Miranda Lambert – “The House That Built Me”

(Capo on 3)

Intro.: | (D) | (D) | (D) (A) | (G) (D) | (D) (A) | (D) | (D) —

I know they (D)say you can’t go home again
(F#m) I just had to come back one last time
(G)Ma’am I know you don’t know me from Adam
But these (D)handprints on the front steps are (A)mine

And up those (D)stairs, in that little back bedroom
Is where I (F#m)did my homework and I learned to play guitar
And I (G)bet you didn’t know under that live oak
My (D)favorite dog is buried in the (A)yard

(Chorus)
I (G)thought if I could touch this place or (D)feel it
This (Em)brokenness inside me might start (D)healin’
Out (G)here it’s like I’m someone else,
I (Bm)thought that maybe I could find my-(G)self
If (D)I could just come in I swear I’ll (G)leave
Won’t take nothin’ but a (D)memory from the (A)house that built (D) me

Mama (D)cut out pictures of houses for years
From (F#m)”Better Homes and Garden” magazines
Plans were (G)drawn, concrete poured, and nail by nail and board by board
(D) Daddy gave life to mama’s dream (A)

(Chorus)
I (G)thought if I could touch this place or (D)feel it
This (Em)brokenness inside me might start (D)healin’
Out (G)here it’s like I’m someone else,
I (Bm)thought that maybe I could find my-(G)self
If (D)I could just come in I swear I’ll (G)leave
Won’t take nothin’ but a (D)memory from the (A)house that built (D) me

You (Bm)leave home, you move on and you (D)do the best you can
(Em)I got lost in this whole world and for-(G)got who I (A)am

(Chorus)
I (G)thought if I could touch this place or (D)feel it
This (Em)brokenness inside me might start (D)healin’
Out (G)here it’s like I’m someone else,
I (Bm)thought that maybe I could find my-(G)self
If (D)I could just come in I swear I’ll (G)leave
Won’t take nothin’ but a (D)memory from the (A)house that built (G) me

Outro.: | (D) | (Em) (A) | (D) —
