One Less Set of Footsteps

Song Author Jim Croce Lyrics by: Jim Croce Performer: Jim Croce Submitted by: Hjalti_G
W[C]e're been runnin' a[F]way from, [G]    
S[C]omethin' we both k[F]now, [G]    
We've [C]long run [E7]out of [F]things to [C]say,
And I t[F]hink I'd [C]better [Bb]go. [G]    
S[C]o don't be gettin' exc[F]ited, [G]    
When you [C]hear that [Em]slammin' d[Am]oor, [D7]    
'Cause there'll be o[C]ne less set of f[G]ootsteps
On your flo[F]or in the mornin'[C].  

A[C]nd we've been hidin' from s[F]omethin', [G]    
That should have n[C]ever gone this f[F]ar, [G]    
B[C]ut after a[E7]ll it's w[F]hat we've d[C]one,
That m[F]akes us w[C]hat we [Bb]are. [G]    
A[C]nd you've been talkin' in s[F]ilence,[G]    
Well if it's s[C]ilence y[Em]ou ad[Am]ore, [D7]    
Oh, there'll be o[C]ne Less set of f[G]ootsteps
On your flo[F]or in the mornin'[C].  

Well there'll be o[F]ne Less set of footsteps on your f[C]loor,
O[F]ne Less m[Am]an to w[C]alk in,
O[F]ne Less pair of jeans upon your d[G]oor,
O[Am]ne less v[D]oice a-t[G7]alkin'.

B[C]ut tomorrow's a d[F]ream away, [G]    
And tod[C]ay has turned to d[F]ust, [G]    
Y[C]our silver t[E7]ongue has t[F]urned to c[C]lay,
And your g[F]olden r[C]ule to r[Bb]ust. [G]    
I[C]f that's the way that you w[F]ant it, [G]    
Well that's the w[C]ay I w[Em]ant it m[Am]ore, [D7]    
'Cause there'll be o[C]ne less set of f[G]ootsteps
On your flo[F]or in the mor[C]nin'.

Well there'll b[F]e one Less set of footsteps [C]on your floor,
O[F]ne Less m[Am]an to w[C]alk in,
O[F]ne Less pair of jeans upon your d[G]oor,
O[Am]ne less v[D]oice a-t[G7]alkin'.

B[C]ut tomorrow's a d[F]ream away, [G]    
And tod[C]ay has turned to d[F]ust, [G]    
Y[C]our silver t[E7]ongue has t[F]urned to c[C]lay,
And your g[F]olden r[C]ule to r[Bb]ust. [G]    
I[C]f that's the way that you w[F]ant it, [G]    
Well that's the w[C]ay I w[Em]ant it m[Am]ore, [D7]    
'Cause there'll be o[C]ne less set of f[G]ootsteps
On your flo[F]or in the mor[C]nin'.

We're been runnin' away from,
Somethin' we both know,
We've long run out of things to say,
And I think I'd better go.
So don't be gettin' excited,
When you hear that slammin' door,
'Cause there'll be one less set of footsteps
On your floor in the mornin'.

And we've been hidin' from somethin',
That should have never gone this far,
But after all it's what we've done,
That makes us what we are.
And you've been talkin' in silence,
Well if it's silence you adore,
Oh, there'll be one Less set of footsteps
On your floor in the mornin'.

Well there'll be one Less set of footsteps on your floor,
One Less man to walk in,
One Less pair of jeans upon your door,
One less voice a-talkin'.

But tomorrow's a dream away,
And today has turned to dust,
Your silver tongue has turned to clay,
And your golden rule to rust.
If that's the way that you want it,
Well that's the way I want it more,
'Cause there'll be one less set of footsteps
On your floor in the mornin'.

Well there'll be one Less set of footsteps on your floor,
One Less man to walk in,
One Less pair of jeans upon your door,
One less voice a-talkin'.

But tomorrow's a dream away,
And today has turned to dust,
Your silver tongue has turned to clay,
And your golden rule to rust.
If that's the way that you want it,
Well that's the way I want it more,
'Cause there'll be one less set of footsteps
On your floor in the mornin'.
