[Verse]
   Am                G       C     D         G
The time has come to part my love I must go away
  Am        D      G      C        D            G
I leave you now my darling girl no longer can I stay
  C           D        C        Em       D           C
My heart like yours is breaking together we'll prove strong
    B7           Em            D        C         D         Am
The road I take will show the world the suffering that goes on

[Verse]
   Am                 G        C         D            G
The gentle clasp that holds my hand must loosen and let go
   Am   D       G          C            D                G
Please help me through the door though instinct tells you no
   C       D    C              Em        D        C
Our vow it is eternal and will bring you dreadful pain
    B7                    Em      D        C       D    Am
But if our demands aren't recognised don't call me back again

[Verse]
   Am            G              C        D     G
How their sorrow touched us all in those final days
   Am       D         G       C         D                  G
When it was time she held the door and touched his shallow face
   C         D      C       Em       D        C
The flame he lit by leaving is still burning strong
B7                 Em       D       C         D          Am
By the lights it's plain to see the suffering still goes on

[Outro]
   Am                 G      C    D          G
The time has come to part my love I must go away
   Am       D      G       C       D            G
I leave you now my darling girl no longer can I stay
