Capo - fret 2

E7 D/F# G           D/F#    A/E             
Am7 Unfaithful Servant, I hear you leavin' soon in the mornin'
G D/F# E7 A7sus4 What did you do to the lady, that she's gonna have to send you away?
G D/F# A/E Am7 Unfaithful servant, you don't have to say you're sorry,
G D/F# E7 Asus4 If you done it just for the spite, or did ya do it just for the glory?
Bm/G# A/F# Like a stranger you turned your back,
Am7/E G F#7Left your keys and gone to pack.
Bm Gm6Bear in mind who's to blame, and all the shame;
E7 Em7 Ebmaj7 She really cared, the time she spared and the home you shared.
Unfaithful servant, I can hear the whistle blowin, Yes, that train is a-comin' and soon you'll be goin'. Let us not bow our heads for we won't be complainin'; Life has been good to us all even when that sky is rainin'. To take it like a grain of salt is all I can do. It's no one's fault, Makes no diff'rence if we fade away. It's just as it was, it's much to cold for me to stay.
G D/F# Goodbye to that country home,
A/E Am7 So long to a lady I have known,
G D/F# Farewell to my other side,
E7 A7sus4 I'd best just take it in stride.
G D/F# A/E Am7 Unfaithful Servant, you'll learn to find your place;
G D/F# I can see it in your smile,
E7 A7sus4 and, yes, I can see it in your face.
Bm/G# A/F# The mem'ries will linger on,
Am7/E G F#7 But the good old days, they're all gone,
Bm Gm6Oh! Lonesome servant, can't you see,
E7 Em7 Ebmaj7 That we're still one and the same, just you and me.
