Subject: Lyr Add: LEAVING NANCY (Eric Bogle)^^
I had this lyrics from DT friend Wolfgang and I've typed it for myself and all the DT's friends
In comes the train and the whole platform shakes
My suitcase is lifted and stowed on the train
But our time has run out and the whistle has blown
Sung by Eric Bogle on 'Bogle live in person' - recorded live in Germany, February 1977, Folkclub Munster - Autogram & Folk Records, Nottuln, Germany - ALLP-211
BACKGROUND. This song was written for my mother after she had come to say goodbye at the Railway Station when I emigrated to Australia. She was only allowed to come to see me off on the condition that no tears were shed. And she was very good, she almost kept her promise, but broke down just as the train was pulling out of the station. Eric Bogle.

Brought this to the top as I thought I remembered seeing it a little while ago.
This is the way I have it from The Fureys

I'm completely gladdened to see the lyrics there in front of me, I'm just about to start the weary task of figuring out the chords, and *zowie* there they are!
