If Not Here

key of [G]

Believe me when I tell you this world is not my home
Believe me when I tell you this world is not my home
All my days I am bound to roam
If not here then where?

The ghost of the years does not go away
The ghost of the years does not go away
The more I run the more it wants to stay
If not here then where?

A burden shared is only half a trouble
I knew you cared, I knew you’d understand
A burden shared is only half a trouble
Joy that’s shared is joy made double

In your arms I’ve found a place to rest
In your arms I think I’ve found a place to rest
In your arms, that’s where I like it best
If not here then where?

No one’s ever been able to define blues. To me, blues is three chords and something to say. There’s a real temptation to think that blues is singing about misery and sorrow. It’s singing about your experiences, and what I find in blues is the message of hope and inspiration, because you may be singing about your misery, but the fact that you’re singing, that’s the real message.
