Streets Of London

Ralph McTell

 CFEmCAm
     So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
 D7D7GG7
   and say for you that the sun don't shine?  
 CGAmEm
 Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
 FCG7CC
   I'll show you something, to make you change your mind    

 CGAmEm
 Have you seen the old gal, who walks the streets of London
 FCD7G7
 dirt in her hair, and her clothes in rags?
 CGAmEm
 She's no time for talking, she just keeps right on walking
 FCG7C
 Carrying her home, in two carrier bags

CHORUS:

 CFEmCAm
     So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
 D7D7GG7
   and say for you that the sun don't shine?  
 CGAmEm
 Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
 FCG7CC
   I'll show you something, to make you change your mind    

 CGAmEm
 And in the all-night cafe, at a quarter past eleven
 FCD7G7
 some old man sitting there, all on his own
 CGAmEm
 Looking at the world, over the rim of his tea-cup
 FCG7C
 Each day lasts an hour, then he wanders home alone

CHORUS:

 CFEmCAm
     So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
 D7D7GG7
   and say for you that the sun don't shine?  
 CGAmEm
 Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
 FCG7CC
   I'll show you something, to make you change your mind    

 CGAmEm
 And have you seen the old man, outside the seaman's mission?
 FCD7G7
 His memory's fading, with those medal ribbons that he wears
 CGAmEm
 And in our winter city, the rain cries little pity
 FCG7C
 For one more forgotten hero, and a world that doesn't care

 CFEmCAm
     So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
 D7D7GG7
   and say for you that the sun don't shine?  
 CGAmEm
 Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
 FCG7CC
   I'll show you something, to make you change your mind

first line of the chorus should be C - F - Em - G - G7 -Am... The next should be Dm, then D7.
