She's Leaving Home  The Beatles

She's Leaving Home:The Beatles.
Top of the charts in '67. Album - Sgt.
Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

[D]Wednesday [Am]morning at [Em]five o'clock as the [Bm]day begins,[E7]
[A11]silently closing her [A7]bedroom door,
[A11]leaving the note that she [A7]hoped would say more,
she goes [D]down[Am]stairs to the [Em]kitchen clutching
her [Bm]handkerchief.[E7]
[A11]Quietly turning the [A7]backdoor key, [A11]stepping outside
she is [A7]free.
[D]She (We gave her most of our lives.)
Is leaving (Sacrificed most of our lives.)
Home (We gave her [Am]everything money could [Bm]buy.)
She's leaving home after [E7]living alone
for [Bm]so many years.[E7]

[D]Father [Am]snores as his [Em]wife gets into her [Bm]dressing gown.[E7]
[A11]Picks up the leter that's [A7]lying there,
[A11]standing alone at the [A7]top of the stairs,
she breaks [D]down and [Am]cries to her [Em]husband,
'Daddy, our [Bm]baby's gone.'[E7]
[A11]Why would she treat us so [A7]thoughtlessly?
[A11]How could she do this to [A7]me?
[D]She (We never thought of ourselves.
is leaving (Never a thought for ourselves.)
home (We struggled [Am]hard all our lives to get [Bm]by.)
She's leaving home after [E7]living alone
for [Bm]so many years.[E7]

[D]Friday [Am]morning at [Em]nine o'clock she is [Bm]far away,
[A11]Waiting to keep the [A7]appointment she made.
[A11]Meeting a man from the [A7]motor trade.
[D]She (What did we do that was wrong?)
Is having (We didn't know it was wrong.)
Fun (Fun is the [Am]one thing that money can't [Bm]buy.)
Something inside that was [E7]always denied, for [Bm]so many years.
She's leaving [E7]home...bye, [G]bye.[D]
A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
