Paul Stanley: "Boy we're gonna have a good time tonight!"

(Count four beats)

Intro- G,C,D
       G,C,D 

            G
It's been a month or two since I've been sleeping with you.
           C                  D
I'm comin' home again.
             G                                                C             D
I've been to east and west but baby I like best the road that leads to you.
   C                                 D         N.C.
Oh girl, it seems the whole wide world... Seems to say.
                G
Hotels they all look the same, just seem to drive me insane,
            C                 D
but I can't get away.
              G
Until I recieve a call that tells me that will be all
        C                     D
and the I hop a plane.
        C                         D             N.C.
It's true, I'm not sure if you knew.... I'm comin' home to you.

It's true, I'm not sure if you knew.... I'm comin' home to you.

(Interlude)-Repeate 3 times.
         N.C.
I'm comin' home baby...

(Interlude)-Repeate 2 times.

End in Fanfare.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Special Notes: During the strumming parts of the interlude I believe KISS
uses a Cadd9 before they change to the D chord, but I like the way the G
chord sounds better. So try it out both ways and pick your fave! Also the
Unplugged version might be different from the Hotter Than Hell version so if
it is you'll have to adjust timing, etc...
