Cos all the people I meet seem to come from my street
                 B       C#                    F#m     B
And I can't get away, because it's calling me (come on home)

Hear it calling me (come on home)

D#m: 6 6 8 8 7 6  D#m/D:  5 6 8 8 7 6  A7: x 0 2 2 2 3


This brilliant song is surprisingly complicated.  My copy of it is also 
not very clear, so I'm very unsure about some of the words and chords.  
Any help out there?
(released as a single in 1967, available on Kinks 
Kronikles album)
