Why I Had To Go 
Intro/fill (originally on keyboard)
G                    Em
|--------------------|--------------------|
|--------------------|--------------------|
|--7-------7---------|--9-------9---------|
|----9-7-----9-7-----|----9-7-----9-7-----|
|-------10------10---|-------10------10---|
|--------------------|--------------------|x2

Chords are for two measures each. The fill above basically happens every time there’s 
a G-Em progression that isn’t under major vocals.

G  Em x2
D C
G  Em x2

        G                                          Em
It is a narrowing. It is a shrinking and there’s a danger of overthinking
       G                                         Em
It was everybody getting tired of drinking every night
            D                                   C
There was a little left to believe in, which is how I really knew I should be leaving
           
            G              Em
I should be leaving…       now
            G              Em
I should be leaving

               G                                                                   Em
We were clever then. We’d talk forever then, and the night of our invention it would never end
           G                                                           Em
It was a parting, and there was sorrow, it was impossible to picture a tomorrow
          D                                                        C
It was necessity and it was instinct and the pattern underneath it kept repeating
          D                                                        C
kept repeating, kept repeating, which is how I really knew I should be leaving
           
            G              Em
I should be leaving…       now
            G              Em
I should be leaving

 Am                        C                                                G          Em
Oh and it was everything. Oh and it was just a way to keep from waking up alone
                      G             Em
Which is why I had to go
                         D             C
Which is why I should be leaving
                      G            Em        G       Em
Which is why I had to go

     G                                 Em
Am I belaboring? Am I delivering? Am I offering you a blanket, and you’re shivering?
        G                                        Em
Is it a play?      Without the passion? Is it an endless repetition of an action?
             D                                C
If there’s a christening, or a crisis, we can get together then and say how nice it is
      D                                  C
Is it torment? Well it depends, which is how I really knew I should be leaving
           
            G              Em
I should be leaving…       now
            G              Em
I should be leaving

Am                        C                                               G             Em
Oh and it was everything. Oh and it was just a way to keep from waking up alone
                      G             Em
Which is why I had to go
                         G             Em
Which is why I should be leaving
                      G            Em                        G
Which is why I had to go                           which you know
