Capo on 2

C         G          C
C        G      F  
One Goodbye For Everyone
F           G              Am              F
Old pair of shoes the last place they were left
F          G               Am             F
Out by the door where they always were kept
C     G     Am     G
Brown laces

(Chord Pattern Repeated)
We stand in line to hear the news
We've not been together since Christmas last year
Room full of children all sad in the ear
F     G    Am      F     C
Small faces
    F      G  Am F     C  G     C
And church music playing, playing

(Chord Pattern Repeated)

Our parents sleep and sleep
They don't remember the ones they have left
We find the magazines under your bed
Strange pictures
I play out in the street
And trip on the sidewalk all covered in blood
Tears not allowed, and I pick myself up
No stitches
F G   Am F    C G     C
Absentee giving liaison
F    G   Am      F     C G     C    F
Your memory like disease holds on
The fellow has grown out again
F                           C     
And all, all the fields are yellow
    F   G Am  G      C  F     C
You are CD's, car keys, diaries
F  G   Am G    C     F      C
My family kept these secretly
F    G   Am      F     C G     C
Your memory like disease holds on
F G   Am G    C F    Am  G     C  F   Am F        
Absentee giving liaison, liaison, giving liaison
