X2 with a few differences

1st Verse:
[Key of D]

C          G/B       Am7      G
Someday my baby, when I am a man,
      F            G            C              G
and other's have taught me the best that they can.
C                 G/B      Am          G
They'll sell me a suit and cut off my hair
      F         G               C          G
and send me to work in tall buildings.

and it's goodbye to the sunshine, goodbye, to the dew
Goodbye to the flowers and goodbye to you
I'm off to the subway, I must not be late
I'm going to work in tall buildings

2nd Verse
[Key change - up full step to key of E]

D       A/C#        Bm           A
When I retire and my life is my own,
    G           A              D          A
I made all the payments, it's time to go home.
D                 A/C#       Bm          A
and wonder what happened betwixt and between,
     G          A               D          A
When I went to work in tall buildings.

So it's goodbye to the sunshine, goodbye, to the dew
and goodbye to the flowers and goodbye to you
I'm off to the subway, I mustn't be late
I'm going to work in tall buildings

 D           A/C#         Bm           A/Bm

I'm just going off this video:

There are differences but if you get that down,
it's not far from it.

Find me, add me.
