Eleanor Rigby


F                         Am
Ah, look at all the lonely people.
F                         Am
Ah, look at all the lonely people.

Am
Eleanor Rigby, picks up the rice in the church
                    F                Am
where a weeding has been, lives in a dream.
Am
Waits at the window, wearing the face
                               F               Am
that she keeps in a jar by the door, who is it for?

 
Am          
All the lonely people,
      F              
where do they all come from?
Am          
All the lonely people,
      F            Am
where do they all belong?

One eye is taken for an eye
