A Place to Call Home - Song Notes

November 28, 2013

Key of C

Dan Original

Most of song is just Dan on Acoustic Guitar - Bill lays in pretty guitar slides - Scott comes in on base during builds and choruses - Logan in on keys for choruses only

 

Choruses are big

Chorus repeats at the end a few times with some final punches of last phrase to finish

I'm a traveler a wayward rambler like an old-time hobo out on the rails.

 

But still you find me and give me shelter and protect me from myself.

 

 And like a fool I run away and you just give me space to roam.

 

And wait there patiently, a place to call home.

 

You know how I am I'll get to drinking and I'll forget to stop.

 

But you don’t judge me. Somehow you love me for all I am and all I'm not.

 

I stumble from another bar. Ashamed I call you on the phone.

 

Babe I need you. I need a place to call home.

 

I'd given up on walk away from everybody that I know.

 

You found me stranded broken hearted abandoned like a stray out on the road.

 

Gave me a gift I can’t forget…a place to call home.

 

I can't stand small talk. That's me in the corner wishing everybody’d just leave me be.

 

But then in you walk and take me by the hand and speak the words for me.

 

And in this loud and crowded room, I'm no longer alone.

 

I'm a lonely soul. You're a place to call home.

 

I'd given up on walk away from everybody that I know.

 

You found me stranded broken hearted abandoned like a stray dog on the road.

 

Gave me a gift I won't forget. A place to call home.

 

Sometimes I want to love until the Sun comes up. Sometimes I just want to sleep.

 

Because sometimes I feel the weight of this whole goddamn world pressing down on me.

 

But I can rest my weary bones on your foundation set in stone.

 

You've never let me down. You’re a place to call home.
