C The church bell rings an old drunk sings C F C/E G/D A young girl hocks her wedding ring C |F G|C F G|| Down on Rain Street
Down the alley the icewagon flew Picked up a stiff that was turning blue The local kids were sniffin' glue There aint much else for kids to do Down Rain Street
Father McGreer buys an ice cold beer And a short for Father Loyola Father Joe's got the clap again He's drinking Coca-Cola Down on Rain Street

Bless me Father I have sinned I got pissed and I got pinned And God can't help the shape I'm in Down on Rain Street
There's a Tesco on the sacred ground Where I pulled her knickers down While Judas took his measly price And St Anthony gazed in awe at Christ Down on Rain Street

I gave my love a goodnight kiss I tried to take a late night piss But the toilet moved so again I missed Down Rain Street
I sat on the floor and watched TV Thanking Christ for the BBC A stupid fucking place to be Down Rain Street
I took my Eileen by the hand Walk with me was her command I dreamt we were walking on the strand Down Rain Street
That night Rain Street went on for miles That night on Rain Street somebody smiled
