D G A
I’ve been in the bright lights
D G A
Drank champagne and reached dizzy heights
D G A
There’s nothing compared
G A D G A
To the warm fire lights of way back home
D G A
I’ve been where the snow falls
D G A
Listened to the banjo on my front porch
D G A
There’s nothing compared
G A
To the sweet melodies that carry me home

Chorus
BM E
There be no more sad goodbyes
BM E
No more reasons to wonder why
G
Why we can’t be together
A REST D
Loving this world and each other

Verse 3

I’ve made lots of new friends

Who I love and I’ll see again

There’s nothing compared

To the warm friendly faces from back home

I’ve hung with the big stars

Had one night stands in small town bars

There’s nothing compared

To the bright stars in the night skies, of home

chorus 2
Bm E
yes I’m coming back again

Bm E
cause I’ve been gone for a long time
G
and it carries me back home
A Bm
back across the miles oooo
G
it carries me back home
A DGA
back across the miles
A DGA
I’m coming back again
D G A
Cause I’ve been gone for a long long time
D
I’m coming home

Outro

D G A
I’ve been in the bright lights
D G A
I’ve been where the snow falls
D G A
I’ve made lots of new friends

D
I’m coming home

I've Changed My Mind

Written By: Jillian Jake

Am E
I saw you kissing your new lover
Dm Am F E
And I started wishing that I was her
Am E
Maybe I was wrong to push you away
Dm Am F E
I should have listened to all you had to say

Chorus
Dm Am
I’ve changed my mind
Dm Am
I must be blind
E
You may not be perfect but I think

You might be the best I’d find

Lead break
Am E
I used to tolerate all kinds of hell
Dm
I needed somebody to knock me
Am F E
From this dizzy spell
Am E
I learnt to love myself and reach for the skies
Dm Am F E
I should have trusted you more that you wouldn’t lie

Chorus
