Sittin in this lonely town wonderin when things are going to change
F          C                Dm
Dreamin my life away and it seems them dreams have
turned into a bunch of dust clouds
F         C                Dm                Bb
Gettin my nerve up, but my past is pullin me down
F            C               Dm                  Bb
Wonderin how long this black sheep can stick around

F        C                           Dm            Bb             F
Somebody told me once before you can never go home again once you leave
       C                      Dm            Bb
Say anything just to scare me away from the truth of
[ Tab from: ]

So I thanked him for his two cents with a shake and some sympathy
F                  C                Dm                 Bb
And I packed up my blue jeans and I headed for the big prize of my

F     C       Dm                        Bb
Bye bye black sheep, black sheep of the family
F     C       Dm             Bb
Bye bye black sheep how that means so much to me
F     C       Dm             Bb
Bye bye to my friends and my family
F     C       Dm                Bb
Bye bye black sheep goin off to set my soul, set it free

G                          Bb
Times they were a changin, I did just a little re-arrangin
G                      Bb
Take a couple chances, my progress it advances
C                           F/C/Dm/Bb
To that prize of my freedom*

It's written in the stars steel bars never will a prison cell make
Once I find that sweet home or a place I like to call home anyway
Some people will say I'm crazy singin out loud like I do here on the
When I got a song I sing it out loud and if you don't like that my
Well I'm gonna say to you
