Leaving Nancy Chords

   
Leaving Nancy - Eric Bogle - normal tuning

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

End: G  C  D  G
