This is one of the more straightforward Steely Dan tunes in terms
chord vs. bassline and all those funky Fagen keyboard voicings.
It's from the Aja album, and I think most Dan fans will find it
familiar and fun to play.

HOME AT LAST - Steely Dan                        |-6--3--------3--3--3-1-3--|
                                            Lick:|-6--3 ---6/--3--3--3-1-3--|
INTRO: |Gm7| x8bars                              |---------5/---------------|
       |Gm7| x8bars with horns and lick          |--------------------------|
* Vs.I *                                         |--------------------------|
| Ebmaj7       | Bbmaj7      |  
     I know this superhighway

| Ebmaj7       | Bbmaj7      |
     This bright, familiar sun

| Ebmaj7   D7#9| Gm7    Ab7  | Gm7 | Gm7 |
     I guess that I'm the lucky one

| Ebmaj7       | Bbmaj7      |
     Who wrote that tired sea song

| Ebmaj7       | Bbmaj7      |
     Set on this peaceful shore

| Ebmaj7    D7#9    |  Gm7      Ab7  |  Gm7  |   Gm7   |
     You think you've heard this one before 

* Chorus *

        | Cm7        |   Cm7          | Gm7 | Gm7 |           
Well the  danger on the rocks is surely past

|    Cm7        |   Cm7         |  Dm7  |  Dm7  |
     Still I remain tied to the mast

        |  Cm7         | Cm7           |  Bbmaj7  |  Bbmaj7  | 
Could it be that I have found my home at last

                |  Ebmaj7  |  Ebmaj7  |  Ebmaj7  |  Ebmaj7   | 
     Home at last    (Horn Lick)

| Gm7 | x8bars

* Vs.II *
     She serves the smooth retsina
     She keeps me safe and warm
     It's just the calm before the storm
     Call in my reservation
     So long, hey thanks my friend
     I guess I'll try my luck again

* Chorus * plus | Gm7 | x8bars

* Synth Solo *  | F11 | F11 | F11 | F11 | (1/4 rest) A7 |

                | Dm7 Ab13 | Db7 | D7 |                     

                | Gm7 | x8bars                              

* Guitar Solo over Vs.I * 

* Chorus *

* Solo out on Gm7 *

The 'Synth Solo' part is tough to make sense of without someone
actually playing the solo along with you. Try playing it with the 
album to get the feel... I'm fairly certain the chords are correct.
