Judy Collins - Hey Nelly Nelly


CAPO: 4th Fret



[Intro]
C  F  C  F

[Verse 1]
C
Hey Nelly, Nelly, come to the window
                  F           G      A
Hey Nelly, Nelly, look to the what I see
     D           Am        D         Am
He's ridin' into town on a sway-back mule
           D          Am         D            Am
He's got a tall black hat and he looks like a fool
   Dm      Em                F       G
He sure is talkin' like he's been to school
         Am       Em    D      Am  D  Am
And it's Eighteen Fifty-Three


[Verse 2]
C
Hey Nelly, Nelly, listen what he's sayin'
                     F         G       A
Hey Nelly, Nelly, he says it's gettin' late
       D         Am          D         Am
And he says them black folks should be free
   D     Am        D               Am
To walk around the same as you and me
     Dm       Em              F            G
He's talkin' about a thing he calls democracy
         Am       Em    D      Am  D  Am
And it's Eighteen Fifty-Eight


[Verse 3]
C
Hey Nelly, Nelly, hear the band a-playing
                  F       G       A
Hey Nelly, Nelly, hand me down my gun
        D       Am               D        Am
For the men are cheerin' and the boys are too
        D           Am       D        Am
They're all puttin' on their coats of blue
  Dm         Em             F       G
I can't sit around here and talk to you
         Am       Em    D    Am  D  Am
And it's Eighteen Sixty-One


[Verse 4]
C
Hey Nelly, Nelly, come to the window
                  F         G     A
Hey Nelly, Nelly, I've come home alive
   D       Am      D            Am
My coat of blue is stained with red
        D          Am         D      Am
And the man in the tall black hat is dead
       Dm         Em              F         G
But we sure will remember all the things he said
   Am       Em    D     Am  D  Am
In Eighteen Sixty-Five



[Verse 5]
C
Hey Nelly, Nelly, come to the window
                  F       G      A
Hey Nelly, Nelly, look at what I see
      D               Am       D               Am
I see white folks and coloured walkin' side by side
        D            Am              D       Am
They're walking in a column that's a century wide
         Dm         Em         F      G
It was a long and a hard and a bloody ride
   Am       Em    D      Am  D  A
In Nineteen Sixty-Three

Thank you so much for posting this great song which is so timely right now. It seems it's still a long and hard and a bloody ride. I'm working on writing an additional verse for 2017.
