[Intro]: G5 [ch]G5/F#[/ch] [ch]G5/E[/ch] [ch]G5/F#[/ch] x2

G5 [ch]G5/F#[/ch]              [ch]G5/E[/ch]      [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
Oh no, here comes that sun again
G5                [ch]G5/F#[/ch]        [ch]G5/E[/ch]          [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
That means another day, without you my friend
      G5          [ch]G5/F#[/ch]         [ch]G5/E[/ch]        [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
And it hurts me to look into the mirror at myself
G5               [ch]G5/F#[/ch]            [ch]G5/E[/ch]             [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
And it hurts even more, to have to be with somebody else

      [ch]G5/C[/ch]         [ch]G5/B[/ch]       [ch]G5/A[/ch]       G5
And it's so hard to do, and so easy to say
   [ch]G5/C[/ch]         [ch]G5/B[/ch]             [ch]G5/A[/ch]             G5
But sometimes, sometimes you just have to walk away
[ch]G5/C[/ch] [ch]G5/B[/ch] [ch]G5/A[/ch] [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
Walk away

G5              [ch]G5/F#[/ch] [ch]G5/E[/ch]            [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
With so many people to love in my life
  G5       [ch]G5/F#[/ch]   [ch]G5/E[/ch] [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
Why do I worry about one
     G5        [ch]G5/F#[/ch] [ch]G5/E[/ch]  [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
But you put the happy in my ness
 G5             [ch]G5/F#[/ch]      [ch]G5/E[/ch]   [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
You put the good times into my fun

      [ch]G5/C[/ch]         [ch]G5/B[/ch]       [ch]G5/A[/ch]       G5
And it's so hard to do, and so easy to say
   [ch]G5/C[/ch]         [ch]G5/B[/ch]             [ch]G5/A[/ch]             G5
But sometimes, sometimes you just have to walk away
     [ch]G5/C[/ch] [ch]G5/B[/ch]             [ch]G5/A[/ch] [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
Walk away, and head for the door

Am               Em    G5       D/F#
We've tried the goodbye so many days
        Am             Em              G5               D/F#
We walk in the same direction, so that we could never stray
      Am                  Em                  G5              D/F#
They say if you love somebody, then you have got to set them free
    Am                 Em                 D/F#                     G5 [ch]G5/F#[/ch] [ch]G5/E[/ch] [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
But I would rather be locked to you, than live in this pain and misery

G5      [ch]G5/F#[/ch]         [ch]G5/E[/ch]           [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
They say time will make all this go away
          G5                     [ch]G5/F#[/ch]        [ch]G5/E[/ch]                  [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
But it's time that has taken my tomorrows, and turned them into yesterdays
G5       [ch]G5/F#[/ch]            [ch]G5/E[/ch]               [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
And once again that rising sun is dropping on down
    G5        [ch]G5/F#[/ch]           [ch]G5/E[/ch]      [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
And once again you my friend are nowhere to be found

      [ch]G5/C[/ch]         [ch]G5/B[/ch]       [ch]G5/A[/ch]       G5
And it's so hard to do, and so easy to say
   [ch]G5/C[/ch]           [ch]G5/B[/ch]           [ch]G5/A[/ch]             G5
But sometimes, sometimes you just have to walk away
     [ch]G5/C[/ch] [ch]G5/B[/ch]             [ch]G5/A[/ch] G5
Walk away, and head for the door
              [ch]G5/C[/ch] [ch]G5/B[/ch] [ch]G5/A[/ch] [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
You just walk away
       G5 [ch]G5/F#[/ch] [ch]G5/E[/ch] [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
Walk away
       G5 [ch]G5/F#[/ch] [ch]G5/E[/ch] [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
Walk away
             G5     [ch]G5/F#[/ch]                    [ch]G5/E[/ch] [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
Just walk on, walk on, turn and head for the door
            G5 [ch]G5/F#[/ch] [ch]G5/E[/ch] [ch]G5/F#[/ch]
Just walk away
