Chimbley Sweep  Decemberists

[Eb]   [Abm]                                  
Verse:
[Abm]I am a chimbley

[Eb]A chimbley sweep

[Db]No bed to lie
[Db]No shoes to hold my f[Abm]eet
On the rooftop

[Eb]In dead of night

[Db]You hear me cry
Pre-Chorus:
I'll shake you from your sl[Abm]eep

[F#]Hear me weep

[B]Your day will come in [E]peace
Chorus:
[Abm]For I am a [B]poor and a [E]wretched [Db]boy

A [Abm]chimbley, c[Eb]himble[Abm]y sweep

Verse 2:
I am an orphan
An orphan boy
I know no love
I see no mother joy
A dirty doorstep
My cradle lay
My fortune made

Pre-Chorus:
I'll shake you from your sleep
Hear me weep
Your day will come in peace

Chorus:
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
A chimbley, chimbley sweep


Verse 3:
A lonely urchin
The widow cried
I've not been spoiled
Since the day my husband died
Her cheeks are blushing
Her legs lay bare
And shipwrecked there

Pre-Chorus:
I'll shake you from your sleep
Hear me weep
Your day will come indeed

Chorus 2x:
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
A chimbley, chimbley sweep
