Come Home
     By Pierce Pettis
     Transcribed by Joe Higgins
     This is rough crd file of this song that I figured out for someone who
was looking for it.  I figured as long as I was e mailing it to him I may as
well send a copy to OLGA.  Pierce does this song on his fine disc, "While the
Serpent Lies Sleeping."  He uses a very controllded strum techniqu that
centers on the middle strings

Capo 2

Verses follow a 2 measure pattern /D-Em7/C -G/
D:  XX023X        Em7: XX203X     C:  X3201X     
G: X2003X

Verse:
I remember how you loved this holy city in the spring
Fresh flowers in the market, 
Children running in the street
But it's changed so much I don't think you would 
recognize a thing
Now it's just a red light district an international disgrace

Refrain:
G:  320033     Dsus: XX0233    C add D: X30033

G                               Dsus 
Come home......come home
                          Cadd D
You've been gone so long
          G
Come home

Verse 2:
Papers and petitions have been piling at the door
nailed to the door
Theives break in at night they say you want be back no more
Your wife seems so lethargic, so scattered and so frail
And the child who's never known you
just stands at the wall and wails

Refrain

The following section is done with two guitars.  One plays the chords
underneath while the second drones on:  XXX033 pretty
much throughout:
C                   
Yellow ribbons 'round the olive trees you planted in the 
Em
park
Bm                              G
                                           C
Only the brave or the foolish ever walk there after dark
 Am                                       
All around the world a table's set and there's an 
           G
empty place
Bm
Still we go through the motions breaking bread
                       C   D   C
and saying grace

But the ones you left to run your business run it right into 
the ground
Each one a law into himself leading followers around
And in the babble of the street amid the jostling of the crowd
On every side like helpless sheep
It makes me want to cry out loud

Refrain
