Eleanor Rigby -   The Beatles 1966

 C                          Em
Ah, look at all the lonely people.
 C                          Em
Ah, look at all the lonely people.

[Verse]
 Em
Eleanor Rigby, picks up the rice in the church
                     C                Em
where a wedding has been, lives in a dream.
 Em
Waits at the window, wearing the face
                               C               Em
that she keeps in a jar by the door, who is it for?

[Bridge]
 Em7           Em6      
All the lonely people,     [this is a walk down  3,2,1 0pen on B while holding Em]
     C/E                Em
where do they all come from?
 Em7           Em6
All the lonely people,
      C/E            Em
where do they all belong?

[Verse]
 Em
Father McKenzie, writing the words
                             C                  Em
to a sermon that no one will hear, no-one comes near.
 Em
Look at him working, darning his socks
                                 C                   Em
in the night when there’s nobody there, what does he care?

[Chorus]
 C                          Em
All the lonely people,...
 C                          Em
Ah, look at all the lonely people....

[Verse]
 Em
Eleanor Rigby died in the church
                              C            Em
and was buried along with her name, nobody came.
 Em
Father McKenzie, wiping the dirt
                                    C                 Em
from his hands as he walks from the grave, no-one was saved.

[Outro]

 Em7           Em6
All the lonely people,
     C/E                Em
where do they all come from?
 Em7           Em6
All the lonely people,
      C/E            Em
where do they all belong?
