G                             D
It’s right here in my face,
A                            D
but I turn the other way.
Cmaj7/G                 D
The end is drawing near,
G                                  D
And we live in a state of fear.
/           Bm       A        G
Under-neath Ari-zona skies,
/        Bm            A         G
I pre-tend not to see her cry.
Em                                G
In a whisper soft and low she says:
Dmaj7
Simple pleasure that is really
Gmaj7
all I want.
/                        Em
When you come round, when you
come round, when you come round,
/        Gmaj7
I want more.
Dmaj7
Simple Pleasure that is really
Gmaj7
all I need.
/                        Em
Won’t you come home,
won’t you come home,
won’t you come home
Gmaj7
with me?
G                           D
You’re fading out a-gain.
A                          D
So I take it on the chin.
Cmaj7/G          D
Help me find a way
G                                   D
To make it through each day.
/           Bm        A       G
Under-neath Ari-zona skies,
/         Bm           A          G
I pre-tend not to see her cry.
/      Em
In a whisper soft and low she says:

Repeat Chorus.

Won’t you come home with…
D D/A G

/           Bm        A       G
Under-neath Ari-zona skies,
Bm            A         G
I pre-tend not to see her cry.

And we’re tryin’ not to live for,
G
tryin’ not to live for now…

Repeat Chorus.

Won’t you come with me.

Won’t you come home with me

Won’t you come home with me.
