[Verse 1]  
       Cadd9                C              E4                Em
Nobody can't forget this evening, or your face as you were leaving,
        Dm                    Dm7           E7sus4   E7
But, I guess, that's just the way the story goes,
      E7+   Am                Am/G               D/F#
You always smile, but in your eyes, your sorrow shows,
        Cadd9  C  Cadd9  C      G9/A  G9  G9/A  G9
Yes, it shows---------------! |  /    /    /    /  |


[Verse 2]
      Cadd9               C              E4              Em
No, I can't forget to - morrow, when I think of all my sorrow,
       Dm                  Dm7           E7sus4  E7
When I had you there, but then I let you go,
     E7+      Am           Am/G              D/F#
And now it's only fair that I should let you know,
                Cadd9  C  Cadd9  C   G7sus4  G7/B  G9/A  G7/B
What you should know-----------------------------------------!

[Chorus]
         C         Am                   A4  Am
I can't live, if living is without you,
         Dm          G7sus4       G7
I can't live, I can't give any - more,
         C         Am                   A4  Am
I can't live, if living is without you,
         Dm          G7sus4       G7
I can't give, I can't give any - more-----!

        Cadd9                C              E4                Em
Well, I can't forget this evening, or your face as you were leaving,
        Dm                    Dm7           E7sus4   E7
But, I guess, that's just the way the story goes,
     E7+    Am                Am/G              D/F#
You always smile, but in your eyes, your sorrow shows,
        Cadd9  C  Cadd9  C      G9/A  G9  G9/A  G9
Yes, it shows---------------! |  /    /    /    /  |


[Chorus]
         C             Am                   A4  Am
I can't live----, if living is without you,
         Dm          G7sus4       G7
I can't live, I can't give any - more,
         C             Am                   A4  Am
I can't live----, if living is without you,
         Dm          G7sus4       G7    C
I can't live, I can't give any - more-------,
     Am                   A4  Am    Dm            G7sus4  G7
If living is without you!        |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /   /  /  |

At least as far as my ears can tell me, this is spot on, and for sure the best of the three versions available here.

Thanks, Mac, I try my best, so that's real kind of you to say. Don't know about you, but I play this song without the capo, as playing in C is the only way I can sing those high notes. What an astounding vocal range Harry Nilsson had to sing this in E!

Thanks for these chords! I've been playing the song with the typical E - C#m - A - Ab progression but couldn't figure out all the notes that are played on the piano. Playing along to it with these chords it does sound the way it should. 5 stars!
