The Band - The Unfaithful Servant lyrics

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.
