Note: Both Bm and F#m chords are played with a hammer-on using the index finger --
to the song for timing.

Bm F#m (x2)

Bm           F#m          Bm            F#m
Sitting in a Dixon garden, wishing that you and I weren't parting
         G              A
For the last time, the last time
           Bm                    F#m            Bm                 F#m
And I said, "Why you want to get married anyway?  That man's got a family"
                 G                       A
And then you say, "Couldn't wait on you forever, or could I?"
Bm            F#m
   "Guess not"

Bm F#m

Bm                 F#m                       Bm            F#m
There's an awkward silence for the first time, so many years
Bm                  F#m                        G           A
And as I recall you used to be mine, not some property of his
           Bm         F#m   Bm      F#m
And I sing "Ah la don't go, ah la stay
Bm         F#m  G         Bm     F#m
Ah la don't go, don't go away."

Bm F#m

Bm    F#m                Bm                F#m
Maybe I should apologize, for I treated you so
Bm          F#m                  G             A
And I'm so sorry that I left you here, I just wish I could have known
        Bm              F#m     Bm             F#m
You say, "You never can tell, and it's not your fault
Bm                      F#m                      G                   A
See these things just happen when you're dealing with the hands on a clock of a woman"

Bm F#m (x2)

Bm               F#m          Bm                F#m
"And he treats me fine, and anyways I'm getting older"
           Bm             F#m                G                           A
She said, "Oh but I still miss you sometimes, when the weather's getting colder"
             Bm         F#m   Bm      F#m
And she sang "Ah la don't go, ah la stay
Bm         F#m  G         Bm     F#m
Ah la don't go, don't go away."

Bm F#m

E5^E7 E5 B7 B7 G7     E5 E5^E7 E5 B7 B7
E5^E7 E5 B7 B7   B7 B7^B8    B8 B8\B7    B7 B5^B7      B5 B5^B7     B7 B5^B7

Bm        F#m     Bm               F#m
Do we say goodbye, or just see you later?
           Em           F#m
She said "Don't make me cry,
            G              F#m
'Cause it's enough just to know
             G             F#m
That I won't ever hold you close
            G               F#m
And I won't ever smell your skin,
And I know how I'm supposed to feel,
A                        Bm      F#m      Bm       F#m
Here we go again singing, "Ah la don't go, ah la stay
Bm         F#m  G          Bm     F#m
Ah la don't go, don't go away."
