...FAREWELL IS A LONELY SOUND... by Jimmy Ruffin
--------------------------------................

*Released 1970*


*CAPO 1st FRET*

(Original Key: Ab)


Intro:

G                Dm
 (Farewell, fare-well my love),
Bb               D
 (Farewell, fare-well my love).

Chorus 1:

G              Em                 Am7                 D
 Farewell is a lonely sound, when told to someone you love.
             G                   Em
You know you hurt inside, as you wonder why,
         C         D       G
You must leave the one you love.

Verse 1:

G                  Bm          Em          Am7          D
 Saying goodbye to someone you love, is so hard for any man.
            G                         Bm      Em
You say its just for a while, and you force a smile,
        Am7               D7
And you hope she'll under-stand.

       G            Bm     Em           Am7                D
Then a tear appears in her eyes, as she tightly holds your hand.
         G                       Bm      Em
Then you let her know, that it's time to go,
         Am7             D7
You must leave while you can. Oh but;

Chorus 2:

G              Em                 Am7                 D
 Farewell is a lonely sound, when told to someone you love.
             G                   Em
You know you hurt inside, as you wonder why,
         C         D       G
You must leave the one you love.

Interlude:

G                Dm
 (Farewell, fare-well my love),
A#               D             D#
 (Farewell, fare-well my love).

*KEY CHANGE*

Verse 2:

G#                 Cm       Fm    A#m7                D#7
 With every silent step you take, each one hurts your heart.
       G#                   Cm       Fm
As you board the train, you feel the pain,
     A#m7             D#7
That starts as you de-part.

    G#                Cm       Fm          A#m7             D#7
You wipe your eyes so she cant see, 'cos a man should never cry.
            G#                     Cm     Fm
Now there's just the trace, of her crying face,
       A#m7             D#7
As you wave to her good-bye. That's why...

Chorus 3:

G#             Fm                 A#m7                D#7
 Farewell is a lonely sound, when told to someone you love.
             G#                  Fm
You know you hurt inside, as you wonder why,
         C#        D#      G#
You must leave the one you love.

Chorus 4:

G#             Fm                 A#m7                D#7
 Farewell is a lonely sound, when told to someone you love.
             G#                  Fm
You know you hurt inside, as you wonder why,
         C#        D#      G#
You must leave the one you love.

(Repeat to Fade)
