VERSE 1

D                      C        D
 Would you join a slow marching band?
         F#m              G
And take pleasure in your leaving
       D     Bm        A         A
as the ferry sails and tears are dried
    G         Em      G
and cows come home at evening.

VERSE 2

D                            C        D
 Could you get behind a slow marching band?
         F#m             G
And join together in the passing
   D      Bm             A     A
of all we shared through yesterdays
   G       Em   G
in sorrows neverlasting.

BRIDGE

G               D
Take a hand and take a bow.
    C                     G       Bm
You played for me; that's all for now,
        Em    G        D
oh, and never mind the words
     G-D  Em       Am      C
just hum along and keep on going.

CHORUS

C    D  Em      ///
Walk on slowly -
      G    C D    D    D-Dsus4-D
don't look behind you.
      C   D   G    Em
Don't say goodbye, love.
  G     C D
I won't remind you.

VERSE 3

D                   C           D
 Dream of me as the nights draw cold
      F#m                  G
still marking time through Winter.
    D        Bm        A           A
You paid the piper and called the tune
        Bm          G     Em    A   A-A
and you marched the band aw  -  ay.

BRIDGE

G               D
Take a hand and take a bow.
    C                     G       Bm
You played for me; that's all for now,
        Em    G        D
oh, and never mind the words
     G-D  Em       Am      C
just hum along and keep on going.

CHORUS

C    D  Em      ///
Walk on slowly -
      G    C D    D    D-Dsus4-D
don't look behind you.
      C   D   G    Em
Don't say goodbye, love.
  G     C D    D
I won't remind you.  

REPEAT CHORUS

C    D  Em      ///
Walk on slowly -
      G    C D    D    D-Dsus4-D
don't look behind you.
      C   D   G    Em
Don't say goodbye, love.
  G     C D    D
I won't remind you. 
C D    D
remind you.
C D    D
remind you....
