(Shuffle feel, very open and loose)
[G]Met my love, by the gas yard wall
Dreamed a d[C]ream, by the old c[G]anal
Kissed my girl, by the factory wall
Dirty old t[D]own, dirty old t[Em]own
Heard a s[G]iren from the dock
saw a [C]train cut the night on [G]fire
smelled the [G]breeze on the smokey wind
dirty old t[D]own, dirty old [Em]town
I'm going to [G]make a big sharp ax
shining s[C]teel tempered in the fire
I'll cut you [G]down like an old dead tree
dirty old [D]town, dirty old [Em]town
Clouds are d[G]rifting on the street
Cats are p[C]rowling on their beats
Springs a [G]girl on the streets at night
d[D]irty old town, d[Em]irty old town
Met my [G]love, by the gas yard wall
Dreamed a [C]dream, by the old canal
Kissed my [G]girl, by the factory wall
Dirty old t[D]own, dirty old t[Em]own
