[Verse – 1]
[G]
She sits alone by a [D]lam-post
[C]Trying to find a thought that’s escaped her [G]mind
[G]She says “Dad’s the one I love [D]the most.”
[C]But Stipe’s not far [G]behind

[G]She never lets me in [D]only tells me where she’s been
[C]when she’s had to much to [G]drink
[G]I say that I don’t care I just [D]run my hands through her dark hair
[C]then I pray to God, “You gotta help me fly [G]away” (and just)

[Chorus]
let her [C]cry if the [G]tears fall down like rain
let her [C]sing If it [Em]eases [G]all her [D]pain
let her [C]go let her [G]walk right out on me
and if the [D]sun comes up tomorrow,
let her [C]be, let her [G]be

This morning I woke up alone [D]found a note standing by the phone
[C]saying “maybe, maybe I’ll be [G]back someday”
[G]I wanted to look for you
you walked [D]in, I didn’t know just what I should do
So, I [C]sat back down, had a beer, and felt [G]sorry for myself

[Chorus]
let her [C]cry if the [G]tears fall down like rain
let her [C]sing If it [Em]eases [G]all her [D]pain

last night I tried to leave
[D]cried so much I could not believe
[C]she was the same girl I fell in love with [G]long ago
[G]she went in the back to get high
[D]I sat down on my couch and cried yelling
[C]“Whoa Lord whoa, please help [G]me. Won’t you hold my hand”

[Chorus]
let her [C]cry if the [G]tears fall down like rain
let her [C]sing If it [Em]eases [G]all her [D]pain
let her [C]go let her [G]walk right out on me
and if the [D]sun comes up tomorrow,
let her [C]be, let her [G]be

let her [C]go let her [G]walk right out on me
and if the [D]sun comes up tomorrow,
let her [C]be, let her [G]be
