Intro.:  | (A) | (G) (D) | (A) | (A) | (A) | (G) (D) | (A) | (A)

                  E      D    E               A
She opened up the letter from Nashville, Ten- nessee
                            D      E                             A
He said, "Hon, they like my music, the songs I wrote for you and me"
                           D                                             A
The boys and me just cut a record and it could hit the charts before too long
                   E                          A    G D A
So it's gonna be a while 'til I can come back home

[Chorus]

                    D                                      A
Yes, I'm gonna be a country star and everyone will know my name
                          E                                     A    G D A
Ah, you know I love those bright lights when I step on stage to sing
                            D                            A
I'll be travlin' 'round the country with a big bus and a band
                            E
So just keep the home fires burnin' while I'm gone
                              A   D A
And I'll get back home when I can

                            E       D        E              A
She said, "Hun, I hear your record, aw, they play it every- day
                     D         E                       A
And everybody really likes it, so I guess your on your way
                        D                              A
But darling, please re- member we all need you here at home
                            E                       A         G D A
And the kids all miss their daddy, so don't be gone too long"

[Chorus]

                       D                                     A
Yes I know that your a country star and everybody knows your name
                          E                                       A    G D A
And I know you love those bright lights when you step on stage to sing
                     D                                     A
Just remember we all love you and don't get blinded by the light
                               E
We'll just keep the home fires burnin' while you're gone
                              A     G D A Bb Ab Eb Bb
You know we pray for you each night

                         F      Eb          F                           Bb
After six long months of goin', I guess the road just finally took it's toll
                              Eb      F                     Bb
'Cause his songs has lost all meaning and he felt so all a- lone
                  Eb                               Bb
Then one night in Jackson, he went out on stage to play
                        F                                Bb  Ab Eb Bb
And the crowd stared at disbelief at the words he had to say

[Chorus]

                     Eb                                            Bb
I don't want to be a country star, it ain't the way I thought it'd be
                        F                                            Bb Ab Eb Bb
Well, it took me such a long time to know that it ain't the life for me
                           Eb                               Bb
'Cause the days can get so lonely and the nights can get so long
                      F                                 Bb   Eb Bb
Lord, I think it's a- bout time, this country star went home

                          F                                     Bb   Ab Eb Bb
Yes, I think that it's a- bout time, this country boy went back home -----
