She s Leaving Home Chords
The Beatles *

E         Bm         F#m                 C#m        F#m
Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins 
G                    A
Silently closing her bedroom door
G                         A
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more

         E   Bm            F#m                 C#m
She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching a handkerchief
G                   A7
Quietly turning the backdoor key
G                       A7
Stepping outside she is free

She - we gave her most of our lives
Is leaving - sacrificed most of our lives
D                  F#m
Home - We gave her everything money could buy
C#m                       F#m                 C#m
She is leaving home after living alone for so many years

E      Bm            F#m                C#m
Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown,
G                          A7
Picks up the letter that's lying there.
G                     A7
Standing alone at the top of the stairs,
           E        Bm           F#m                C#m
She breaks down and cries to her husband Daddy our baby's gone.
G                         A7
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly?
G                        A7
How could she do this to me?

She - we never thought of ourselves
Is leaving - never a thought for ourselves
D                   F#m
Home - we struggled hard all our lives to get by
C#m                      F#m                 C#m
She's leaving home after living alone for so many years

E      Bm         F#m                 C#m
Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away
G                   A7   
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
G         A            A7
Meeting a man from the motor trade

She - what did we do that was wrong? 
Is having - we didn't know it was wrong
D                               F#m
Fun - fun is the one thing that money can't buy
C#m                       F#m                  C#m      F#m
Something inside that was always denied for so many years
C#m           F#m       A    E
She's leaving home  bye bye
