[Verse 1]
D
I know they say you can’t go home again.
F#m
I just had to come back one last time.
G
Ma’am I know you don’t know me from Adam.
D                                         A
But these hand prints on the front steps are mine.
D
Up those stairs, in that little back bedroom
F#m
Is where I did my homework and I learned to play guitar.
G
And I bet you didn’t know, under that live oak
D                                                                    A
My favorite dog is buried in the yard.

[Chorus]
G                                                                    D
I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
Em                                              D
This brokenness inside me might start healing.
D
Out here it’s like I’m someone else,
Bm                                                   G
I thought that maybe I could find myself
D                                                                    G
If I could just come in I swear I’ll leave.
D
Won’t take nothing but a memory
A                                              D
From the house that built me.

[Verse 2]
D
Mama cut out pictures of houses for years.
F#m
From ‘Better Homes and Garden’ magazines.
G
Plans were drawn, and concrete poured,
G
And nail by nail and board by board
D                                              A
Daddy gave life to mama’s dream.

[Chorus]
G
I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
Em                                              D
This brokenness inside me might start healing.
G
Out here it’s like I’m someone else,

I thought that maybe I could find myself.
D                                              G
If I could just come in I swear I’ll leave.
D
Won’t take nothing but a memory
A                                              D
From the house that built me.

[Bridge]
Bm                                              D
You leave home, you move on and you do the best you can.
Em                        G                                              A
I got lost in this old world and forgot who I am.

[Chorus]
G                                              D
I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
Em                                                                    D
This brokenness inside me might start healing.
G
Out here it’s like I’m someone else,
Bm                                                                    G
I thought that maybe I could find myself.
D                                              G
If I could walk around I swear I’ll leave.
D
Won’t take nothing but a memory
A                                              D
From the house that, built me.
