Verse 1:
 E         Bm         F#m7
Wednesday morning at five o'clock
        C#m7      F#7
as the day begins
 B11                  B9
Silently closing her bedroom door
 B11                       B9
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more

          E    Bm           F#m7
She goes downstairs to the kitchen
               C#m         F#7
clutching her handkerchief
  B11                B9
Quietly turning the backdoor key
  B11                     B9  B7
Stepping outside she is free

She (We gave her most of our lives)
    E
Is leaving (Sacrificed most of our lives)

Home (We gave her ev'rything money could buy)
                           F#7

for so many years

her dressing gown,
 B11                        B9
Picks up the letter that's lying there
  B11                  B9
Standing alone at the top of the stairs

            E        Bm           F#m7
She breaks down and cries to her husband
            C#m          F#7
"Daddy our baby's gone!"
  B11                       B9
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly?
 B11                      B9  B7
How could she do this to me?

Waiting to keep the appointment she made
 B11                    B9         B7
Meeting a man from the motor trade

She (What did we do that was wrong?)

Is having (We didn't know it was wrong)
