Verse:
    Bb
I'm sitting in the railway station.
      Bbmaj7                  Bb7    G
Got a ticket for my destination, mmmm
Cm                               Ab
On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand.
    Bb                                  F7               Bb
And ev'ry stop is neatly planned for a poet and one-man band.

Chorus:
         Eb            Bb
Homeward bound,  wish I was,
         Eb
Homeward bound,
Bb             Bbsus4
Home where my thought's escaping
Bb             Bbsus4
Home where my music's playing,
Bb             Bbsus4
Home where my love lays waiting
F           Bb
Silently for me.

Verse:
Bb
Ev'ry day's an endless stream
   Bbmaj7               Bb7      G
Of cigarettes and magazines, mmmm
    Cm                                  Ab
And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories
    Bb                             F7                       Bb
And ev'ry stranger's face I see reminds me that I long to be,

Chorus:
         Eb            Bb
Homeward bound,  wish I was,
         Eb
Homeward bound,
Bb             Bbsus4
Home where my thought's escaping
Bb             Bbsus4
Home where my music's playing,
Bb             Bbsus4
Home where my love lays waiting
F           Bb
Silently for me.

Verse:
  Bb
Tonight I'll sing my songs again,
     Bbmaj7                 Bb7     G
I'll play the game and pretend, mmmm
    Cm                              Ab
But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity
     Bb                      F7                      Bb
Like emptiness in harmony I need someone to comfort me.

Chorus:
         Eb            Bb
Homeward bound,  wish I was,
         Eb
Homeward bound,
Bb             Bbsus4
Home where my thought's escaping
Bb             Bbsus4
Home where my music's playing,
Bb             Bbsus4
Home where my love lays waiting
F           Bb
Silently for me.

Outro:
Bbmaj7       Bb7       Bb
  Silently for me.

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.
