Verse 1

G               Riff 1
Fare thee well my brother
                         A
please don't stand in my way
G                       D
I'm going down to that dirty town
    A
no matter what you say
    G              Riff 1
You fooled me and you ruled me
                        A
and you played in every part
        G           D
I gotta go, it's no use me stayin' home

G                Riff 1
Goodbye my sister
               A
please don't let me see you cry
 G                D 
Gonna be a star some day
                   A
no matter what they say
    G                Riff 1
And when you hear the crowds
                  A
all callin' and shouting out my name
      G               D
until then, my little friend, I'll be unsatisfied

 G            Riff 1
So long sweet Melinda
            A
don't forget that you're my girl
       G
Gonna dress you fine
            D           
and if you give me time
          A
make you proud like I said I would
             G                 Riff 1
And if the Champs Elysee's no fallacy
               A
If I find the world looks like it should
       G                            D
Candy cars, movie stars, street bars

then I could stay a while
            
        G    D
Well I love you
          A
Shall I write or phone from Paris or Rome
          G            D
and I'll miss you all
       A
even tho' you're tryin' to hold me back

Small Break: D

Farewell all my family

                         D
Please appreciate I must make a break

just to see what I can do
      G               Riff 1
The stage is set so understand

I can't hide in the wings no more
           G          
I've got to go now it's no use me staying home

                    G    D
All I can say is I love you
        A
Shall I write or phone from Paris or Rome
        G                     D
And I think I'm always gonna miss you
