This song is in the key of C.
Now won't you listen dearie while I say, How could you tell me that you're goin' away?
Don't say that we must part, Don't break my aching heart;
You know I've loved you truly many years, Loved you night and day;
How can you leave me, can't you see my tears? Listen while I say:
After You've Gone, and left me crying, After You've Gone, There's no denying;
You'll feel blue, You'll feel sad, You'll miss the dearest pal you've ever had.
There'll come a time, Now don't forget it, There'll come a time, when you'll regret it;
Some day when you grow lonely, your heart will break like mine and You'll want me only,
After You've Gone, After You've Gone away.
