Leaving Home Aint Easy guitar chords

Subject: CRD: Leaving home ain't easy - Queen

Somebody requested this one. Here is my humble contribution.

I should mention that it's next to impossible to make something out of this
song without extensive back vocals.All the harmony is there,as a matter of fact

But anyway...

                      Leaving Home Ain't Easy
                            ( Brian May )
                             Queen, Jazz 1979

                               in the upper voice.

Asus     A    All the time between the verses.

//    / /



          Em      A          Em          A          Em       A          C#m
I take a step outside and I breathe the air  And I slam the door and I'm on
F#m
my way
         Bm       E            Bm         E                 Bm      E
I won't lay no blame  I won't call you  names 'Cause I've  made my break
       C#         F#m          C#     F#m             D      A (??)
And I won't look back  I've turned my back to those endless games.


The second verse is the same except :
              Bm            E               Bm     E                Bm
.... Shaking dust from my shoes  There's a road ahead And there's  no way  back
        D            E
home  (No way)   But I have to say

A      A2   Asus   A     F#m                                    E
Lea -  vin' home ain't easy (Oh I never thought it would be easy)
A      A2   Asus  A  F#m                  E
Lea - vin' all you   own (Oh is the main thing calling me back ?)
A      A2   Asus       A   F#    Bm  F    A   A2     E7 E    A       Asus A
Lea - vin' home ain't ea - sy  ( On the  one you're leaving home)

 Am      Asus
Stay my love ..... etc   the same as intro.


The rest is the same, except for the last but one time the chorus is played:
 A  A2  Asus      A   F#  Bm   F        A     D   B   E   D
Leavin home ain't ne  ce  ssa  ry       Leave the on ly  way


Enjoy!
