The Sound of Music : SO LONG, FAREWELL

My younger daughter was asked to researched on the song from "The Sound of Music".  She has seen the movie.  Thus, she remembered which of the songs she likes best.  Its was the song entitled: SO LONG, FAREWELL.

Here is the lyrics and the chords of the song:

So Long, Farewell
(from the musical "The Sound of Music")

                     G                D                          G                D
    There's a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall,
                   G                 D        G     - D
    and the bells in the steeple, too.
            G             D                   G             D
    And up in the nursery an absurd little bird
         G                     D            G             D    - G         D
    is popping out to say "coocoo", “coocoo”,       coocoo !
            D                                 G                     
    Regretfully they tell us, but firmly they compel us
        Am                - D       G
    to say goodbye       to you.

    So long, farewell, auf wiedersehn, good night,
                                                                   - D - G ~
    I hate to go and leave this pretty sight.
    So long, farewell, auf wiedersehn, adieu,
                                                                   - D - G ~
    adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu.
    So long, farewell, au'voir, auf wiedersehn,
                                                                                - D - G ~
    I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne.
    So long, farewell, auf wiedersehn, goodbye,
                                                                                    D     - G
    I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye, good bye!
    I'm glad to go, I cannot tell a lie.
                                                      - D - G - D
    I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly.

             G           D          G                      D
    The sun has gone to bed and so must I,
         Em            G          Am                        D
    so long, farewell, auf wiedersehn, goodbye.
              Am            D             G
     Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye ! Goodbye.
