...NEVER CAN SAY GOODBYE... by Jackson 5
---------------------------.............

*from 'Maybe Tomorrow' (1971)*


Intro:

Em7  Em7/A

Bridge 1:

Em7                 Em7/A
 Never can say good-bye, no, no, no, no, I,
Em7                 Em7/A
 Never can say good-bye.

Verse 1:

     Dmaj7                                   Am7/D
Even though the pain and heartache, seems to follow me wherever I go.
         Dmaj7                                 Am7/D
Though I try and try to hide my feelings, they always seem to show.
         Dmaj7                               Am7/D
Then you try to say you're leaving me, and I always have to say no...
        Gmaj7   F#m7 Em7  G/A
Tell me why, is it   so?   That I...

Bridge 2:

Em7                 Em7/A
 Never can say good-bye, no, no, no, no, I,
Em7                 Em7/A
 Never can say good-bye.

Verse 2:

      Dmaj7                                 Am7/D
Every-time I think I've had enough, I start heading for the door.
          Dmaj7                            Am7/D
There's a very strange vibration, piercin' me right to the core.
        Dmaj7                              Am7/D
It says turn around you fool, you know you love her more and more.
        Gmaj7   F#m7 Em7 G/A                  D
Tell me why, is it   so?  Don't wanna let you go!

Chorus 1:

D                     Dm7
 I never can say good-bye girl,
E7 Eb7                D                                    G/A
 I never can say good-bye, no no no, no no no, no no no no no.
D                     Dm7
 I never can say good-bye girl,
E7 Eb7                D                                    G/A
 I never can say good-bye, no no no, no no no, no no no no no.

Bridge 3:

Em7                 Em7/A
 Never can say good-bye, no, no, no, no, I,
Em7                 Em7/A
 Never can say good-bye.

Verse 3:

       Dmaj7                                Am7/D
I keep thinkin' that our problems soon, are all gonna work out.
                 Dmaj7
But there's that same unhappy feeling,
                 Am7/D
And there's that anguish there's that doubt.
         Dmaj7                             Am7/D
It's the same old did ya hang up? Can't do with you, or without.
        Gmaj7   F#m7 Em7 G/A                  D
Tell me why, is it   so?  Don't wanna let you go!

Chorus 2:

D                     Dm7
 I never can say good-bye girl,
E7 Eb7                D                                    G/A
 I never can say good-bye, no no no, no no no, no no no no no.
D                     Dm7
 I never can say good-bye girl,
E7 Eb7                D                                    G/A
 I never can say good-bye, no no no, no no no, no no no no no.

Chorus 3:

D                     Dm7
 I never can say good-bye girl,
E7 Eb7                D                                    G/A
 I never can say good-bye, no no no, no no no, no no no no no.
D                     Dm7
 I never can say good-bye girl,
E7 Eb7                D                                    G/A
 I never can say good-bye, no no no, no no no, no no no no no.

Great tab! I used your chords to build my version with barre chords, just so it's easier for me to sing with, thanks a lot. :D

Actually, the intro starts out with a figure that's based on a D chord, then quickly goes to a G chord, then it goes into the Em7.
