Chords in brackets can be played or not, whichever sounds better.

For the choruses, you can hang on an E chord, or try the ones I have written, again, 
whichever sounds better. Also, try swapping the bracketed F#s for C#sus4.

[Verse 1]

E          E7         A    (F#m)         C#m       (F#)
Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins
F#m7                 B7
Silently closing her bedroom door
F#m7                       B7
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more
          E   E7           A       (F#m)           C#m           (F#)
She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching her handkerchief
F#m7                B7            F#m7                            B7
Quietly turning the backdoor key, stepping outside she is free


E                                       E7
She (We gave her most of our lives) Is leaving (Sacraficed most of our lives)
E6                E/B         E7
Home (We gave her everything money could buy)
C#m                      F#                   C#m7      
She's leaving home after living alone for so many years (Bye bye)

[Verse 2]

E      E7             A       (F#m)     C#m                 (F#)
Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown
F#m7                        B7           F#m7                   B7
Picks up the letter that's lying there, standing alone at the top of the stairs
            E        E7           A      (F#m)         C#m               (F#)
She breaks down and cries to her husband "Daddy our baby's gone
F#m7                      B7            F#m7                      B7
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly? How could she do this to me?"


E                                       E7
She (We never thought of ourselves) Is leaving (Never a thought for ourselves)
E6                  E/B          E7
Home (We struggled hard all our lives to get by)
C#m                      F#                  C#m7
She's leaving home after living alone for so many years (Bye bye)

[Verse 3]

E      E7         A     (F#m)        C#m           (F#)
Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away
F#m7                  B7                   F#m7                  B7
Waiting to keep the appointment she made, meeting a man from the motor trade


E                                      E7
She (What did we do that was wrong) Is having (We didn't know it was wrong)
E6              E/B             E7
Fun (Fun is the one thing that money can't buy)
C#m                       F#                    C#m7
Something inside that was always denied, for so many years (Bye bye)


C#m            F#        A          E       
She's leaving home, Bye bye

There are tons of tabs for this song on this site, and it would be nice if at least one of them was correct, rather than a net full of tabs of people playing it how they feel like.

yikes! Just go back to version #1 which now has the chords that are the same as the recording.

You may want to rate the tab now too:
