If You Really Love Her, Let Her Go                                               
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh                   

Intro: E - Esus4 - E - Esus4 - E - Esus4 - E
G#m/E            F#m/E      
Please give me one more chance,
G#m/E                    F#m/E
I'm begging you, just one more chance,
             E - Esus4 - E - Esus4
If you'll listen...
G#m/E               F#m/E
This is not some movie romance,
G#m/E           F#m/E
Or everlasting love at a glance,
                 E - Esus4 - E - Esus4
Won't you listen...
B/A          A  
She is a part of me now,
B/A                    A                        G#m7
She's the very heart of me now, so...
         F#m7             B11          E - Esus4 - E - Esus4 - E
If you really love her, let her go.

She's your daughter and I know that you care,
But like a lost bird in the cold night air,
She is lonely...
Thinking back to the days you were young,
When the pain of loving was so very strong,
Weren't you lonely?
She is no longer a child,
She's a woman with love in her eyes, so...
If you really love her, let her go.

Oh she is like a bird,
Yearning for the winter wind,
If you let her go,
She'll come again in springtime,
But if you make her stay,
And hold her freedom in your hand,
In the morning you will wake,
And she'll be gone away...

She is no longer a child,
She's a woman with my love in her eyes, so...
          F#m7           B11           E - Esus4 - E - Esus4 - E
If you really love her, let her go,
          F#m7           B11           E - Esus4 - E - Esus4 - E
If you really love her, let her go,
          F#m7           B11           E - F#m7 - G#m - Aadd9 - E
If you really love her, let her go...
