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...

                   QUEEN: Leaving Home Ain't Easy

          Em      A          Em7         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           Dmaj7     G
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 V.    A7sus      D V.                        E VII.(slide down)
Leavin' home ain't easy (Oh I never thought it would be easy)
A V.    A7sus     D V.                    E VII. (s.d)
Leavin' all  you  own (Oh is the main thing calling me back ?)
A V.    A7sus     D V. F#    Bm  F7   A           E7     A      Dm9   A
Leavin' home ain't  ea  sy  ( On the  one you're leaving home)

 
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 V.  A7sus    D V. F#  Bm   F7       
Leavin home ain't ne  ce  ssa  ry       Leave the on ly  way
