     Ab
And I’m standing in my veil about to say I do
   Fm7               Bb                 Eb   Ebsus2 Eb
As mama smiles with tear drops in her eyes
Cm                         Ab
And then I realize there’s something mama always knew
Db              Ab              Bb
Love is what I really left to find

Chorus:
Eb         Ab                 Fm7
She said  home is where the heart is
       Bbsus4      Eb
When I left that town
                  Ab              Fm7
I made it all the way to West Virginia
                Bbsus4
And that’s where my heart found
Cm      Bb                     Ab
Exactly where I’m supposed to be
          Eb        Fm7
It didn’t take much time
Bb                                         Eb  Ab
   It’s just south of the Mason Dixon line
Fm7                       Bbsus4       Eb
   It’s just south of the Mason Dixon line
