Nellie Takes Her Bow

Electric Light Orchestra

 CC+Am
 Who thanked the Lord for the clothes that she wore and mended

 C7FGC
 Nellie with the big old fashioned eyes

 CC+Am
 Who won the heart of a crowd tore apart, took a bow

 C7FGC
 Nellie there's a different world backstage

(Chorus:)
 BbFmaj7
 I see the flood lights burning

 BbFmaj7
 I hear the band play on

 BbAmGmFFC
Now Nel---lie takes her bow


 CC+Am
 She said she really could not stay

 C7FGC
 Nellie she had a brand new play to play

 CC+AmC7
 And so she paints her face and smiles    

 FGC
 And she'll be some one else in a while

(Chorus)

 CC+
 Just another lonely girl who 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

 GC
 It seems as though she doesn't seem to care

 CC+
 Nellie just sent me a line to 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

 GC
 Living some one's life upon the stage

(Chorus)
