A

Can't you see I'm holding your flag

A

The one that you left on the ground

Em7 A

Well is the world too heavy for you

Em7 D

If it makes you feel better, I'll carry it, too

A

No one's gonna stand in your light

A

Impressions are easy to fight

Em7 A

But until you turn to me and say

Em7 D

You don't need anyone to carry the weight, I will stay

Bring it on home to me

Bm A D

Ab-il-ene

Bm D A

Isn't it good to be free

A

Can't you see I'm wearing your shirt

A

The one with the heart on the sleeves

Em7 A

Now everyone can see you've been hurt

Em7 D

Oh but honey don't give up on me

A

When you gonna make up your mind

A

When you gonna get out of bed

Em7 A

Well everyday you're gonna find

Em7 D

Broken promises are no worse than words never said

Bring it on home to me
