Hyland Brian
I'M AFRAID TO GO HOME
written by Gary Geld and Peter Udell
performed by Brian Hyland

Pattern 1:
Em / / / 2 / / / 3 / / / 4
I'm afraid to go home, I'm afraid to go home
              Am                        Em
Worries on my mind, afraid of what I'll find
Will my family be gone? I'm afraid to go home
              Am                       Em
Back to Tennessee, afraid of what I'll see

Pattern 2:
D7     G                                Em
  As I walk down this dusty road, got a heart with a heavy load
          Am                     D7        G
Ain't one thing that's the same,   so much sorrow and pain
D7        G                            Em
  Headin' home in a single file, every inch is a quarter mile
            Am           D7           G
Ain't heard nobody sing,   ain't seen one livin' thing

(in pattern 1):
Someone's waitin' for me, honey sweet as candy
Wanna hold her tight; Lord, make her be all right
Maybe 'round on next bend, all the ashes of land
Valleys will be green instead of what I've seen

(in pattern 2):
I'm afraid for the scrubby pine, for the sweet honeysuckle vine
I'm afraid for my home, for the fields that I roamed
Kick along down a homeward road, and your heart's gotta take the load
I'm afraid to go home, I'm afraid to go home

Em
Sherman's been in my town, burned it all to the ground
                  Am                          Em
Now there's not a tree 'tween Memphis and the Sea
                  Am   (decelerate...)        Em
Now there's not a tree 'tween Memphis and the Sea
