eric bogle leaving nancy lyrics

In comes the train, and the whole platform shakes, it stops with a shudder, and a screaming of brakes, my leaving has come and my weary soul aches, i'm leaving my nancy o. You stand there beside me determinedly gay, we talk of the weather and events of the day, but your eyes tell me all that your lips would'nt say, goodbye my nancy o. cho. So come a little closer, put your head upon my shoulder, and let me hold you one more time, goodbye my nancy o. My suitcase is lifted and stoad on the train, a thousand regrets whirl around in my brain, the ache in my heart is a black sea of pain, i'm leaving my nancy o. You stand there before me so lovely to see, the grip of your hand is an unspoken plea, you're not fooling yourself, and your're not fooling me, goodbye my nancy o. cho. Our time has run out and the whistle has blown, and here i must leave you standing alone, we had so little time and now the times gone, i'm leaving my nancy o. And as the train starts gently to roll, and as i lean out for to wave and to call, i see the first tears trickling forth, goodbye my nancy o. cho.

Leaving Nancy lyrics

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

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

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

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

And you stand there so calmly so lovely to see  But the grip of your hand it's an unspoken plea  You're not fooling yourself and you're not fooling me  Goodbye my Nancy, oh 

And come a little closer  Lay your head upon my shoulder  And let me hold you one more time  Before the whistle blows 

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

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

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

And let me hold you one more time  Before the whistle blows
