INTRO: What’s in parentheses is what’s actually being played, but leaving it out sounds 
too. If it’s too confusing just pretend the parentheses aren’t there.


C (Cmaj7  C  Cmaj7  C) Am (A5  Am  A5  Am)

Verse 1:

C          (Cmaj7  C  Cmaj7 C)  Am
Laid our blessings on the ground

   (A5 Am  A5   Am)  C
The softening of sound

(Cmaj7  C  Cmaj7 C) Am    (A5 Am  A5 Am)
Draws us closed again

C     (Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 C)  Am
Stay, stay and watch the coals

(A5  Am  A5  Am)     C
till they cease to glow

(Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 C) Am   (A5 Am  A5 Am)
like empty promises

CHORUS:

C  G           F                  C   G
Why, Why did you go, why did you go away?
C  G           F                  C   G
Why, Why did you go, why did you go away?
C
Baby?

C Cmaj7 Am A5


VERSE 2: (Remember Verse 1’s parentheses)

C                      Am
There's nothing I can say
               C
Nothing I can do
                    Am
To bring you back again
C                       Am
This of life I know is true
                     C
It's all a falling through
                    Am
and so I reach for you

CHORUS:

C  G           F                  C   G
Why, Why did you go, why did you go away?
C  G           F                  C   G
Why, Why did you go, why did you go away?

BRIDGE:

Am          C
Don't you care
Am                 C
That it may seem unfair?
F                             C     G
You steal things you ought to borrow
Am          C
Don't you find
Am                  C
That it may seem unkind?
F                                C     G
I'd rather breathe than drown in sorrow

FINAL CHORUS:

C  G           F                  C   G
Why, Why did you go, why did you go away?
C  G           F                  C   G
Why, Why did you go, why did you go away?
C
Baby?

C Cmaj7 Am A5 (Finish on C)

Great work! I think the C chord sounds a little more accurate while playing a G on the 6 string though.
