Eric Bogle – Leaving Nancy chords

Chords:
Transpose:
G CIn comes the train and the whole platform shakes
D GIt stops with a shudder and a screaming of brakes
G CThe parting has come and my weary soul aches
D GI'm leaving my Nancy, oh
G CBut you stand there so calmly determinedly gay
D CYou talk of the weather and events of the day
G CAnd your eyes tell me all that your tongue doesn't say
G DGoodbye my Nancy, oh
G CAnd come a little closer
D GPut your head upon my shoulder
G CAnd let me hold you one last time
D GBefore the whistle blows
G CMy suitcase is lifted and stowed on the train
D GAnd a thousand regrets whirl around in my brain
G CThe ache in my heart is a black sea of pain
D GI'm leaving my Nancy, oh
G CBut you stand there beside me so lovely to see
D GThe grip of your hand is an unspoken plea
G CYou're not fooling yourself and you're not fooling me
D GGoodbye my Nancy, oh
G CAnd come a little closer
D GPut your head upon my shoulder
G CAnd let me hold you one last time
D GBefore the whistle blows
G CBut our time has run out and the whistle has blown
D GHere I must leave you standing alone
G CWe had so little time and now the time's gone
D GGoodbye my Nancy, oh
G CAnd as the train starts gently to roll
D GAnd as I lean out to wave and to call
G CI see the first tears trickle and fall
D GGoodbye my Nancy, oh
G CAnd come a little closer
D GPut your head upon my shoulder
G CAnd let me hold you one last time
D GBefore the whistle blows
G CAnd let me hold you one last time
D GBefore the whistle blows
End: G C D G
