Intro: F D C 

C G C
Nancy was a tinker girl, roamed the country roads
F C G
And I will tell you how she came to be a legend in her time

The reason I have come to know, 'cause a tinker told me so
F C
Who's there could better know, the tale of Nancy Miles

Nancy's father Tinker Dan, was a proud but honest man
Em C G
Drove a horse drawn caravan, all through the Emerald Isle

And when Nancy was no more a child, Dan he didn't have to toil
F G C
Men would come from far and wide, to play for Nancy Miles

C
There's pretty girls in magazines, and movie stars
and beauty queens
G
Nancy was the prettiest girl, a man could ever see

The gleam of love was in her eyes, and when she'd look
at you and smile
F G C
'Twould make you feel that you were just the man she longed to see

Before the age of twenty-one, a hundred men had come and gone
G
None of them could win the gleam of love that was in her eyes
C G C
Then sure every man who loved her then, never was the same again

His memory was haunted, with thoughts of Nancy Miles
