Of [G] all the stars that ever shone,not [C] one does twinkle [G] like your pale blue[D] eyes,
Like [C] golden corn at [D] harvest time your [G] hair,
[G] Sailing in my boat, the wind [C]gently[ G] blows and fills my[D] sail,
Your [C] sweet scented [D] breath is every [G]where.
[G] Daylight peeping through the curtain [C] of the passing [G] night time is your [D] smile,
The [C] sun in the [D] sky is like your [G] laugh,
Come back to me my Nancy,and [C] linger for [G] just a little [D] while,
Since you [C] left these [D] shores I've known no peace or [G] joy.
No [G] matter where I wonder I’m still [C] haunted by your [D]name,
The [C] portrait of your [D] beauty stays the [G] same,
Standing by the ocean wondering [C]where you’ve gone, if [G] you'll return [D] again,
Where [C] is the ring I [D] gave to Nancy [G] Spain.
[G] On a day in spring time when [C] snow starts to [G] melt and streams do [D] flow,
[C] With the [D] birds I'll sing a [G] song,
In a while I'll wander, [C] down by Bluebell [G] grove where wild flowers [D] grow,
And I [C] hope that lovely [D] Nancy will re[G]turn.
