[Verse 1]
C Am C Am CHey Nelly Nelly, come to the window
C Am C Am G AmHey Nelly Nelly, look at what I see
Dm AmHe's riding into town on a sway back mule
Dm AmGot a tall black hat and he looks like a fool
Dm F GHe sure is talkin' like he's been to school,
Am G AmAnd it's 1853
[Verse 2]
C Am C Am CHey Nelly Nelly, listen what he's sayin'
C Am C Am G AmHey Nelly Nelly, he says it's gettin' late
Dm AmSays all them black folks should all be free
Dm AmTo walk around the same as you and me
Dm F GHe's talkin' 'bout a thing he calls democracy,
Am G AmAnd it's 1858
[Verse 3]
C Am C Am CHey Nelly Nelly, hear the band a playing
C Am C Am G AmHey Nelly Nelly, hand me down my gun
Dm AmCause the men are cheerin and the boys are too
Dm AmThey're all puttin' on their coats of blue
Dm F GI can't sit around here and talk to you,
Am G AmCause it's 1861
[Verse 4]
C Am C Am CHey Nelly Nelly, Come to the window
C Am C Am G AmHey Nelly Nelly, I've come back alive
Dm AmMy coat of blue is stained with red
Dm AmAnd the man in the tall black hat is dead
Dm F GWe sure will remember all the things he said,
Am G AmAnd it's 1865
[Verse 5]
C Am C Am CHey Nelly Nelly, come to the window
C Am C Am G AmHey Nelly Nelly, look at what I see
Dm AmI see white folks and coloured walkin' side by side
Dm AmThey're marchin' in a column that's a century wide
Dm F GIt's still a long and a hard and a bloody ride,
Am G AmAnd it's 1963
