This is what I heard... not sure about the two lines about "putty" and "facts"... ot the first three words - "hope it be", "hope maybe"?  Not sure

Love this song...

To Go Home

C      G       F       C
Hope it be my mind wonít slip
Sailing on a sinking ship
Into the sunset and back
Dark night on a long highway
Little lights in the houses say
Somebodyís staying up late

F     G      C       F
Oh Ė Iíll be true to you
Oh yeah, you know I will
Iíll be true to you forever or until
I go home

If I ever treated you mean
You know that it was only because
I was sorry I couldnít have you for my own
I guess itís sort of funny now
Sort of like a plastic putty
Imagination will twist it with the facts

Oh Ė Iíll be true to you
Oh yeah, you know I will
Iíll be true to you forever or until
I go home

I have a deep respect for you
Usually reserved for the dead
Hanging on every word that you said
So nice to have a friend like you
Even though youíre not around
Youíre closer to me than most
Kids say the darndest things
Although hopes and golden dreams
Leave everything empty in the end

Oh Ė Iíll be true to you
Oh yeah, you know I will
Iíll be true to you forever or until
I go home

Hope it be my mind donít slip
Sailing on a sinking ship
Into the sunset and back
Gee, itís great to be alive
Takes the skin right off my hide
To think Iíll have to give it all up some day

Oh Ė but Iíll be true to you
Oh yeah, you know I will
Iíll be true to you forever or until
I go home

Excellent stuff - I love this song too, one of my very favourits. A couple of alternate readings on my part - not too sure about them, as I don't have the song at hand at the moment:

Hope it be my mind wonít slip

Hope baby my mind don't slip (not sure about this one myself - perhaps 'maybe' makes the most sense)

Sort of like a plastic putty
Imagination will twist it with the facts


Sort of like a plastic bunny
Imagination all twisted with the facts

Although hopes and golden dreams

Hollow hopes and golden dreams
