A
Can't you see I'm holding your flag
A
The one that you left on the ground
    Em7                         A
Well is the world too heavy for you
     Em7                          D
If it makes you feel better, I'll carry it, too
A
No one's gonna stand in your light
A
Impressions are easy to fight
     Em7                    A
But until you turn to me and say
         Em7             D
You don't need anyone to carry the weight, I will stay


Chorus:

Bm  A  E
Ab-il-ene
D                   A
Bring it on home to me
Bm  A  D
Ab-il-ene
Bm       D           A
Isn't it good to be free

A
Can't you see I'm wearing your shirt
A
The one with the heart on the sleeves
   Em7                           A
Now everyone can see you've been hurt
      Em7              D
Oh but honey don't give up on me
A
When you gonna make up your mind
A
When you gonna get out of bed
    Em7                    A
Well everyday you're gonna find
       Em7         D
Broken promises are no worse than words never said



Bm  A  E
Ab-il-ene
D                   A
Bring it on home to me
Bm  A  D
Ab-il-ene
             C#m       Bm    E
You're always givin' it all away


        D               C#m            Bm        E
Then you want someone to come along and save the day
                         A
But you make it much too hard


Instrumental: A      D    A


Bm  A  E
Ab-il-ene
D                           A
You can bring it on home to me

Bm  A  E
Ab-il-ene
D                   A
Bring it on home to me

Isn't it good to be free
