Leaving Nancy

Eric Bogle

 GC
 In comes the train and the whole platform shakes
 DG
 It stops with a shudder and a screaming of brakes
 GC
 The parting has come and my weary soul aches
 DG
 I'm leaving my Nancy, oh            

 GC
 But you stand there so calmly determinedly gay
 DC
 You talk of the weather and events of the day
 GC
 And your eyes tell me all that your tongue doesn't say
 GD
 Goodbye my Nancy, oh

 GC
 And come a little closer
 DG
 Put your head upon my shoulder
 GC
 And let me hold you one last time
 DG
 Before the whistle blows

 GC
 My suitcase is lifted and stowed on the train
 DG
 And a thousand regrets whirl around in my brain
 GC
 The ache in my heart is a black sea of pain
 DG
 I'm leaving my Nancy, oh

 GC
 But you stand there beside me so lovely to see
 DG
 The grip of your hand is an unspoken plea
 GC
 You're not fooling yourself and you're not fooling me
 DG
 Goodbye my Nancy, oh

 GC
 And come a little closer
 DG
 Put your head upon my shoulder
 GC
 And let me hold you one last time  
 DG
 Before the whistle blows      

 GC
 But our time has run out and the whistle has blown
 DG
 Here I must leave you standing alone
 GC
 We had so little time and now the time's gone
 DG
 Goodbye my Nancy, oh

 GC
 And as the train starts gently to roll
 DG
 And as I lean out to wave and to call
 GC
 I see the first tears trickle and fall
 DG
 Goodbye my Nancy, oh

 GC
 And come a little closer
 DG
 Put your head upon my shoulder
 GC
 And let me hold you one last time
 DG
 Before the whistle blows
 GC
 And let me hold you one last time
 DG
 Before the whistle blows

End: G C D G
