With pen in hand you signed your name
D                     Bm      E7
Today at five I'll be on that train

So alone

If you think we can find the love we once knew

If you think I can't make everything up to you

Then I'll be gone and you'll be on your own

You'll be on your own

Can you take good care of Johnny
D                   Bm           E7
Can you take him to school every-day
        A                G
Can you teach him how to catch a fish
    D              A       E7
And keep all those bullies away

Hear what I say

Can you tell him about the man in the moon
           A        G      D          A        E7
If you can do these things then maybe he won't miss me
Bm             E7
Maybe he won't miss me


[Verse 5]
A                  A7          F#m         A7
And tonight as you lay in that big lonely bed
D                          Bm             E7
And you look at the pillow where I lay my head
     A        G             D        A       E7
And with your heart on fire will you have no desire to kiss me
Bm     E7
And to hold me


[Verse 6]
A          A7         F#m            A7
If you can forget the good times we had
D                                      Bm           E7
If you think that the good times don't outweigh the bad
     A                  F#m            E7
Then sign your name and I'll be on my way
Bm            E7
I'll be on my way
