Streets of london

Ralph McTell



 CGAmEm
 Have you seen the old man, in the closed-down market
 FCD7G7
 picking up the papers, with his worn-out shoes?
 CGAmEm
 In his eyes you see no pride, and held loosely by his side
 FCG7C
 yesterday's papers, telling yesterday's news
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 
OTHER VERSES:
Have you seen the old gal, who walks the streets of London
dirt in her hair, and her clothes in rags?
She's no time for talking, she just keeps right on walking
Carrying her home, in two carrier bags
And in the all-night cafe, at a quarter past eleven
some old man sitting there, all on his own
Looking at the world, over the rim of his tea-cup
Each day lasts an hour, then he wanders home alone
And have you seen the old man, outside the seaman's mission?
His memory's fading, with those medal ribbons that he wears
And in our winter city, the rain cries little pity
For one more forgotten hero, and a world that doesn't care
