____Intro: Harp


____Verse: 1

 D         Am         Em7                  Bm7      E7
 Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins 
 A(11)                A9
 Silently closing her bedroom door, 
 A(11)                     A9
 leaving the note that she hoped would say more 
          D   Am            Em7                   Bm          E7
 She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching her handkerchief 
 A(11)                A9
 Quietly turning the back door key 
 A(11)                   A9
 stepping outside she is free 

____Chorus: 1

 She (we gave her most of our lives) 
 is leaving (sacrificed most of our lives) 
 home (we gave her everything money could buy) 
 Bm                       E7                  Bm        E9
 She's leaving home after living alone for so many years
                                   (bye bye) 

____Verse: 2

 D      Am            Em7                Bm7          E7
 Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown 
 A(11)                      A9
 Picks up the letter that's lying there 
 A(11)                 A9
 standing alone at the top of the stairs 
            D        Am           Em7
 she breaks down and cries to her husband 
             Bm          E7
 "Daddy, our baby's gone" 
 A(11)                     A9
 Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly?
 A(11)                    A9
 How could she do this to me?

____Chorus: 2

 She (We never thought of ourselves) 
 is leaving (never a thought for ourselves) 
 home (we struggled hard all our lives to get by) 
 Bm                       E7                  Bm        E9
 She's leaving home after living alone for so many years
                                   (bye bye)

____Verse: 3

 D      Am         Em7                 Bm7     E7
 Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away 
 A(11)                  A9
 waiting to keep the appointment she made 
 A(11)                  A9
 meeting a man from the motor trade 

____Chorus: 3

 She (what did we do that was wrong) 
 is having (we didn't know it was wrong) 
 fun (fun is the one thing that money can't buy) 
 Bm                        E7                   Bm7       E7
 Something inside that was always denied for so many years
                                     (bye bye)
 Bm            E7        G   D 
 She's leaving home (bye bye)
