When You Leave		LW111

LW111 plays with capo on the 5th fret. There is a deal of hammering on during the chord 
(Not sure about the C after the F in the Break).The D at the end of each couplet is D 
then Dsus4

G		     Em
You left for camp, you left for school
Am/C		                 D
Left for the coast when that was cool then
G               Em
You left women, one a wife
Am/C		             D
To save your skin you wrecked a life and
Am		   C
then there's kids its not just one
G            		    D
life that you wreck you're on the run
Am		C
You go to town to start anew
G     		D
those you left come after you
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/l/loudon-wainwright-iii/192086.html ]
G                    Em
Its what you think its how you feel
C		      D
though who can say if its all real
G                  Em
The darndest thing kids grow up
Am/C		           D
One day some strange adults show up
G                     Em
The ones you left are right in town
Am/C		        D
thatís nice you say they'll be around
Am		C
perhaps they just a bit bereft but
G        		D
they'll forgive the one who left
Am		     C
sad stories can have happy ends
G        		D
perhaps now you can just be friends
G                     Em
Its what you want its how you feel
Am/C		          D
whats more you hope your theory's real
(Break)
F		           C
Who would have thought or could believe
G         		D
Things go so badly when you leave
F		       C
the skin you saved is growing slack and
G        	      D
those you left don't want you back

(Instrumental)
G		     Em
Your power's gone it was pro tem
Am/C		         D
The wife you left meant more to them
G		       Em
Its not just that they side with her
Am/C		      D
you left and who knew where you were
Am		C
The reason that they came to town
G		      D
was just to make that place their own
Am		   C
You realised your greatest fear
G	             D
you are so close but hardly here
G      		           Em
It's what you think   it's how you feel
Am/C		D
and what's worse is you know its real
