Halfway Home Cafe-crd  Ricky Skaggs

---------------------------------------------------------------



---------------------------------------------------------------






[D]I was pourin' coffee for [A]table number one
I [Bm]couldn't help but [A]hear him [G]what was going on
[D]It got my attention when I [A]heard a young man's voice
Saying [Bm]sheriff I'll be [A]going now if its [G]alright with you boys
Those [A]years I spent in prison stole [Bm]to much time from me
I won't [G]waste another [D/F#]minute [Em]if I'm really [A]free
--Chorus--
I'm goin' [G]home my family's waitin' for me Goin' [D]home
I'm amazed that they still love me
They for[Bm]give me for the [A]bitter seeds I've [G]sown[A]
[Bm]Heaven knows I've [A]been away to [G]long
So [A]now I'm going [D]home....[G] [A]
[D]A burger and a special for [A]table number eight
I was [Bm]bustin' number [A]seven when I [G]heard her young heart break
[D]He told her it was over they could [A]never meet again
That he [Bm]found a taste of [A]courage twisted [G]on his wedding band
Her [A]tears began to fall but they [Bm]could not touch his heart
I [G]heard him say "I'm [D/F#]sorry But it was [Em]all wrong from the [A]start"
--Chorus--
I'm goin' [G]home my family's waitin' for me Goin' [D]home
I'm amazed that they still love me
They for[Bm]give me for the [A]bitter seeds I've [G]sown[A]
[Bm]Heaven knows I've [A]been away to [G]long
So [A]now I'm going [D]home....
There's a [A]million other stories from the [Bm]Halfway Home Cafe
It's a [A]never ending saga and they're [Bm]played out every [A]day
But [D]this one's finally over the [A]foods all put away
And the [Bm]coffee pot stands [A]empty at the [G]Halfway Home Cafe
But [D]over in the corner at [A]table number three
Sits a [Bm]father and a [A]runaway well it [G]looks that way to me
I said "[A]I hate to interrupt you but its [Bm]really gettin' late"
The [G]young girl looked up [D/F#]smilin she said "[Em]Mister that's [A]ok"
--Chorus--
I'm goin' [G]home my family's waitin' for me Goin' [D]home
I'm amazed that they still love me
They for[Bm]give me for the [A]bitter seeds I've [G]sown[A]
[Bm]Heaven knows I've [A]been away to [G]long
So [A]now I'm going [G]home....
[A]Hhmmm... I'm goin' [D]home
