Streets of London  Ralph McTell

Hey Guys!!
This is my vesion of Streets Of London by Ralph McTell.
It is actually played with finger-picking
In my view it's verry easy
Verse 1
Ha[C]ve you seen the o[G]ld man in the c[Am]losed down m[E]ar[E7]ket
Ki[F]cking up the p[C]apers with his w[F]orn out s[G]ho[G7]es?
I[C]n his eyes you se[G]e no pride h[Am]and held loosely [E]by his s[E7]ide
[F]Yesterday's p[C]aper telling y[G7]esterday's n[C]ews
So h[F]ow can you t[E]ell [E7]me you're lon[C]ely[Am]
[D]And say for you that the sun don't s[G]hi[G7]ne
[C]Let me take you b[G]y the hand and l[Am]ead you through the
St[E]reets of Lo[E7]ndon
[F]I'll show you s[C]omething to m[G7]ake you change your [C]mind.
Verse 2 (Same chords following)
Have you seen the old girl who walks the streets of London
Dirt in her hair and her clothes in rags?
She's no time for talkin' she just keeps right on walkin'
Carrying her home in two carrier bags.
Verse 3
In the all night cafe at a quarter past eleven
Same old man sitting there on his own
Looking at the world over the rim of his tea cup
And each tea last an hour and he wanders home along
Verse 4
Have you seen the old man outside the seman's mission
Memory fading with the medal ribbons that he wears?
And in our winter city the rain cries a little pity
For one more forgotten hero and a world that doesn't care.
