This is written for piano in the key of E major. Guitar players could use
a capo on a high fret and play it in G. This would make the song much easier.
(See bottom.)

Intro: E  A/E  E   A/E 

E          B         A           E
    Lonely sunshine,   days come easy,
F#m  E/G#    A   F#/A#  E/B  G#/C   C#m   A
    Spend my time        alone  at  rest,
E            B    A             E
    And if I were   the last to leave here,
F#m     E/G#        A     C#m   B7
    Now would these roads be     any less?
E            B   A            E
    Oh, were I    the last to leave.
F#m   E/G#          A  F#/A#  E/B  G#/C   C#m   A
    Now would these ribbon        highway roads
E           B     A      E
    Be less wonderful to me?
F#m     E/G#   A    C#m  B      E
    Why must I always     be so slow?

E        B       A          E
    Many friends   come and go,
F#m          E/G#             A       F#/A#  E/B        G#/C   C#m  A
    You know there's a lot of feelings        that I've left behind,
E              B      A        E
    And it's a lonely world, I know,
F#m      E/G# A       C#m  B7
    When your friends are    hard to find.
E                B     A          E
    But take the time,  my memory fails,
F#m     E/G#    A   F#/A#  E/B      G#/C    C#m  A
    And soak my eyes         in the morning rain,
E          B      A             E 
    Like a sailor, sailing over Jordan,
F#m   E/G  A    C#m  B7
    On the road back  home again.
E            B  A             E 
    Oh, were I    the last to leave.
F#m  E/G#       A     F#/A#  E/B G#/C  C#m   A
    Would these ribbon         highway roads
E           B     A      E
    Be less wonderful to me?
F#m E/G#       A  C#m  B      E
    Why must I always   be so slow?


In G:   E     -) G
                B     -) D
                A     -) C
                F#m   -) Am
                E/G#  -) G/B
                F#/A# -) A/C#
                E/B     -) G/D
                G#/C  -) B/D#
                C#m   -) Em

The chords shown for the song under Arlo's tablature section don't quite get me there for the Live In Sydney version. Is Last To Leave, Sidney-style in the key of G? Would someone be so kind as to list the progression?

Thanks,
Brandon
