LET ME DOWN EASY - Ralph McTell

1.
Oh, how can I say it ?
There's just something I feel
from way down inside
So hard to begin
to try to explain it
but something's gone wrong
you're unable to hide

Chorus :

Oh, let me down easy [ 1. baby / 2. baby , 3. darling]
Be so kind as to let me down slow
Let me down easy [ 1. baby / 2. baby , 3. darling]
It's so hard [ 3. so hard ] to let go

2.
We are not drifting,
not with one of us
still left holding the line
And the wind that has moved you
set your sails lifting
blows cold on the one
who got cut loose behind

....

3.
How can I say it
It's just something I know
from way down inside
No use for you
to try to conceal it
It's enough for me
to know that you tried.

....

Enjoy :o)

Henrik
