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.

A: 577655  Dm/A: x03230  A7sus: 575755  D: x57775  E VII.: x7999x
Em7: 020030  F7: 131211

          Em7     A          Em7         A          Em7      A          C#m
I take a step outside and I breathe the air  And I slam the door and I'm on
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        x4343x   F#m         xx0630 xx0230 G
And I won't look back  I've turned my back to those endless games.

The second verse is the same except :
         Bm7           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.                        x7999x x79797/slide down
Leavin' home ain't easy (Oh I never thought it would be easy)
Leavin' all  you  own (Oh there's a million things 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)


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 
                                 (these chords are not transcribed,
                                  I just found out something)
