LyricsEverytime PlayedSong History

Can't Find My Way Home
(Steve Winwood)
Transcribed by: Douglas French
============================================================
The original recording uses a second overdubbed guitar track
to fill in various rhythms and riffs thus making playing
CFMWH solo a daunting but not impossible task.

The basic picking pattern below forms the foundation for
everything else.  Get the basic picking pattern down then
add in whatever flourishes and riffs you can squeeze in.

Play with a pronounced syncopation in the rhythm. Emphasize
the first bass note in each measure, picking the second bass
note of each measure lightly, if at all.
============================================================

============================================================

     D7sus          G
Come down off your throne
     Gm/Bb          D
And leave your body alone
F         G         D
      Somebody must change

You are the reason
I've been waiting so long
Somebody holds the key

         G                  A    Asus          D  Dsus  D
Well I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
Em                      G          F#m Em  D
   And I'm wasted and I can't find my  way home

Come down own your own
And leave your money at home <- lyrics on album jacket but
Somebody must change         ..."And leave your body alone"
                             is sung on the album.
You are the reason
I've been waiting all these years
Somebody holds the key

I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
Oh and I'm wasted and I can't find my way home
But I can't find my way home
But I can't find my way home
But I can't find my way home
But I can't find my way home
Still I can't find my way home
And I aint done nothing wrong
But I can't find my way home

JB adds:
Sometimes I feel like I just woke up so far from home
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a bird up in the sky
Sometimes I just feel so far from home

============================================================
Notes on chords:

The opening chord is a D7sus missing the fifth.  This
resolves naturally into the following G chord.

The chord in the third measure is an inversion of a Gm with
the flatted third in the bass.

The two suspended chords in the chorus are very important as
they lead the progression into the chords that follow.
