Chris De Burgh - Say Goodbye To It All
 
 
CAPO: 5th Fret
 
 
       F        Am F           Am
INTRO: No borderline, no borderline...
Piano - F  Am  F  Am  F  Am  F  Am
        C   Dm  G  C  Dm  G7 C
 
                 F      G
Took a boat over Lake Geneva
Am     Em/G    Dm7       G     F
It was raining all night long
        D/F#         E/Ab   Am  
We were lucky and we saw no enemy
    F         C            F        C
And came from Switzerland, poor refugees
F            C       G
Far from the guns of war
   F        G         C    Dm G7
We said goodbye to it all
 
 
C                       F       G
They brought us in to a nurse's station
Am     Em/G   Dm7      G     F
Half a mile behind the lines
   D/F#         E/Ab      Am      
Oh Lord, how my heart was breaking
   F       C                 F       C
To see the children, and the walking wounded
F            C      G
Hoping for a ticket home
    F       G         C    Dm G7
And say goodbye to it all
 
 
C              F         G
I woke up on a cold blue morning
   Am      Em/G   Dm7              G       F
To see her there, standing right beside me
     D/F#          E/Ab            Am       
Long years since I left her at the borderline
    F       C         F         C
And how she found me, I'd never know
    F          C         G
But we decided there and then
   F       G         C
To say goodbye to it all
G  C  F
To it all
        C   G/C C  F/C  
Say goodbye to  it all
    G   C   G/C C  F/C  G
Say goodbye to  it all
 
 
C                 F            G
Took a train from Paris to the ocean
Am      Em/G    Dm7        G       F
Found a small hotel by the coast
   D/F#                E/Ab       Am      
As we walked along the beaches of Normandy
   F       C        F      C
We came to Juno, Omaha and Gold
    F           C              G
And whispered a prayer for the boys
    F        G         C    Dm G7
Who said goodbye to it all
 
 
C                     F            G
Now we've got our own place by the water
    Am       Em/G       Dm7   G     F
And I have a job in the old hotel
       D/F#            E/Ab         Am      
She is ready and she's hoping for a daughter
     F       C           F        C
Well I don't mind, we've made our choice
      F           C           G
We've got all the time in the world
   F        G         C    
We said goodbye to it all
   F        G         C    
We said goodbye to it all
 
 
     C  G/C  C  F  
 
 
 C  G/C C  F  
'Bye to it all
G       C   G/C C  F
Say goodbye to  it all
G       C   G/C C  F
Say goodbye to  it all
G       C   G/C C  F
Say goodbye to  it all
G       C   G/C C  F
Say goodbye to  it all
 
 
G       C   G/C C  F
Say goodbye
G       C   G/C C  F
Say goodbye...
 
OUTRO:  G  C  G/C  C  Dm/C  G  C
