[intro]
C    G    Am7/G   F   G


[verse]
              C             G
I come from a long line of pain
   Am     Am7/G    F              G
My family suffered greatly for my gain
      C             G
And I think a lot about
       Am       Am7/G
How my daddy died
     F                G
So I would not live without


[chorus]
        F              G  C
And his heart lives in my song
          F
Where the melody comes
    G                   C   C/B   Am
And just as quickly the melody is gone
    F           G
I'm back alone, far from home


[verse]
       C              G
Now my mamma's on her own
  Am     Am7/G            F            G
I try to call her and see her when I'm home
          C                   G
And after all that she's been through
        Am         Am7/G          F              G
All the doctors say: "There ain't nothing we can do"


[chorus]
        F              G  C
And her heart lives in my song
          F
Where the melody comes
    G                   C   C/B   Am
And just as quickly the melody is gone
    F           G
I'm back alone, far from home


[bridge]
          Am       C/B    C
There's a bird outside my window
F                      G
Takes the song where he goes
       C   C/B   Am
And he leaves it there
       F                  G
Like a dead man's rocking chair


[solo]
C   G   Am   F   G
C   G   Am   F   G   G


[verse]
    C                    G
And tonight I'm feeling lost and
Am               F              G
Headin' down the highway out to Boston
          C             G
I get the sense I might lose it
        Am    Am7/G         F               G
I thank God tonight for the light I got in music


[chorus]
          F              G    C
'Cause my heart lives in this song
          F
Where the melody comes
    G                   C   C/B   Am
And just as quickly the melody is gone
    F           G        C
I'm back alone, far from home
