   She's Leaving Home
by John T. Marck



She's Leaving Home

Recorded at Studio Two, Abbey Road, March 17 & 20, 1967.The album version is mixed from take 9.Earlier in the year 1967, Paul came across a newspaper article in the Daily Mail about a seventeen-year-old girl who had been missing for weeks. The article quoted her father saying "I can't imagine why she should run away, she has everything here." Based on this article, Paul wrote She's Leaving Home.

Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins

Silently closing her bedroom door,

Leaving the note that she hoped would say more

She goes downstairs to the kitchen, clutching her handkerchief,

Quietly turning the back door key, stepping outside she is free

She (we gave her most of our lives), is leaving

(sacrificed most of our lives)

Home (we gave her everything money could buy),

She's leaving home after living alone for so many years (bye bye)

Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown

Picks up the letter that's lying there,

Standing alone at the top of the stairs

She breaks down and cries to her husband daddy our baby's gone

Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly,

How could she do this to me?

She (We never thought of ourselves),

Is leaving (never a thought for ourselves),

home (we struggled hard all our lives to get by)

She's leaving home after living alone for so many years (bye, bye)

Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away

Waiting to keep the appointment she made,

Meeting a man from the motor trade

She (what did we do that was wrong),

Is having (we didn't know it was wrong),

fun (fun is the one thing that money can't buy)

Something inside that was always denied for so many years (bye, bye),

She's leaving home (bye ,bye)
