Verse I:

 

F                                F/A                                   Bb                   G/B

Walking through the front gate          like Iíve done so many times

 

Bb/G                    C/A                                   Dm/Bb            C

Memories of the old home place          are stirring in my mind

 

F                            F/A                        Bb                    G/B

I stop to smell the roses          mama planted by the porch

 

Bb/G                      C/A                                 Db/Bb                   Csus4    C

The wind is softly blowing          memories through the open door

 

 

Verse II:

 

F                           F/A                                 Bb                        G/B

I slowly climb the wood steps          daddy built with tender love

 

Bb/G               C/A                                 Dm/Bb                C

Everything is still the same          as it was when I was young

 

F                                 F/A                      Bb                     G/B

But thereís an empty feeling          still deep inside my heart

 

Bb/G               C/A                             Db/Bb            Csus4    C

How I long to see my dad          and mamaís open arms

Then Iíll be home (Iíll be home) when I see them face to face

 

           Am                 Dm                     Bb/G                     C7

Iíll be home (Iíll be home) when Iím in their sweet embrace

 

Bb                    C/Bb                           F                          Bb       F/A

Even though I love this house          and everything it holds

When I know that they are here          then Iíll   be home

 

 

Verse III:

 

Gb                              Gb/Bb                       B                          Ab/C

Walking through the city          streets of gold and gates of pearl

 

B/Ab                    Db/Bb                   Ebm/B                Db

Never seen such beauty          anywhere in this old world

 

Gb                        Gb/Bb                   B                Ab/C

But still I will be lonely          if itís possible to be

 

B/Ab               Db/Bb                           D/B              C/D   D7

Not until Iím face to face          will it be home for me

 

 

Chorus II:

 

D7       G                  D/G                   C                         G    

Iíll be home (Iíll be home) when before His throne I stand

 

           Bm                Em                   C/A                             D7

Iíll be home (Iíll be home) when I touch his nail-scarred hands

 

C                      D/C                          G                      C         G/B

Even though a mansion waits          made of purest gold

 

C/A                   D/B        Em

When I see my Saviorís face

 

C/A                   D/B        Em

When I see my Saviorís face

When I see my Saviorís face

 

C/A  G/D D7 G

Then Iíll  be home

 

C/A   G/D D7 G

Then Iíll   be home
