Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover

	  Em/G            D6               Cm7                B7/9   B7
"The problem is all inside your head," she said to me
Em              D#dim7     Gm9           B
"the answer is easy if you take it logic'lly.
Em          D6                 Cm7             B7/9    
I'm here to help you if you're struggling to be free;
       B7     Em    Am7                Em
there must be fifty ways to leave your lover."
 
Em/G            D6            Cm7         B7/9   B7
She said, "It's really not my habit to intrude;
Em        D#dim7           Gm9           B5+
I hope my meaning won't be lost or misconstrued.
     Em           D6          Cm7           B7/9    
But I'll repeat myself at the risk of being crude;
       B7     Em    Am7                Em
there must be fifty ways to leave your lover."
Em    Am7                Em
fifty ways to leave your lover."
 
                  G
Just slip out the back, Jack.
           Bb6 
Make a new plan, Stan;
                     C7
You don't need to be coy, Roy,
                  G
just get yourself free.    (on repeat:  Just listen to me)
 
 
           G
Hop on the bus, Gus;
                     Bb6 
You don't need to discuss much;
                  C7
Just drop off the key, Lee.
                  G
and get yourself free.
 
REPEAT CHORUS
 
 
Second verse:
 
She said, "It grieves me now to see you in such pain; I
wish there was somethin' I could do to make you smile again."
I said, "I appreciate that, and could you please explain about the
fifty ways?"
 
She said, "Why don't we both just sleep on it tonight;
I'm sure in the morning you'll begin to see the light."
And then she kissed me and I realized she probably was right; there must be
fifty ways to leave your lover,
fifty ways to leave your lover."
 
REPEAT CHORUS twice.
