If You Go Away

(Jacques Brel (English translation by Rod McKuen))

  		
Intro: Dm6 E7 Am C Dm Dm6 E7 D6 E7 
  
   Am                                                              
If you go away on this summer day 
          Dm 
Then you might as well take the sun away 
         G7                                                                
All the birds that flew in the summer sky 
             C9        C            C9         C  
When our love was new and our hearts were high 
                  Dm6                     E7                                     
When the day was young and the night was long 
         Am 
And the moon stood still for the nightbird's song 
          Dm7               E7  Dm6    Am                                  
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away 
              Am7                   Am6 
But if you stay, I'll make you a day  
                E7/9-              Am                                       
Like no day has been or will be again  
                     Am7                 Am6    
We'll sail on the sun, we'll ride on the rain 
                   G7                    C                                 
We'll talk to the trees and worship the wind.  
            E7     Am             Bb 
Then if you go, I'll understand,  
                     Dm6      E7         Am                                  
Leave me just enough love to fill up my hand 
                    C          Dm   Dm6             E7  D6  E7 
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away 
       Am                                                         
If you go away, as I know you will 
           Dm                     Dm7+ 
You must tell the world to stop turning til 
      G7                                                       
You return again, if you ever do,  
             C 
For what good is love without loving you 
       Dm6                         E7                              
Can I tell you now, as you turn to go 
               Am 
I'll be dying slow til your next hello 
           Dm7             E7   Dm6    Am                                   
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away 
              Am7                 Am6 
But if you stay, I'll make you a night  
                  E7/9-              Am                                           
Like no night has been, or will be again 
                    Am7                      Am6 
I'll sail on your smile, I'll ride on your touch 
                   G7                 C                            
I'll talk to your eyes that I love so much 
     E7     Am               Bb  
But if you go, no, I won't cry 
           Dm6                   E7         Am                                    
Though the good is gone from the word goodbye 
             C          Dm  Dm6              E7   D6   E7 
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away 
         Am                                                            
If you go away, as I know you must,  
               Dm 
 There'll be nothing left in the world to trust 
              G7                                                            
Just an empty room, full of empty space 
            C 
Like the empty look I see on your face 
        Dm6                               E7                                 
I'd have been your shadow if I thought it might 
      Am 
Have kept me here, by your side 
            C                     Dm        E7/9-                       Am 
If you go away, if you go away      please don't go away
