C          Am          F          G
Beautiful William one morning in May
      C             Am              F      
in a milk-white convertible drove slowly away

Beautiful William with curling black hair
      C            Am            F            
gold rings on his fingers as he held to the wheel

        Am                   Em
Was he given a package by a man on the train?
             Dm                   Am         G
We found his car by the roadside later that day

C             Am      F         G
Mirrored sunglasses, roses and wine
C            Am                 F           
laid on the empty seat, as he slowly drove by

    C               Am          F                G
He left his lights burning. He left his perfect lawn
     C           Am        F             
His automatic sprinklers about to switch on

Fill 1 x2

        Am                         Em
Did he find a black glove on the cliffs by the bay?
Dm                      F                          
Why would he leave us, why would he leave us this way?

     C                Am           F           G
He drove through the town with a smile on his face
 C         Am             F           
waving to everyone as he went on his way

 C         Am          F               G
Polly from Red River, Rose from Green Falls
       C           Am             F          
they drove to his house and they lay on the lawn

         Am                         Em
Was he stopped in the airport by a man with a cane?
              Dm                  Am         G
We found his car by the roadside later that day

 C                Am                F            G
Rose smashed his windows till the glass was all gone
 C               Am                  F               
Polly broke the back door and she screamed down the hall

     C         Am          F             G
But no answer sounded but wind flying through
       C            Am            F               
as we tore up the green lawn and torched all the rooms

Fill 1 x2

        Am                        Em
Did he find a white glove in the pines by the lake?
Dm                      F                          
Why would he leave us, why would he leave us this way?
