TITLE: She's Leaving Home
Lyrics and Chords

[ Gm6 = xx0330; Dm6 = xx0201 ]

Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more
She goes downstairs to the kitchen
Clutching her handkerchief
Quietly turning the backdoor key
Stepping outside she is free

/ C Gm Dm7 - Am7 - D7 - / Dm7 - Dm6 - / / :

   We gave her most of our lives
Is leaving
   Sacrificed most of our lives
   We gave her everything money could buy
She's leaving home after living alone for so many years
   Bye, bye

/ C - - - / / C - Gm6 - / Am - D7 - Am7 - D7 - /

Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown
Picks up the letter that's lying there
Standing alone at the top of the stairs
She breaks down and cries to her husband
Daddy, our baby's gone
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly
How could she do this to me

   We never thought of ourselves
Is leaving
   Never a thought for ourselves
   We struggled hard all our lives to get by
She's leaving home after living alone for so many years
   Bye, bye

Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
Meeting a man from the motor trade

   What did we do that was wrong
Is having
   We didn't know it was wrong
   Fun is the one thing that money can't buy
Something inside that was always denied for so many years
   Bye, bye
She's leaving home, bye bye

... / C - D7 - F - C - /
