A          E          B                 Bm7
         Unfaithful Servant, I hear you leavin' soon in the mornin'
 A             E               F#                        B
 What did you do to the lady, that she's gonna have to send you away?
A           E        B              Bm7
 Unfaithful servant, you don't have to say you're sorry,
 A                E                  F#               B
 If you done it just for the spite, or did ya do it just for the glory?
C#m               B           
 Like a stranger you turned your back,
Bm                A         G#
Left your keys and gone to pack.
C#m                           Am
Bear in mind who's to blame, and all the shame;
 F#                F#m7                 F
 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.

 A                   E
 Goodbye to that country home,
 B                       Bm7
 So long to a lady I have known,
 A              E
 Farewell to my other side,
 F#            B
 I'd best just take it in stride.
 A           E        B              Bm7
 Unfaithful Servant, you'll learn to find your place;
 A             E   
 I can see it in your smile,
F#                      B
 and, yes, I can see it in your face.
C#m            B
 The mem'ries will linger on,
 Bm                          A       G#
 But the good old days, they're all gone,
    C#m               Am
Oh! Lonesome servant, can't you see,
F#                    F#m            F
 That we're still one and the same, just you and me.
