Dm A  Dm                      A
To Bombay a travelling circus came 
     E                      A            E              A 
they brought an intelligent elephant and Nellie was her name
Dm  A    Dm                         A 
One dark night she slipped her iron chain 
    E              A                 E          A
and off she ran to Hindustan and was never seen again 
 
Chorus 
   D                                        G                    D
Oh Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and said good-bye to the circus 
G                   D              A     E     A 
Off she went with a trumpety trump trump trump trump 
    D                                        G                    D 
Now Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and trundled back to the jungle 
G                   D              G     A     D 
Off she went with a trumpety trump trump trump trump 
 
Verse 2 
Dm    A  Dm                             A 
Night by night she danced to the circus band 
     E                      A              E                   A
when Nellie was leading the big parade she looked so proud and grand 
Dm A   Dm                       A
No more tricks for Nellie to perform 
     E                 A                  E                 A
they taught her how to take a bow and she took the crowd by storm 
 
Chorus 
   D                                        G                    D
Oh Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and said good-bye to the circus 
G                   D              A     E     A 
Off she went with a trumpety trump trump trump trump 
    D                                        G                    D 
Now Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and trundled back to the jungle 
G                   D              G     A     D 
Off she went with a trumpety trump trump trump trump 
  
Bridge
    G                            D   G    D 
The head of the herd was calling far far away 
     E                    A                   E            A
they met one night in the silver light on the road to Mandalay 
 
Chorus 
   D                                        G                    D
Oh Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and said good-bye to the circus 
G                   D              A     E     A 
Off she went with a trumpety trump trump trump trump 
    D                                        G                    D 
Now Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and trundled back to the jungle 
G                   D              G     A     D 
Off she went with a trumpety trump trump trump trump 
 
Chorus 
   D                                        G                    D
Oh Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and said good-bye to the circus 
G                   D              A     E     A 
Off she went with a trumpety trump trump trump trump 
    D                                        G                    D 
Now Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and trundled back to the jungle 
G                   D              G     A     D 
Off she went with a trumpety trump trump trump trump
