Exchange Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Mike Pennington. This song is basically about adoption, but not from the point of view of the adopted child but from the perspective of the child's natural mother and her thoughts and feelings when the baby was actually taken away from her.  Words and music by Mike Pennington.

[C]Five weeks old that's all I know,

[Dm]Except I'll never see him grow,

[G]Into a toddler, or schoolboy small,

[F]Will he be dark, will he be tall?

 

[C]In my heart and soul it is not goodbye,

[F]Because I'II be with [G]him till the [C]day I die.

 

Because today is the day, he is gone from me,

As an adoption form I did agree,

To never see, or even hear,

From baby again, they made it clear.

 

[C]In my heart and soul it is not goodbye,

[F]Because I'll be with [G]him till the [C]day I die.

 

'You must have a photo,' sister said,

As she swept towards my silent bed.

Then wrenching him from my forlorn arms,

A guardian angel his spirit embalms.

 

[C]In my heart and soul it is not goodbye,

[F]Because I'll be with [G]him till the [C]day I die.

 

I try to utter a last goodbye,

The only sound is a voiceless cry.

Now looking shyly at his little feet,

His new mother, he goes to meet.

 

[C]In my heart and soul it is not goodbye,

[F]Because I'll be with [G]him till the [C]day I die.

[C]In my heart and soul it is not goodbye,

[F]Because I'll be with [G]him till the [C]day I die.
