Good song.  Sounds like thatīs Chris Mostert on sax.  There is an early version of this song on The Piano Album, called New Orleans (Riding Home).

 

 

(Em)  (D)  (C)  (D)  (Em)  (D)  (C)  (D)

(Em)  (D)  (C)  (D)  (Em)  (D)  (C)  (D)

(Em) There's a lonesome, (D)homeward looking (C)bird, (D)

(Em) Sailing (D)west, without a (C)word. (D)

(G) Sailing his (D)shadow,

(C) DC (D)highway, coming on,

(Em) Everybody (D)watches 'till he's (C)gone. (D)

(Em)  (D)  (C)  (D)  (Em)  (D)  (C)  (D)

 

(Em) There's a cold sky (D)breaking where he's (C)been, (D)

(Em) Flying (D)westward with the (C)wind. (D)

(G) It kind of makes me (D)wonder

(C) When these empty eyes will (D)find you,

(Em) Maybe some to(D)morrow, my old (C)friend, (D)

(Em) Maybe some to(D)morrow, my old (C)friend. (D)

 

(Em) Wish I had a (D)poet's open (C)soul, (D)

(Em) Wish I had a (D)poet's open (C)soul. (D)

(G) Find the songs to (D)tell you,

(C) Find the words to (D)say

(Em) Soon we will (D)all be going (C)home, (D)

(Em) Soon we will (D)all be going (C)home, (D)

(Em) Soon we will (D)all be going (C)home, (D)

(Em) Soon we will (D)all be (C)going home, (D)

Going (Em)home. (D)  (C)  (D)  (Em)
