Intro
Am  a few times then  Am     C      Dm  I think?

 

Am         C
Come on lay your hands on me
Dm
Feel the will of God's TV
Am              C
I will save you every one
Dm
You will pay me when I'm done
Am   C
100,000 Jesus children
Dm
All dressed up and no-one with them
Am                C 
Lead them not into temptation
Dm
With your tales of Hell's damnation

Chorus
C          F      F/E  Dm
Searching for the long way home
Am         F      C     Dm
Searching for the long way home
C          F      F/E  Dm
Searching for the long way home
Am         F      C     Dm
Searching for the long way home

Out upon the china seas
Boats will run eternally
Storms on land and storms avail
Captains roar and the women wail
1/2 Million Nixon babies
Some with toys and some with rabies
Hunted by the men in black
No room here man send them back

C          F      F/E  Dm
Searching for the long way home
Am         F      C     Dm
Searching for the long way home
C          F      F/E  Dm
Searching for the long way home
Am         F      C     Dm
Searching for the long way home

Am   Am ......

Solo

Is just a continuation of Am C Dm I think again?

(same as 1st verse)
Underneath your own safe sky
You may never wonder why
Some will never make their peace
Some have never been released
Fires in the LA sky
The truth ran out and justice died
Better arm the national guard
Final notice has been served

C          F      F/E  Dm
Searching for the long way home
Am         F      C     Dm
Searching for the long way home
C          F      F/E  Dm
Searching for the long way home
Am         F      C     Dm
Searching for the long way home

C          F      F/E  Dm
Searching for the long way home
Am         F      C     Dm
Searching for the long way home
C          F      F/E  Dm
Searching for the long way home
Am         F      C     Dm
Searching for the long way home

 

Then I think it's just jamming on a couple of strings of Am to fade.
