Capo - fret 2
[E7] [D/F#] [G] [D/F#] [A/E]  
[Am7] Unfaithful Servant, I hear you leavin' soon in the mornin'
[G] What did you [D/F#]do to the lady, [E7]that she's gonna have to s[A7sus4]end you away?
[G] Unfaithful [D/F#]servant,[A/E] you don't have to[Am7] say you're sorry,
[G] If you done it just[D/F#] for the spite,[E7] or did ya do it [Asus4]just for the glory?
[Bm/G#] Like a stranger y[A/F#]ou turned your back,
[Am7/E]Left your keys and go[G]ne to pack[F#7].
[Bm]Bear in mind who's to blame, [Gm6]and all the shame;
[E7] She really cared,[Em7] the time she spared[Ebmaj7] 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] Goodbye to that coun[D/F#]try home,
[A/E] So long to a lady I have k[Am7]nown,
[G] Farewell to my[D/F#] other side,
[E7] I'd best just [A7sus4]take it in stride.
[G] Unfaithful [D/F#]Servant,[A/E] you'll learn to [Am7]find your place;
[G] I can see it [D/F#]in your smile,
[E7] and, yes, I can see it [A7sus4]in your face.
[Bm/G#] The mem'ries [A/F#]will linger on,
[Am7/E] But the good old days, they're[G] all gon[F#7]e,
Oh! [Bm]Lonesome servant,[Gm6] can't you see,
[E7] That we're still one[Em7] and the same, [Ebmaj7]just you and me.
