Nellie Kane
Written by Tim O'Brien


Chords

Song

1.

As a young man I went riding, out on the western plain,
In the state of North Dakota, I met my Nellie Kane,
I met my Nellie Kane,

She was living in a lonely cabin with a son by another man,
Five years she had waited for him, as long as a woman can,
As long as a woman can.

chorus:

I don't know what changed my mind,
'til then I was the ramblin' kind,
The kind of love I can't explain,
That I have for Nellie Kane.

2.

Well she took me on to work that day, to help her till the land,
In the afternoon we planted seeds, in the evening we held hands,
In the evening we held hands,

Her blue eyes told me everything a man could want to know,
And it was then I realized that I would never go,
I would never go.

chorus:

3.

Now many years have gone by, her son has grown up tall,
I became a father to him and she became my all,
She became my all.

chorus:

coda:

That I have for Nellie Kane.
