No no no no, I,
Em7                 Em7/A
 Never can say good-bye.

Verse 1:

     Dmaj7
Even though,
The pain and heartache,
         Am7
Seems to follow me,
Wherever I go.
         Dmaj7
Though I try and try,
To hide my feelings,
     Am7
They always seem to show.
         Dmaj7
Then you try to say,
You're leaving me,
      Am7
And I always,
Have to say no...
        Em7
Tell me why,
      Em7/A
Is it so?
That I...

      Dmaj7
Every-time I think,
I've had enough,
        Am7
I start heading,
For the door.
          Dmaj7
There's a very,
Strange vibration,
        Am7
Piercin me,
Right to the core.
        Dmaj7
It says turn around,
You fool,
             Am7
You know you love her,
More and more.
        Em7
Tell me why,
      Em7/A
Is it so?

       Dmaj7
I keep thinkin',
That our problems,
         Am7
Soon are all,
Gonna work out.
                 Dmaj7
But there's that same,
Unhappy feeling and,
             Am7
There's that anguish,
There's that doubt.
         Dmaj7
It's the same old,
Did ya hang up?
         Am7
Can't do with you,
Or without.
        Em7

Is it so?

 Don't wanna let you go!

About the artist behind Never Can Say Goodbye Chords:

The Jackson 5 (also spelled The Jackson Five or The Jackson 5ive, and later known as The Jacksons) was an American popular music quintet (and briefly a sextet and quartet) from Gary, Indiana. The group, fully active from 1966 to 1990, consisted of brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael, who played from a repertoire of R&B, soul, funk, and later disco. Considered "one of the biggest phenomenons in pop music"[1] during the early 1970s, the Jackson 5 are also notable for launching the careers of their lead singers Jermaine and Michael.

Signed to the Motown label from 1968 to 1975, and to Epic/CBS Records (as "The Jacksons") from 1975 until their disbanding in 1990, the Jackson 5 were one of the most popular groups of the era and became the first recording act to have their first four major label singles ("I Want You Back", "ABC", "The Love You Save", and "I'll Be There") reach the top of the American charts. Several future singles, among them "Mama's Pearl", "Never Can Say Goodbye" and "Dancing Machine", were Top 5 pop hits and number-one hits on the R&B singles chart. Most of the early hits were written and produced by a specialized songwriting team known as "The Corporation"; later Jackson 5 hits were crafted chiefly by Hal Davis.

Significantly, they were the first black teen idols to appeal equally to white audiences. Upon their departure from Motown for CBS in 1975, the Jacksons were forced to change their name and replace Jermaine (who remained at Motown) with younger brother Randy. The group took control of their songwriting, production, and image, and their success continued into the 1980s with hits such as "Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)" and "State of Shock", and the highly successful Victory Tour. The Jacksons officially disbanded in 1990, after the commercial underperformance of their 1989 album 2300 Jackson Street, recorded mostly without Michael and Marlon.
