Intro: F   C/F  Bb/F  F   C/F  Bb/F  F

                        C/F     Bb/F  F
There was a time you were so happy 
              C/F     Bb/F  F
And everything was fine
                         C/F    Bb/F   Bb
But you let your love grow cold there 
                           F
And it's been killed by time
Gm                          Am
You thought you'd turn your back and run away 
Bb                  Am
To try to find some kind of truth
F                               Bb              Ab
But now you find you're farther from the truth 
                         Bb
And it's passing with your youth, yeah
      Cm                            
So, Why don't you come on back home?
Bb            Ab   Bb
You've been away so long
Cm                            
Why don't you come on back home?
Bb             Ab      Bb
You know where you belong
Cm    
Why don't you come on back home?
Bb            Ab   Bb
You've been away so long
Bb                    F
Now it's time to come home
Bb                    F
Now it's time to come home

                        Bb
Doubt was a weapon that crucified your faith
F                         Bb
Your mind your greatest enemy
        F            
Your learning wasn't the bad thing
       Bb
It was letting your reason rule
             F
And now your rational deductions
           Bb                               Gm
Are in the place that your faith should be
                   Am                     Bb
But, oh, you're as empty as you could be
                     Am                      F
Don't you know right now you could be free?
                              Gm
Why don't you come on back home to Jesus right now?
Ab                              Bb
He's waiting with open arms for you, oh my brother, yeah
Cm                              Bb
Why don't you come on back home?
              Ab   Bb
You've been away so long
Cm                              Bb
Why don't you come on back home?
               Ab        Bb
You know where you belong
Cm                              Bb
Why don't you come on back home?
              Ab   Bb
You've been away so long
                      F
Now it's time to come home
Bb                    F
Now it's time to come home
Bb                    F
Now it's time to come home

Bb   Cm/Bb   Bb   Cm/Bb   

Bb                          Cm/Bb        Bb
Why don't you come on back home to Jesus?
                      Cm/Bb   Bb
You've been gone away so long
                            Cm/Bb        Bb
Why don't you come on back home to Jesus?
                     Cm/Bb   Bb
You know where you belong
