The Band The Unfaithful Servant Lyrics

Last updated:

E7 D/F# G D/F# A/E Am7
Unfaithful Servant, I hear you leavin' soon in the mornin'
G D/F E7 Asus4
What did you do to the lady, that she's gonna have to send you away?
G D/F# A/E Am7
Unfaithful servant, you don't have to say you're sorry,
G D/F# E7 Asus4
If you done it just for the spite, or did ya do it just for the glory?
Bm/G A/F#
Like a stranger you turned your back,
C/G G F#7
Left your keys and gone to pack.
Bm/G A/F#
Bear in mind who's to blame, and all the shame;
E7 Em7 Ebmaj7
She really cared, the time she spared and the home you shared.

Unfaithful servant, I can hear the whistle blowin,
Yes, that train is a-comin' and soon you'll be goin'.
Let us not bow our heads for we won't be complainin';
Life has been good to us all
even when that sky is rainin'.
To take it like a grain of salt
is all I can do. It's no one's fault,
Makes no diff'rence if we fade away.
It's just as it was, it's much to cold for me to stay.

D Bm
Goodbye to that country home,
D A Bm
So long to a lady I have known,
D Bm
Farewell to my other side,
E7 Asus4
I'd best just take it in stride.
G D/F# A/E Am7
Unfaithful Servant, you'll learn to find your place;
G D/F#
I can see it in your smile,
E7 Asus4
and, yes, I can see it in your face.
Bm/G# A/F#
The mem'ries will linger on,
C/G A F#7
But the good old days, they're all gone,
Bm/G# A/F#
Oh! Lonesome servant, can't you see,
E7 Em7 Ebmaj7
That we're still one and the same, just you and me.
