GOODBYE STRANGER – SUPERTRAMP

INTRO:
(Vintage Electric Piano – 120bpm)
Ab     Ab     Ab     Ab

VERSE 1:
Ab (1/2 bar)              Abº
  It was an early morning yesterday.
Db/Ab                     Ab
  I was up before the dawn.
Ab (1/2 bar)              Abº
  And I really have     enjoyed my stay.
Db/Ab                     Ab
 But I must be moving on.

BRIDGE 1:
(+E Guitar +Bass +Drums)
       Ab7/Gb
Like a king without a castle.
       Fm7
Like a queen without a throne.
       Db
I'm an early morning lover.
       Bbm7
And I  must be moving on.

VERSE 2:
Ab                        Ab
(EP + Light Drums)
Ab (1/2 bar)              Abº
  Now I believe in       what you say,
Db/Ab                     Ab
  Is the undisputed truth.
Ab (1/2 bar)              Abº
But I have to have things my own way,
Db/Ab                     Ab
  To keep me in my youth.

BRIDGE 2:
(+E Guitar +Bass +Organ)
       Ab7/Gb
Like a ship without an anchor.
       Fm7
Like a slave without a chain.
       Db
Just the thought of those sweet ladies,
       Bbm7
Sends a shiver through my veins.

       Ab
   And I will go on shining.
       Ab7/Gb
       Shining like brand new.
       Db
  I'll never look behind me.
       Bbm7
    My troubles will be few.

  Goodbye stranger      it's been nice.
Db                     Bbm  Eb7
  Hope you find your    paradise.
Ab                     Ab7/Gb
  Tried to see your     point of view.
Db                     Bbm       Eb7
  Hope your dreams will all come true.

Ab                     Ab7/Gb
  Goodbye Mary,         goodbye Jane.
Db                     Bbm    Eb7
  Will we ever          meet again?

  Feel no sorrow,       feel no shame.
Db                     Bbm      Eb7
  Come tomorrow,        feel no pain.

             Ab                  Ab7/Gb
 Now sweet devotion   is not for me.
              Goodbye Mary,       Goodbye Jane.
             Db                  Bbm    Eb7
Just give me motion    to set me free.
              Will we ever        meet again?

                    Ab                   Ab7/Gb
In the land and the ocean           far away,
                     Feel no sorrow,      feel no shame.
                    Db                   Bbm      Eb7
 It's the life I've chosen,        every day.
                     Come tomorrow,       feel no pain.

             Ab                  Ab+/C
 So, goodbye Mary,       goodbye Jane.
              Goodbye Mary,       Goodbye Jane.
             Fm                  Ab7/Gb
     Will we ever          meet again?
              Will we ever        meet again?

Ab                        Ab
(EP + Light Drums +E Guitar)
Ab (1/2 bar)              Abº
  Now some they do and    some they don't,
Db/Ab                     Ab
  And some you just can't tell.
Ab (1/2 bar)              Abº
  And some they will and  some they won't.
Db/Ab                     Ab
  For some it's just as   well.

BRIDGE 3:
(+Bass +Organ)
        Ab7/Gb
You can laugh at my behaviour.
        Fm7
That'll never bother me.
        Db
Say the Devil is my saviour.
        Bbm7
    But I don't pay no heed.

       Ab
   And I will go on shining.
       Ab7/Gb
       Shining like brand new.
       Db
  I'll never look behind me.
       Bbm7
    My troubles will be few.
