Chorus 1:

G
 Farewell is,
  Em
A lonely sound
     Am7
When told to,
            D
Someone you love.
You know you,

 Hurt inside

You must leave,

The one you love.

G
 Saying goodbye,
   Bm          Em
To someone you love.
      Am7          D7
Is so hard for any man.
            G
You say its just,
For a while,
        Bm      Em
And you force a smile,
        Am7
And you hope,
             D7
She'll under-stand.

       G
Then a tear,
        Bm     Em
Appears in her eyes,
       Am7
As she tightly,
           D7
Holds your hand.
         G
Then you let her know,
         Bm      Em
That its time to go,
         Am7
you must leave,
          D7
While you can.
Oh but;

Chorus 2:

G
 Farewell is,
  Em
A lonely sound
     Am7
When told to,
            D
Someone you love.
You know you,
G
 Hurt inside
       Em
As you wonder why,
         C
You must leave,
    D       G
The one you love.

'Cos a man,

Should never cry.
