Elenor Rigby


by The Beatles (Lennon-McCartney)
 I:	Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

C - - - /    / Em - - - /    /  x4  //

Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church
Where a wedding has been - lives in a dream
Waits at the window wearing the face that she keeps
In a jar by the door - who is it for?

Em - - - /    /    / C - - - / - - Em - /  x5  //

 C:	All the lonely people, where do they all come from
All the lonely people, where do they all belong

Em7 - - - / Em6 - - - / C - - - / Em - - - /  x4  //

Father McKenzie writing the words of a sermon
That no one will hear - no one comes near
Look at him working, darning his socks in the night
When there's nobody there - what does he care?

 C:	All the lonely people, where do they all come from
All the lonely people, where do they all belong

 I:	Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried
Along with her name - nobody came
Father McKenzie wiping the dirt from his hands
As he walks from the grave - no one was saved

 C:	All the lonely people, where do they all come from
All the lonely people, where do they all belong
