I Can?t Find the Words To Say Goodbye
(David Gates)
 Intro : A+9-Esus4-C#m-D-Bm-F#m-E7 

[A+9]Can?t [Esus4]say I don?t l[C#m]ove [D]her
S[Bm]till I c[Esus4]an?t pre[A]tend
And my [A]heart is [Esus4]torn just kno[C#m]wing [D]that
I?m los[Bm]ing [F#m]my best [E7]friend
[A]If it's [Esus4]easier [C#m]said and d[D]one
Then someo[A]ne [C#m]tell me [D]why
Though I t[Bm]ry,
I can?t [E]find the words to [E7]say goodb[A-Esus4-C#m-D]ye
I could [A+9]tell her [Esus4]that I?m [C#m]sor-[D]ry
And [Bm]hope she?ll [Esus4]unders[A]tand
She will [A]have to [Esus4]do with some[C#m]one [D]else
[Bm]All that [F#m]we have [E7]planned
[A] I?d [Esus4]rather her [C#m]hear the [D]truth
Than [A]hurt her [C#m]with a [D]lie
So I [Bm]tried,
But I can?t [E]find the words to [E7]say good[A]bye
Now [C#m]I [D]know
I [C#m]have to [F#m]go
[Bm]Theres no [F#m]other [E7]way
But [C#m]goodb[D]ye is [C#m]not what [F#m]I can [Bm]bring [F#m]myself to s[E7-E-E7-E]ay...
If [A+9]I told her "[Esus4]see you [C#m-D]la--ter"
[Bm]Then I [Esus4]might be [A]wrong
cause this v[A]oice [Esus4]inside is [C#m]driving [D]me
To [Bm]find [F#m]where I be[Esus4]long
[A] I [C#m]know I must [D]leave her now
but [A]every t[C#m]ime I t[D]ry
Don?t know [Bm]why,
I but I can?t [E7]find the words to say goodb[A]ye-[F#m]--
Don?t know [Bm]why,
I can?t [E]find the words to [E7]say good[A]bye
