Anyone have the lyrics to Leaving Nancy by Eric Bogle. All I remember is the chorus:

So come a little closer

Put your head upon my shoulder

And let me hold you one more time before the whistle blows.

It's a song worth posting, Steve. I have the lyrics at home. If nobody else posts them, I'll do it tomorrow or the day after.

Leaving Nancy

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

So come a little closer, put your head upon my shoulder
and let me hold you one more time,
before the whistle blows


The suit-case was lifted and stowed on the train
A thousand regrets came up in my mind
We had so little time and now the time´s gone
Good-bye my Nancy, oh

Umm, I heard my Dubliners CD with that song on it lots of time so I thought to have the lyrics in my mind. But now that I posted it I can´t get the tune out of my head and one line comes to my mind which goes "I see the first tears tickle and fall" which obviously does not appear in my posting. In addition I think that song has three verses. So possibly one verse is missing. If so, please pardon me and also my bad memory. Thanks.

Here is another thread, which gives the full lyrics. Maybe it's better to cut this thread off here, and continued any discussion on the other thread????
