C           G      D
What are we doing here

        C        D        Em
Such a long way away from home

            F
We've been away so long

Eb	                  A (5th fr.)	
Away so long, away from home


(Same as first verse)

So what are we doing here
In a place where we have no friends
All we can do is sit and cry
Let the time drag by and think of home


C (3rd fr.)        F
Home . . . what a day that will be

Bb                      Dm
The faces of people we love, that we'll see

        Bb                  Dm
The memories of what we had left will return

       Bb   C (3rd fr.)   Dm (no 3rd)     D
The present remains, the past is just born


             G
And there's only twenty-five days

      F
Six hours and ten minutes

       Em                          F
Till this'll all be five thousand miles away

Bb                         Dm
Whoops, there goes another day

Bb                  Dm (no 3rd)   D
I'm wishing my life away



(Repeat everything one more time, and there you have it!)
