Nellie Takes Her Bow  Electric Light Orchestra

[C]Who thanked the Lord for the [C+]clothes that she wore [Am]and mended

[C7]Nellie [F]with the [G]big old fashioned [C]eyes

[C]Who won the heart of a [C+]crowd tore apart, [Am]took a bow

[C7]Nellie [F]there's a [G]different world [C]backstage

[Bb]I see the [Fmaj7]flood lights burning

[Bb]I hear the [Fmaj7]band play on

[Bb]    [Am]      [Gm]    [F]      [F]    [C]                                                        
Now Nel---lie takes her bow

[C]She said she [C+]really could not [Am]stay

[C7]Nellie [F]she had a [G]brand new play to [C]play

[C]And so she [C+]paints her face and [Am]smiles   [C7]

[F]And she'll be [G]some one else in a [C]while


[C]Just another lonely girl who [C+]could not face a broken world

[Am]And so she acts out all her dreams

[C7]and wishes that's how it had been

[F]But when the audience is near

[G]It seems as though she doesn't seem to [C]care

[C]Nellie just sent me a line to [C+]tell me she was doing fine

[Am]She got the lead and on Brodway

[C7]And now they're digging her today

[F]And as she turns the final page

[G]Living some one's life upon the [C]stage
