VERSE 1

      D                             G                D
Well Jimmy played harmonica in the pub where I was born
      D                                   G             A
He played it from the night-time to the peaceful early morn
      G                              D                A
He soothed souls of psychos and the men who had the horn
           D               G           A    D
and they all looked very happy in the morning

VERSE 2

      D                         G                D        
But Jimmy didn't like his place in this world of ours
         D                                            G                 A
Where the elephant man broke strong men's necks when he'd had too many powers
    G                              D              A
So sad to see the grieving of the people he was leaving
        D                  G               A   D
And he took the road for god knows in the morning

CHORUS

     D                  G             D
We walked him to the station in the rain
     D                G              A
We kissed him as we put him on the train
        G           D                  G
And we sang him a song of times long gone
            D                A            D   A
though we knew that we'd be seeing him again
 D
Sad to say I must be on my way
     G               D                  A
so buy me beer and whiskey 'cause I'm going far away
      D
I'd like to think I'll be returning when I can
           G             D             A       D
to the greatest little boozer and to Sally McLennane

VERSE 3

     D                                       G            D
The years passed by the times had changed I grew to be a man
     D                                  G         A
I learned to love the virtues of sweet Sally McLennane
    G                                          D                  A
I took the jeers and drank the beers and I crawled back home at dawn
    D            G             A   D 
And ended up a barman in the morning

VERSE 4

    D                                    G              D
I played the pump and took the hump and watered whiskey down
    D                                 G                 A
I talked of whores and horses to the men who drank the brown
    G                                 D           A
I heard them say that Jimmy's making money far away
       D               G             A    D 
Some people left for heaven without warning

CHORUS

     D                  G             D
We walked him to the station in the rain
     D                G              A
We kissed him as we put him on the train
        G           D                  G
And we sang him a song of times long gone
            D                A            D   A
though we knew that we'd be seeing him again
 D
Sad to say I must be on my way
     G               D                  A
so buy me beer and whiskey 'cause I'm going far away
      D
I'd like to think I'll be returning when I can
           G             D             A       D
to the greatest little boozer and to Sally McLennane

INTRO

VERSE 5

      D                               G                     D
When Jimmy came back home he was surprised that they where gone
    D                                 G                 A
He asked me all the details of the train that they went on
      G                                   D             A
Some people they are scared to croak but Jimmy drank until he choked
     D                 G             A    D 
And took the road for heaven in the morning

CHORUS

     D                  G             D
We walked him to the station in the rain
     D                G              A
We kissed him as we put him on the train
        G           D                  G
And we sang him a song of times long gone
            D                A            D   A
though we knew that we'd be seeing him again
 D
Sad to say I must be on my way
     G               D                  A
so buy me beer and whiskey 'cause I'm going far away
      D
I'd like to think I'll be returning when I can
           G             D             A       D
to the greatest little boozer and to Sally McLennane
