Goodbye, Eddie, Goodbye
Paul Williams

Performed by Juicy Fruits (Phantom of the Paradise)

G                  Em
We'll remember you forever Eddie
C                             Eb
Thru' the sacrifice you made we can't believe the price you paid
G
For love

G
Little Eddie Mitty born in Jersey City
Em
Started singin' when he was five
C
Never knew his father mother didn't bother
D
To catch his last name fast as he came

G
He was off and flying, Times were really trying
Em
Eddie and his mother alone
C
Soon another mister soon a baby sister
D
Mama kept swingin' and Eddie kept singin'

Chorus : G Em C D
Ah ya ya ya ya ya
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
                 G
Ya ya ya ya for love for love

G
And now the tragic story
G                            Em
Eddie's sister, Mary Louise, needed an operation
C                                           D
To get the money he would have to become an overnight sensation
G
Eddie believed the American people
Em
Had wonderful, lovegiving hearts
C
His well publicized end he considered would send
D                                                     G
His memorial album to the top of the charts... and it did

Chorus : G Em C D, ends with Eb and G

G                           Em
When a young singer dies to our shock and surprise
C                          D
In a plane crash or flashy sports car
G
He becomes quite well known
Em                          C                      D
And the kindness he's shown has made more than one post mortem star
G              Em                  C                    D
Well you did it Eddie and though it's hard to applaud suicide
G                       Em             C               
You gave all you could give so your sister could live
D
All America's choked up inside

G                          Em
We'll remember you forever Eddie
C                                           Eb
Thru' the sacrifice you made we can't believe the price you paid
G
For love
