Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Factories  Damien Dempsey

[G]Factories, Trains and hous[C]es,
Playground of my [D]youth,
[C]The place that left me [D]mute,
Till I [Em]threw back my [D]should[C]ers

[G]Factories, Trains and hous[C]es,
The place that makes some s[D]trong,
[C]And hurries you a[D]long,
Some grow [Em]old very [D]quick [C]there

[G]No star ever played the Cellar [C]Bar,
Glass and bottle [D]fights,
[C]We saw some crazy [D]nights,
But then [Em]fight do [D]excite [C]you
[G]I'm awoken by [C]a....
Handbraked turn out[D]side,
[C]I knew lads who [D]died,
That sound [Em]chills me [D]inside [C]still
[C]Hoath junction could take yo[Em]u away[D],
[C]In the hayfeilds we'd squander the [Em]day, [D]
[C]From the corner of Holywell r[Em]oad  [D]
[Em]See the sunset [D]over St. [C]Donaghs,
[Em]See the sunset [D]over us [C]all,
[Em]See the sunset [D]over St. [C]Donaghs
Some boys want to get me,
Because I hit one back,
I still can hear the crack,
of his head on the concrete

Doin' drugs and drinking,
Makes you so depressed,
Then you think you're blessed,
When you're dropping a tablet

Troubled years and fighting,
Makes you sad you know,
And mammy had to go,
Sure it's best in the long run

Hoath junction could take you away,
In the hayfeilds we'd squander the day,
From the corner of Holywell road,

See the sunset over St. Donaghs,
See the sunset over us all,
See the sunset over St. Donaghs,
See the sunset over the world
