From the album This Time

Intro: / E  E / 

         E    B7               E     E *
Home for sale,  it's much too large
          E    B7              E     E
Too many rooms,  big old empty yard
          A    A               E     E
Far more space,  than the owner needs
         E     B7        E     E
Price includes,  all memories

         E    B7              E     E
Home for sale,  restored like new
       E     B7             E     E
Just a place,  two lives outgrew
            A     A              E     E
A change in heart,  forces move away
              E    B7               E     E
Would like to keep,  but just can't stay

D                  A                  E     E
  Listen close and you might hear the sound
D                      A                E     E
  Of what you think is rainfall leaking down
D             A                    E     E
  The roof is fine set aside your fears
F#m7                          B7    
    It's just a few remaining tears

Verse Solo:

Home for sale,   not all that old
           F     C7                F     F
A family’s dream,  stands dark and cold
       Bb    Bb            F     F
Scenic views,  that go for free
           F    C7             F     F
Of all the love,  that used to be
         F    C7 (tacet)    F
Home for sale,  is much too large.


*Note: Organ in original ends most lines with “A-E”, or Esus4-E” 
if you wish to embellish. Recorded guitar does not do this.

Original song modulates up one half-step with last verse, 
although you don’t have to do this.

Alt Ending (no modulation):
Verse Solo:

A family’s dream,  stands dark and cold
       A     A             E     E
Scenic views,  that go for free
           E    B7             E     E
Of all the love,  that used to be
         E    B7 (tacet)    E
Home for sale,  is much too large.
