VERSE:
 Am                                    F
Starin' through a spiderweb where the windshield used to be
  G                                 E
What's left of the dashboard, the smell of gasoline
       Am                            F
I can just make out one neon light south off through the trees
    G                               E
My feet took over walkin' 'fore my mind caught up with me
 F                                  Am
When I walked in my tab was already open
     F                                     E
My drink was poured and my cigarette was smokin'


CHORUS:
 E             Dm         Em
Somebody said "Hey girl, where you been?
        Am
Doncha know I been waitin' for ya?
        Dm                 Em
"Got a band up there been dyin' to play a little
  Am
'Devil Went Down to Georgia'
  Dm                  Em                   Am       F
"Rest that trav'lin' soul, looks like the road was long
  Em                     Am   F  G  Dm  Em
"Welcome to Southern Babylon"


VERSE:
        Am                       F
Had to pull myself together and ask to use the phone
     G
The waitress smiled a wicked grin,
            E
It sent a chill right through my bone
           Am
I said "I need to call the tow-truck,
      F
Some way to move along"
            G
She said, "Who you wanna call
                 E
Now that you've been called home?"


CHORUS:
 E        Dm         Em
She said "Hey girl, where you been?
        Am
Doncha know I been waitin' for ya?
            Dm                 Em                     Am
"You got a band up there just dyin' to play a little 'Hotel California'
     Dm              Em                     Am
"And maybe it's not sinkin' in, but you'll learn to play along
                  F
"Honey, you been gone
      Em                         Am   F  G  Dm  Em    Am  F  G  Dm  Em
Since you walked into Southern Babylon"


VERSE:
     Am                           F
"I'm not supposed to be here, bartender don't you see?
           G                            E
"I took a gig down in Atlanta and the brakes gave out on me"
           Am                            F
She said, "We know all about ya. It's a little bit too late"
     G                      E              E  E  E
She handed me a guitar and pointed to the fla-a-ames


CHORUS:
             G
"Hey girl, where you been?
        Am
Doncha know I been waitin' for ya?
            Dm                 Em
"You got a band up there just dyin' to play a little
  Am
'Devil Went Down to Georgia'
 Dm                   Em                   Am       F
"Rest that trav'lin' soul, looks like the road was long
  E                     Am    F
"Welcome to Southern Babylon"
              G
Southern Babylon
Dm          E         Am
Welcome to Southern Babylon
F            G   Dm Em Am
Welcome home
