D                      C        D
Would you join a slow marching band?
           F#m             G
And take pleasure in your leaving
        D     Bm        C           A
as the ferry sails and tears are dried
     Bm        Em     G
and cows come home at evening.

D                            C        D
Could you get behind a slow marching band?
          F#m             G
And join together in the passing
   D        Bm      C      A
of all we shared through yesterdays
    Bm      Em   G
in sorrows neverlasting.

G                D
Take a hand and take a bow.
      C                   G       Bm
You played for me; that's all for now,
         Em    G        D
oh, and never mind the words
     G D   Em       Am      C
just hum along and keep on going.
 

CHORUS
 C   D    Em
Walk on slowly -
       G    C D      Dsus4 D
don't look behind you.
       C     D       G    Em
Don't say goodbye, love.
   G     C D
I won't remind you.

 

 

  D                 C           D
Dream of me as the nights draw cold
       F#m                  G
still marking time through Winter.
     D        Bm       C           A
You paid the piper and called the tune
         Bm          G     Em    A,  D D
and you marched the band away.

 G               D
Take a hand and take a bow.

      C                 G  C      Bm
You played for me; that's all for now,
Em             G        D
oh, and never mind the words
     G D   Em       Am      C
just hum along and keep on going.
 

CHORUS
 C   D    Em
Walk on slowly -
       G    C D      Dsus4 D
don't look behind you.
 C     D       G        Em
Don't say goodbye, love.
   G     C D       Dsus4 D
I won't remind you.

 C   D    G      Em
Walk on slowly -
       G    C D      Dsus4 D
don't look behind you.
 G     B7      Em
Don't say goodbye, love.
   G     C A     D   A D
I won't remind you,
   A    D  A  G    D
remind you.
