D         Am         Em7                 Bm7        E7
Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins 
A7sus4                A     
Silently closing her bedroom door
A7sus4                    A     
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more

         D   Am            Em7                 Bm7         E7
She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching a handkerchief
A7sus4              A 
Quietly turning the backdoor key
A7sus4                  A     
Stepping outside she is free

She - we gave her most of our lives
Is leaving - sacrificed most of our lives
D                  Am
Home - We gave her everything money could buy
Bm7                       E7                  Bm7       E7
She is leaving home after living alone for so many years

D      Am            Em7                Bm7            E7
Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown,
A7sus4                     A     
Picks up the letter that's lying there.
A7sus4                A     
Standing alone at the top of the stairs,
           D        Am           Em7               Bm7        E7
She breaks down and cries to her husband Daddy our baby's gone.
A7sus4                    A
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly?
A7sus4                   A
How could she do this to me?

She - we never thought of ourselves
Is leaving - never a thought for ourselves
D                   Am
Home - we struggled hard all our lives to get by
Bm7                      E7                  Bm7       E7
She's leaving home after living alone for so many years

D      Am         Em7                 Bm7      E7
Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away
A7sus4              A   
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
A7sus4                 A   
Meeting a man from the motor trade

She - what did we do that was wrong? 
Is having - we didn't know it was wrong
D                Am               
Fun - fun is the one thing that money can't buy
Bm7                       E7                   Bm7       E7
Something inside that was always denied for so many years
Bm7           E7        G    D
She's leaving home  bye bye

Good tab but it's in the wrong key....try putting a capo on 2 and it should be just fine
