Intro: G   C 

            G                      G       G/F#    Em     C 
Why are the rain clouds coming and pouring down on me? 
                  G                   G        G/F#  Em     C 
And why can't the north wind turn and blow the other way? 
                  G                  G     G/F#   Em      
And where has the sunshine gone? Oh, I can barely see 
              Am      C            Am              G       C 
This northern rain is falling, and home is calling me 


         G               G     G/F#    Em     C 
Sun in a southern sky is all I need to see 
                G                G        G/F#       Em     C 
Just watching a small bird fly, above the fields and me 
          G                      G        G/F#      Em      
Walking a dusty road and there's nothing 'round the bend 
           Am     C        Am          G     
Except for golden tones of going home again 



C G D Going home______ C G D C Going home______
G G G/F# Em C Muddy old river flowing 'neath a fallen tree G G G/F# Em C And sunflower garden growing twice as tall as me G G G/F# Em Sister and father hear me, what I've learned today Am C Am G I ain't no northern girl, I've been too long away
C G D Going home______ C G D C Going home______
G G G/F# Em C And on a starry old summer evening, humming warm and sweet G G G/F# Em C I hit the road believing, I was bound to leave G G G/F# Em And it took a New England sky to teach me how to say Am C Am G I ain't no northern girl, I've been too long away Am C Am G G/F# Em I ain't no northern girl, I've been too long away Am C Am G D G This ain't no northern song and I've been too long away
