50 Ways to Leave Your Lover – Lyrics with Chords

Em/G            D6               CM7                B7-9   B7
"The problem is all inside your head," she said to me

Em              D#dim7     GM9+5         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+5         B+
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.  

           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."
