DADDY'S ALL GONE (James Taylor)
-------------------------------

[D->Am7 means slide from D down to Am7(4), with the speed of a hammer-on]


G - Am7   G/B - C   D - D->Am7(4)       G - Am7   G/B - C   D - D->Am7(4)
[intro]

G         Am7                 D    Am7(4)
   Well I don't have much to say
G              Am7            D    Am7(4)
   Thought I'd call you up anyway
G          Am7                  D     B7            Em    Em(9)
   Just to try and tell you the way that I feel today
      F             C
Oh, I miss you baby

Well, I sure am on the road
I don't need to say much more
I'm just the same old well known stranger that I was before
Seems like yesterday now

G   Am7          D      Am7(4)
   Daddy's all gone
G            Am7      D      Am7(4)
   He's just halfway home
G           Am7               D      B7          Em     Em(9)
   But he's hanging on to the telephone, singing please
      F               C
Don't let the show go on

Am7  G/B  C  D
[instrumental, double time from the other chords]

There's a bus every other hour
Even a midnight train
But that don't leave me the power to see your face again
It's not that simple anymore

See there's a room full of smiling faces
There's a man standing by the door
He says its time we change our places and get down on the floor
I'd like to kill him baby oh oh no now

Daddy's all gone
He's just halfway home
He's hanging on to the microphone, singing please
Don't let the show go on
