Leaving Nancy  Eric Bogle



[G]In comes the train and t[C]he whole platform shakes
[D]It stops with a shudder and a [G]screaming of brakes
[G]The parting has come and my wear[C]y soul aches
[D]I'm leaving my Nancy, oh           [G]
[G]But you stand there so calmly d[C]eterminedly gay
[D]You talk of the weather and[C] events of the day
[G]And your eyes tell me all t[C]hat your tongue doesn't say
[G]Goodbye my Nancy[D], oh
[G]And come a little [C]closer
[D]Put your head upon my[G] shoulder
[G]And let me hold you [C]one last time
[D]Before the whistle [G]blows
[G]My suitcase is lifted and [C]stowed on the train
[D]And a thousand regrets whirl [G]around in my brain
[G]The ache in my heart is [C]a black sea of pain
[D]I'm leaving my Nancy, [G]oh
[G]But you stand there beside me so [C]lovely to see
[D]The grip of your hand is an [G]unspoken plea
[G]You're not fooling yourself and [C]you're not fooling me
[D]Goodbye my Nancy, [G]oh
[G]And come a little clo[C]ser
[D]Put your head upon[G] my shoulder
[G]And let me hold you one last time [C]
[D]Before the whistle blows     [G]
[G]But our time has run out[C] and the whistle has blown
[D]Here I must leave you [G]standing alone
[G]We had so little time and [C]now the time's gone
[D]Goodbye my Nancy, [G]oh
[G]And as the train st[C]arts gently to roll
[D]And as I lean out to wave [G]and to call
[G]I see the first tears trickle [C]and fall
[D]Goodbye my Nancy, [G]oh
[G]And come a little [C]closer
[D]Put your head upon my [G]shoulder
[G]And let me hold you o[C]ne last time
[D]Before the whistle [G]blows
[G]And let me hold you o[C]ne last time
[D]Before the whistle [G]blows
End: G C D G
