D         Am         Em                  Bm         E7
Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins,
A11                  A7
silently closing her bedroom door,
A11                       A7
leaving the note that she hoped would say more,
         D   Am            Em
she goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching
    Bm           E7
her handkerchief.
A11                 A7            A11
Quietly turning the backdoor key, stepping outside 
she is free.
She (We gave her most of our lives.)

Is leaving (Sacrificed most of our lives.)
                  Am                     Bm
Home (We gave her everything money could buy.)
She's leaving home after living alone 
    Bm            E7
for so many years.

D      Am            Em                 Bm            E7 
Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown.
A11                       A7
Picks up the leter that's lying there,
A11                   A7
standing alone at the top of the stairs,
           D        Am           Em
she breaks down and cries to her husband,
            Bm           E7
'Daddy, our baby's gone.'
A11                       A7
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly?
A11                      A7
How could she do this to me?
She (We never thought of ourselves.

is leaving (Never a thought for ourselves.)
                   Am                        Bm
home (We struggled hard all our lives to get by.)
She's leaving home after living alone 
    Bm            E7
for so many years. 

D      Am         Em                  Bm
Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away,
A11                 A7
Waiting to keep the appointment she made.
A11                    A7
Meeting a man from the motor trade.
She (What did we do that was wrong?)

Is having (We didn't know it was wrong.)
                Am                         Bm
Fun (Fun is the one thing that money can't buy.)
                          E7                 Bm
Something inside that was always denied, for so many years.
              E7          G   D
She's leaving home...bye, bye.
