VERSE 1:
               C          Em       G
   He's on the run from a bad break
       C              Em          D
   His soles are worn down to the skin
                C          Em       G
   He's got the scars of a heartache
              C        Em          D
   So you can see everywhere he's been

C                              Em      D/F#  G
   And where he was he was The only one
C                             Em         D
   So he went looking for his mother's son

CHORUS:
            C       G        Dsus
And with my family around me now
   C             G        Dsus
It takes me to a new place
        C         G         Dsus
When my family surrounds me now
            Em    D
You see it on my face

VERSE 2:
               C             Em       G
   But his own people didn't know him
                 C        Em           D
   They couldn't take the bad with the good
                   C                Em       G
   There's just so much he couldn't show them
               C                   Em      D
   It left him sneaking 'Round the neighborhood

C                       Em             D/F#  G
   He just wanted to be known and loved
C                                   Em         D
   And sometimes flesh and blood is not Enough

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Em          D2/F#   G6    Cmaj7      B11
   Who's my sis  -  ter     Who's my brother
Em          D2/F#  G6     Cmaj7       B11
   Who's my fa  -  ther     Who is my mother
Em           D2/F# G6    Cmaj7  B11
   Those who I     can - not    sell anything
Em           D2/F# G6     Cmaj7  B11
   Those who can - not    buy my loVe

His soles are worn down to the skin

So you can see everywhere he's been

And where he was he was the only one

CHORUS:
And with my family around me now

He just wanted to be known and loved
And sometimes flesh and blood is not enough

BRIDGE:
Who's my sister, who's my brother
Who's my father, who is my mother
Those who I cannot sell anything
Those who cannot buy my love
