Intro
| [A] | [A] | [A] | [A]

Well I | [A] stumbled in the | darkness
I'm | [A] lost and a- | lone |
| [A] ...Though I said I'd go be- | fore us | [A]
and | [A] show the way back | [F#m] home
| [F#m] ...There's a | [D] light up a- | [A] head
I | [A] can't hold on very | [D] long | [D]
For- | [A] give me pretty baby but I |
| [E7] always take the long way | [A] home | [A↓]

Money's just | [A] something you | throw
Off the | [A] back of a | train |
| [A] ...Got a head full of | lightning | [A]
A | [A] hat full of | [F#m] rain |
| [F#m] ...And I | [D] know that I | [A] said
I'd | [A] never do it a- | [D] gain | [D]
I | [A] love you pretty baby but I |
| [E7] always take the long way | [A] home | [A]

I put | [A] food on the | table
And a | [A] roof over- | head |
| [A] ...But I'd trade it all to- | morrow | [A]
For the | [A] highway in- | [F#m] stead |
| [F#m] ...Watch your | [D] back, keep your eyes shut | [E7] tight |
Your | [A] love's the only thing I've ever | [D] known | [D]
One thing for | [A] sure pretty baby I |
| [E7] always take the long way | [A] home | [A]

Bridge
| [E7] Mmmmm | [E7] Mmmmm |
| [A] Mmmmm | [A] Mmmmm |
| [D] Mmmmm | [D] Mmmmm |
| [E7] Mmmmm | [E7] Mmmmm

You know I love you | [A] baby | [A] |
| [A] More than the whole wide | world
You are my | [A] woman | [A]
I | [A] know you are my | [F#m] pearl | [F#m]
Let's go | [D] out past the party | [E7] lights
Where | [A] we can finally be a- | [D] lone | [D]
Come with | [A] me...
and | [E7] we can take the long way | [A] home mm mm | [D] mmm
Come with | [A] me, together |
| [E7] we can take the long way | [A] home mm mm | [D] mmm
Come with | [A] me, together |
| [E7] we can take the long way | [A] home | [D] | [A↓]
