Verse 1:
Bb
Well I stumbled in the darkness
Bb
I'm lost and alone
Bb
Though I said I'd go before us
Bb		      Gm
And show the way back home
Gm	Eb	  Bb
There a light up ahead
Bb		     Eb	  
I can't hold on very long
Bb			     F  		      Bb
Forgive me pretty baby but I always take the long way home

Verse 2:
Bb
Money's just something you throw
Bb
Off the back of a train
Bb
Got a head full of lightning
Bb	      Gm
a hat full of rain
Gm    Eb	  Bb
And I know that I said
Bb		Eb	
I'd never do it again
Bb				 F			  Bb
And I love you pretty baby but I always take the long way home

I put food on the table

And roof overhead

But I'd trade it all tomorrow

For the highway instead

Watch your back, keep your eyes shut tight

One thing for sure pretty baby I always take the long way home

Let's go out past the party lights

Where we can finally be alone
