E         Bm         F#m     A   
Wednesday morning at five o'clock
       C#m7        F#
As the day begins    
A/B                  B           
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she
Hoped would say more
         E    Bm           F#m    
She goes downstairs to the kitchen
C#m7          C#m7/Ab       F#
Clutching her handkerchief    
A/B                 B           
Quietly turning the backdoor key
A/B                      B   
Stepping outside she is free.

She (We gave her most of our lives)
Is leaving (Sacrificed most of our lives)
E                 D                      C#m 
Home (We gave her everything money could buy)
She's leaving home after living alone
       C#m          F#
For so many years     

E      Bm            F#m      
Father snores as his wife gets
          C#m           F#
Into her dressing gown    
A/B                        B          
Picks up the letter that's lying there
A/B                   B                
Standing alone at the top of the stairs
           E         D           F#m    
She breaks down and cries to her husband
          C#m           F#
Daddy our baby's gone     
A/B                       B            
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly
A/B                      B  
How could she do this to me.

She (We never thought of ourselves)
Is leaving (Never a thought for ourselves)
E                  D                         C#m7
home (We struggled hard all our lives to get by) 
C#m7                     F#          
She's leaving home after living alone
       C#m7       F#
For so many years   

 E     Bm         F#m     C#m         C#m/Ab    F#
Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away    
A/B                  B                  
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
A/B                    B          
Meeting a man from the motor trade
C#m7 A/B E E x4

She (What did we do that was wrong)
Is having (We didn't know it was wrong)
E               D                          C#m7
Fun (Fun is the one thing that money can't buy)
C#m7                      F#           
Something inside that was always denied
       C#m7        F#
For so many years    
C#m7          F#           A     E
She's leaving home    bye, bye    

E E C#m7 A/B x4
