GUEST,Dave MacKenzie Chords Req: D-Day Dodgers / Lili Marlene (9) RE: Chords Req: D-Day Dodgers / Lili Marlene 02 Sep 09


Here's a better sounding set of chords to the tune.

FANNY BY GASLIGHT

D              F#m              Em               A
Doun in Sauchiehall Street, standin' in a close,
Em            A                       D
Listenin' tae a Yankee talkin' through his nose;
G        A          D              F#m              Em         A         D                  F#m
He says tae me, "I'll see ye hame", "Oh no", says I, "I'll get a bad name",
Em           A        D F#m        Em       A              D
They call me Fanny by gaslight, but Fanny's no ma name.

I took him tae the Palais, I thought he'd like tae dance,
But he turned and said "Now Fanny, let's you an' I romance".
I said tae him "If it's a' the same, I'll sit an' play the waitin' game",
They call me Fanny by gaslight, but Fanny's no ma name.

Me Faither an' me Mither made him welcome as could be;
Me Faither said nae ither boy wis good enough for me;
He said he liked the Yankee's name, but called him "Jimmy" just the same;
They call me Fanny by gaslight, but Fanny's no ma name.

Nine month's come December, I'll remember it wi' pride;
I became a member as a Yankee GI bride;
In the New York night I walk the same, while my husband hides in a nearby lane.
They call me Fanny by gaslight, but Fanny's no ma name.
