to the song for timing.
Bm F#m (x2)
[G] [A]  
[Bm]Sitting in a [F#m]Dixon garden,[Bm] wishing that [F#m]you and I weren't parting
For the l[G]ast time, the l[A]ast time
And I said,[Bm] "Why you want to get [F#m]married anyway?[Bm] That man's got a [F#m]family"
And then you say,[G] "Couldn't wait on you f[A]orever, or could I?"
[Bm] "Guess not"[F#m]
[Bm] [F#m]  
[Bm]There's an awkward [F#m]silence for the first time[Bm], so many year[F#m]s
[Bm]And as I recall you [F#m]used to be mine, not some p[G]roperty of h[A]is
And I sing [Bm]"Ah la don'[F#m]t go, [Bm]ah la st[F#m]ay
[Bm]Ah la don't[F#m] go, [G]don't go a[Bm]way."[F#m]
[Bm] [F#m]  
[Bm]Maybe [F#m]I should apologize,[Bm] for I treated you[F#m] so
[Bm]And I'm so s[F#m]orry that I left you [G]here, I just w[A]ish I could have known
You say,[Bm] "You never can [F#m]tell, an[Bm]d it's not your[F#m] fault
[Bm]See these things just ha[F#m]ppen when you're dealing [G]with the hands on a [A]clock of a woman"
Bm F#m (x2)
[Bm]"And he treats me[F#m] fine, and an[Bm]yways I'm getting [F#m]older"
She said, "[Bm]Oh but I still [F#m]miss you sometimes,[G] when the weather's getting [A]colder"
And she sang [Bm]"Ah la don'[F#m]t go, [Bm]ah la st[F#m]ay
[Bm]Ah la don't[F#m] go, [G]don't go a[Bm]way."[F#m]
[Bm] [F#m]  
e5^e7 e5 B7 B7 G7 e5 e5^e7 e5 B7 B7
e5^e7 e5 B7 B7 B7 B7^B8 B8 B8\B7 B7 B5^B7 B5 B5^B7 B7 B5^B7
[Bm]Do we say [F#m]goodbye,[Bm] or just see you [F#m]later?
She said "D[Em]on't make me [F#m]cry,
'Cause it's [G]enough just to [F#m]know
That I won't [G]ever hold you [F#m]close
And I won't [G]ever smell your [F#m]skin,
And I k[G]now how I'm supposed to feel,
[A]Here we go again singing,[Bm] "Ah la [F#m]don't go,[Bm] ah la st[F#m]ay
[Bm]Ah la don't[F#m] go, [G]don't go aw[Bm]ay."[F#m]
