[Intro]
G Em C D
G Em C D
G

[Verse]
G                     D
I loved your home at Springfield
          C            Em
And your chauffer-drive Jag 
         C                G
But the afternoons at the yacht squadron
C             D
Really are a drag
      C               D
Your country home at Aldgate
       G              Em
Your horses and your friends
     C        D             G              Em
The alcoholic sunsets, the pleasure never ends
      C             D           G                       Em
I've just begun to notice the cold steel in your eyes

[Chorus]
C     D             Em
So I say to you goodbye
C      D               Em
As she goes on asking why

[Verse]
      G              D            
I've spoken to your father 
        C          Em
he's a self made millionaire
    C                  G
Do you know where his factories are?
    C                  D
Do you know who lives there?
     C             D                G             Em
In squashy little red-brick houses far away from here.
         C                D                G                 Em
They're ugly and they're all the same, the neighbours live so near
     C                D                 G                 Em
The way my famliy's living there you'd not believe your eyes

[Chorus]
C     D             Em
So I say to you goodbye
C      D               Em
As she goes on asking why

[Verse]
      G                  D  
Your brother's learning how to drive 
     C               Em
the jag in your back yard
       C              G
Your father sits and tells me 
       C                  D
about how he's worked so hard
      C             D               G           Em
Your mother's introducing me with patronising grace
   C                       D             G               Em
To all her bridge friends in the salon, little cakes and lace
   C                D                    G                Em
My mothers working nightshift now, she's working till she dies

[Chorus]
C     D             Em
So I say to you goodbye
C      D               Em
As she goes on asking why

[Interlude]
G Em C D x6
Em

[Verse]
      G                 D
Your fathers firm owns factories 
     C                 Em
not far from where we stay
     C                G
The chimneys spewing thick black smoke
  C                   D
Across the night and day
     C               D                    G                  Em
The people live and work down there underneath that cloud of smog
     C                   D                   G              Em
The kids' backyards are small and bare, too small to keep a dog
      C                 D                    G          Em
Dont tell me that they like it there, thats certainly a lie

[Chorus]
C     D             Em
So I say to you goodbye
C      D               Em
As she goes on asking why

[Verse]
G                         D
Please don't cry, you'll find a lover
C             Em
very soon I'm sure
   C                G
A gentleman who'll bring you roses 
     C                D
and lay them at your door
     C                   D                    G                 Em
It's not because you're rich, because you're not prepared to think
     C            D          G        Em
The higher daddy rises, the more his workers sink
      C                D           G          Em
You won't wake up in time my lady, you won't realise

[Chorus]
C     D             Em
So I say to you goodbye
C      D               Em
As she goes on asking why
