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."
