1.†††† I watched the planes come in on the early morning flights,

††††††††††††† C††††††††††††† G†††††††† C††††††††† †††G††††† †††††D

††† but I could not stand to see them land without you.

†††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Bm††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††† A

††† Now Iím thumbing through my forty-fives on another endless night,

††††††††††††††† †††C††††††††††† G††††††† B7†††††††††† ††††Em†††† C†††††††† †††††D††† †††††††††††G

††† and the same old lines, going back in time, tell me this is nothing new.

Now I know how Paul McCartney felt when he got up to say :

I wish it was yesterday.

†††††††††††† C††††††††††††† G††††††††† C††††††††† ††G†††† ††††D

††† while I am living without you, I am thinking about you,

†††††††††† C†††††††††† D††††††† G

††† like only the lonely do.

I wish I was homeward bound.
