The Beatles


BRIDGE : Ahh, look at all the lonely people.

Ahh, look at all the lonely people.



Eleanor Rigby,
picks up the rice in a church where a wedding has been.

Lives in a dream.

Waits at the window,
wearing a face that she keeps in a jar by the door,

Who is it for?



CHORUS : All the lonely people...
Where do they all come from ?

All the lonely people...
Where do they all belong ?



Father MacKenzie,
writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear,

No one comes near.

Look at him working,
darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there.
What does he care ?



CHORUS + BRIDGE


Eleanor Rigby,
died in a church and was buried along with her name,

Nobody came.

Father MacKenzie
wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave,

No one was saved.



CHORUS

CHORDS
