Streets of London  Ralph McTell

I love this song, and I just hate it when the whole song don't have all the chords. Enjoy, my friend!
[C] So [F]how can you [Em]tell me, you're [C]lo - ne - [Am]ly
[D7] and say for [D7]you that the sun don't [G]shine?[G7]
[C]Let me take you [G]by the hand, and [Am]lead you through the [Em]streets of London
[F] I'll show you [C]something, to [G7]make you change your [C]mind[C]
[C]Have you seen the [G]old gal, who w[Am]alks the streets of L[Em]ondon
[F]dirt in her h[C]air, and her clo[D7]thes in r[G7]ags?
[C]She's no time for ta[G]lking, she [Am]just keeps right on w[Em]alking
[F]Carrying her ho[C]me, in t[G7]wo carrier b[C]ags
CHORUS:
[C] So [F]how can you [Em]tell me, you're [C]lo - ne - [Am]ly
[D7] and say for [D7]you that the sun don't [G]shine?[G7]
[C]Let me take you [G]by the hand, and [Am]lead you through the [Em]streets of London
[F] I'll show you [C]something, to [G7]make you change your [C]mind[C]
[C]And in the all-nig[G]ht cafe, [Am]at a quarter past e[Em]leven
[F]some old man si[C]tting there, all [D7]on his ow[G7]n
[C]Looking at the w[G]orld, over the[Am] rim of his tea-c[Em]up
[F]Each day las[C]ts an hour, then[G7] he wanders [C]home alone
CHORUS:
[C] So [F]how can you [Em]tell me, you're [C]lo - ne - [Am]ly
[D7] and say for [D7]you that the sun don't [G]shine?[G7]
[C]Let me take you [G]by the hand, and [Am]lead you through the [Em]streets of London
[F] I'll show you [C]something, to [G7]make you change your [C]mind[C]
[C]And have you seen the ol[G]d man, outs[Am]ide the seaman's mi[Em]ssion?
[F]His memory's fa[C]ding, with those [D7]medal ribbons that [G7]he wears
[C]And in our winter c[G]ity, the rain c[Am]ries little p[Em]ity
[F]For one more for[C]gotten hero, and a w[G7]orld that doesn't [C]care
[C] So [F]how can you [Em]tell me, you're [C]lo - ne - [Am]ly
[D7] and say for [D7]you that the sun don't [G]shine?[G7]
[C]Let me take you [G]by the hand, and [Am]lead you through the [Em]streets of London
[F] I'll show you [C]something, to [G7]make you change your [C]mind[C]

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