Tabbed by LightningLucas

[Intro]
G G Em D G

[Verse 1]
G                                             
I packed up your things and we loaded your ride 
   Em                        D      G
So you could run away off to African skies.
G                                              
Held me close and kissed me one last time,
     Em                               D     G
Then made me promise everything would be all right.
G                             
A lump in my throat, tears in my eyes,
           Em                       D     G
Yeah, I've always had problems with saying goodbyes.

[Interlude]
G G Em D G

[Verse 2]
G
You hit me up an hour into your drive
    Em                            D         G
And told me of the news that your mother had died.
G      
I raced to the Dalles just to be by your side,
Em                               D       G
Surrounded by the nurses and the hospital white.
G      
I couldn't do a thing while you sat there and cried,
          Em                       D     G
Yeah I've always had problems with saying goodbyes.

[Chorus]
Em             C              G                    D
May you find a great reason to greet the world every day and rise.
Em                    C              G                     D   G
And as you watch them trains leaving, have the strength to say goodbye.

[Interlude]
G G Em D G

[Verse 3]
G
I lost some friends and family from my tribe.
     Em                               D        G
Some people moved away, and some went into the light.
G
I tried to hold on and keep them fresh in my mind,
         Em                           D         G
But they all turn to shadows with the passing of time.
G
I see what we had falling in line,
          Em                       D     G
Yeah I've always had problems with saying goodbyes.

[Verse 4]
G
I call you at 6, you answer at 9.
     Em                       D    G
It's hard to keep up when I'm hours behind.
G
Further and further, moving out of my life.
           Em                       D     G
Yeah, I've always had problems with saying goodbyes.

[Four-beat pause]

[Verse 5]
G
I lost some friends and family from my tribe.
     Em                               D       G
Some people moved away, and some went into the light.
G
I tried to hold on and keep them fresh in my mind,
         Em                           D         G
But they all turn to shadows with the passing of time.
G
I see what we had falling in line,
         Em                       D     G
Oh, I've always had problems with saying goodbyes.

[Outro]
G
I see what we had, fallin’ in line, oh,
     Em                       D     G
I’ve always had problems with sayin’ goodbye.
     Em                       D     G
I’ve always had problems with sayin’ goodbye.
     Em                       D     G
I’ve always had problems with sayin’ goodbye.
