[Intro]
| E | % | % | % |


[Verse]
E         Bm         F#m                 C#m       F#7
Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins 
F#m7/B                  B9
Silently closing her bedroom door
F#m7/B                    B9
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more

         E   Bm            F#m                 C#m          F#7
She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching a handkerchief
F#m7/B              B9
Quietly turning the backdoor key
F#m7/B                  B9
Stepping outside she is free


[Chorus]
E
She (We gave her most of our lives.)
   E
Is leaving  (Sacrificed most of our lives.)
E                  Bm6                   [C#m]
Home  (We gave her everything money could buy.)                   ^ ^ ^ 
C#m                       F#7                 C#m           F#7
She is leaving home after living alone for so many years


[Verse]
E       Bm           F#m                C#m            F#7
Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown,
F#m7/B                     B9
Picks up the letter that's lying there.
F#m7/B                B9
Standing alone at the top of the stairs,

           E        Bm           F#m                C#m           F#7           
She breaks down and cries to her husband "Daddy our baby's gone!"
F#m7/B                    B9
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly?
F#m7/B                   B9
How could she do this to me?


[Chorus]
E
She (We never thought of ourselves.)
   E
Is leaving  (Never a thought for ourselves.)
E                    Bm6                     [C#m]
Home  (We struggled hard all our lives to get by.)                ^ ^ ^ 
C#m                       F#7                 C#m           F#7
She is leaving home after living alone for so many years


[Verse]
E      Bm         F#m                 C#m       F#7
Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away
F#m7/B                 B9   
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
F#m7/B                 B9
Meeting a man from the motor trade


[Chorus]
E
She  (What did we do that was wrong?)
   E
Is having  (We didn't know it was wrong.)
E                Bm6                       [C#m]
Fun  (Fun is the one thing that money can't buy.)
C#m                       F#7                  C#m         F#7
Something inside that was always denied for so many years


CODA
C#m7          F#        A     E
She's leaving home (bye bye)

Second line of the verses sound awful, particularly the B9. Try B7 instead. I like the Bm6 in chorus though - that may well be right.

The B9 is being played. It doesn't sound all that much different than a 7th, so I can't see how it could sound 'awful' here at all. It's just that the 9th note ( C# ) is played along with a 7th chord and is played by one of the string instruments
