D D Am Am Em7 Em7 Em7/B Em7/B Bm7 Bm7 E7 E7
Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins
A7sus4 A7sus4 A9 A9
Silently closing her bedroom door
A7sus4 A7sus4 A9 A9
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more
D D Am Am Em7 Em7 Em7/B Em7/B Bm7 Bm7 Em7 Em7
She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching her handkercheif
A7sus4 A7sus4 A9 A9
Quietly turning the back door key
A7sus4 A7sus4 A9 A9
Stepping outside she is free


She ...
We gave her most of our lives
Is leaving ...
Sacrificed most of our lives
Am6 Am6
Home ...
We gave her everything money could
Bm Bm E7 E7 Bm Bm E7 E7
She's leaving home after living alone for so many years
Buy Bye Bye


Bm Bm E7 E7 G G D D
She's leaving home, bye bye

Loved it! Perfect. I had to slow it down a bit because of some of the fingerings, but that's not your fault!

About this song

Paul McCartney: John and I wrote 'She's Leaving Home' together. It was my inspiration. We'd seen a story in the newspaper about a young girl who'd left home and not been found, there were a lot of those at the time, and that was enough to give us a story line. So I started to get the lyrics: she slips out and leaves a note and then the parents wake up ... It was rather poignant. I like it as a song, and when I showed it to John, he added the long sustained notes, and one of the nice things about the structure of the song is that it stays on those chords endlessly.
