Melody 1 (3x)
[G]  
Here a [G]tower shinning bright
Once stood [C]gleaming in the [D]night
Where [C]now there's just the [G]rubble
In the [D]hole
Here the [C]paddies and the [G]frogs
Came to [C]gamble on the [D]dogs
Came to [G]gamble on the [C]dogs not long [D]ago
Oh the torn up ticket stubs
>From a hundred thousand mugs
Now washed away with dead dreams in the rain
And the car-parks going up
And they're pulling down the pubs
And its just another bloody rainy day
Melody 1 (3x)
-Verse Chords over Instrumental part-
Oh sweet city of my dreams
Of speed and skill and schemes
Like Atlantis you just disappeared from view
And the hare upon the wire
Has been burnt upon your pyre
Like the black dog that once raced
Out from trap two
Melody 1 (3x)
-Verse Chords over Instrumental part-
Melody 1 (6x)
End song by holding a G
