Leaving the Land
(sung by Mary Black / written by Eric Bogle)
Capo 5  ** Chords are under each line of the song **

Intro ( See tab )

It's time to go Jenny   No need to close the door
A                Asus4      A      AMaj7       D
What if the dust gets in the house   it doesn't matter anymore
A                      Asus4                      A    AMaj7 D
You and the dust have been at war for far too many years
Bm                   E                A       AMaj7 D
Now the war is over                  Jenny dear
Bmin                               E ( as intro )

Lea----------ving the land          Lea-----------ving the land

Leaving all I've ever been and every thing I am
                  E             A    AMaj7   D
Leaving the land
E            A    ( as intro )

Remember when I brought you here   those long bright days ago
For all that time you've been my heart   and this land has been my soul
The long bright days are over now   but still my heart beats on
But Jenny dear             the soul has gone


Lea----------ving the land          Lea-----------ving the land
Leaving all I've ever been and every thing I am
Leaving the land


It's time to go Jenny   Drive quickly down the track
We'll never see what lies ahead   if we keep on looking back
Behind us is just an empty house old memories and ghosts
And our small dreams         gathering dust


Lea----------ving the land          Lea-----------ving the land
Leaving all I've ever been and every thing I am
Leaving the land

Posting chords is easy with the new automatic linebreaks.
  • Just highlight and copy the text with the chords, and paste it into the "reply to thread" box.
  • Be sure to put <pre> before and </pre> after the test.
  • Make sure automatic linebreaks is turned ON (which is the ordinary setting)
  • You may want to use the "preview" box to experiment. In fact, it's probably best to preview every posting with preformat tags.

Would this be it.

LEAVING THE LAND
Songwriter: Eric Bogle

Lyrics:
It's time to go, Jenny
No need to close the door
What if the dust gets in the house
It doesn't matter any more
You and the dust have been at war for far too many years
Now the war is over Jenny dear.

Chorus

Leaving the land
Leaving the land
Leaving all I've ever been and everything I am
Leaving the land.

Remember when I brought you here
Those long bright years ago
For all that time you've been my heart
And this land has been my soul
The long bright days are over now but still the heart beats on
But Jenny dear the soul is gone.

Chorus

I't time to go, Jenny
Drive quickly down the track
We'll never see what lies ahead if we keep on looking back
Behind is just an empty house
Old memories and ghosts
And our small dream gathering dust.

Chorus
