E         Bm         Gbm                 Dbm        
Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins 
Gbm                  A6
Silently closing her bedroom door
Gbm                       A6
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more

         E   Bm            Gbm                 Dbm
She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching a handkerchief
Gbm                 A6
Quietly turning the backdoor key
Gbm                     A
Stepping outside she is free

She - we gave her most of our lives

Is leaving - sacrificed most of our lives
E                  E7         E           Dbm
Home - We gave her everything money could buy
Dbm                       Gbm                 Dbm
She is leaving home after living alone for so many years

E      Bm            Gbm                Dbm
Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown,
Gbm                        A6
Picks up the letter that's lying there.
Gbm                   A6
Standing alone at the top of the stairs,

           E        Bm           Gbm                Dbm
She breaks down and cries to her husband Daddy our baby's gone.
Gbm                       A6
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly?
Gbm                      A
How could she do this to me?

She - we never thought of ourselves
Is leaving - never a thought for ourselves
E                   E7           E            Dbm
Home - we struggled hard all our lives to get by
Dbm                      Gbm                 Dbm
She's leaving home after living alone for so many years

E      Bm         Gbm                 Dbm
Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away
Gbm                  A6   
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
Gbm       A6           A
Meeting a man from the motor trade

She - what did we do that was wrong? 
Is having - we didn't know it was wrong
E                E7             E           Dbm
Fun - fun is the one thing that money can't buy
Dbm                       Gbm                  Dbm      Gbm
Something inside that was always denied for so many years
Dbm           Gbm       A    E
She's leaving home  bye bye
