                [Intro]
C  G  Fmaj7
C  G  Fmaj7

[Verse]
C         G                      Fmaj7
You always know where you can find me
C                    G              Fmaj7
I’m up here where the air is pure and true
C                G               Fmaj7
The cleverness of words just binds me
C         G                  Fmaj7  C/B
They won't help me to get over you

[Chorus]
Am                D/F#
And maybe you got lost at the five ways
G           Em
Took a wrong turn just like always
Am              D/F#                G  C/G G7
Or did you just take the long way home?

[Verse]
C                   G               Fmaj7
I hear the wind blow through the pine trees
C          G                      Fmaj7
I watch the frozen lights come into view
C        G                     Fmaj7
The stars above they don't align me
C        G                   Fmaj7  C/B
They only shine a dim light on you

[Chorus]
Am                D/F#
And maybe you got lost at the five ways
G           Em
Took a wrong turn just like always
Am              D/F#                G   C/G G7
Or did you just take the long way home?

[Break]
C  G  Fmaj7
C  G  Fmaj7

[Verse]
C      G                            Fmaj7
I wanna hear you walk up right behind me
C              G                    Fmaj7  C/B
But the dawn is come and it's done me in

[Chorus]
Am           D/F#
And could it be that you don't love me
G        Em
For who I am or what I could be
Am               D/F#                      G   C/G G7
And from where I am it's such a long way down

[Chorus]
Am               D/F#
So maybe you got lost at the five ways
G           Em
Took a wrong turn just like always
Am              D/F#                G  C/G G7
Or did you just take the long way home?

[Break]
C  G  Fmaj7
C  G  Fmaj7

[Outro]
C           G                Fmaj7       C  G  Fmaj7
Did you just take the long way home?
C              G                Fmaj7
Or did you just take the long way home?


Note II:
Chords differ from version to version. But this is the jist of it.
There's also version with capo 4th fret.
Intro riff also differs depending on the version (one guitar, two guitars).
This is my suggestion for one guitar (incorporate with strumming):

e|--0--------0--1--3--------0--------------------|
B|--1--1--3--------0--------1-----0--1--3/5------|
G|--0--------------0--------2--2-----------------|
D|--2--------------0--------3--------------------|
A|--3--------------2--------3--------------------|
E|--x--------------3--------x--------------------|

e|--0--------0--1--3--------0--------------------|
B|--1--1--3--------0--------1--------------------|
G|--0--------------0--------2--------------------|
D|--2--------------0--------3--------------------|
A|--3--------------2--------3--------------------|
E|--x--------------3--------x--------------------|
