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
