Capo - fret 2

E7 D/F# G           D/F#    A/E             
   Am7
         Unfaithful Servant, I hear you leavin' soon in the mornin'
G             D/F#            E7                        A7sus4
 What did you do to the lady, that she's gonna have to send you away?
G           D/F#    A/E               Am7
 Unfaithful servant, you don't have to say you're sorry,
G                   D/F#           E7               Asus4
 If you done it just for the spite, or did ya do it just for the glory?
Bm/G#             A/F#
 Like a stranger you turned your back,
Am7/E                G         F#7
Left your keys and gone to pack.
Bm                           Gm6
Bear in mind who's to blame, and all the shame;
E7                Em7                 Ebmaj7
 She really cared, the time she spared and the home you shared.

Unfaithful servant, I can hear the whistle blowin,
Yes, that train is a-comin' and soon you'll be goin'.
Let us not bow our heads for we won't be complainin';
Life has been good to us all
even when that sky is rainin'.
To take it like a grain of salt
is all I can do. It's no one's fault,
Makes no diff'rence if we fade away.
It's just as it was, it's much to cold for me to stay.

G                    D/F#
 Goodbye to that country home,
A/E                        Am7
 So long to a lady I have known,
G              D/F#
 Farewell to my other side,
E7             A7sus4
 I'd best just take it in stride.
G           D/F#    A/E              Am7
 Unfaithful Servant, you'll learn to find your place;
G             D/F#
 I can see it in your smile,
E7                      A7sus4
 and, yes, I can see it in your face.
Bm/G#         A/F#
 The mem'ries will linger on,
Am7/E                          G       F#7
 But the good old days, they're all gone,
    Bm               Gm6
Oh! Lonesome servant, can't you see,
E7                   Em7            Ebmaj7
 That we're still one and the same, just you and me.
