Cleaning Windows  Van Morrison

Cappo on Third Fret
Lead in: G with occasional index finger hammerons
C (add pinky on third fret of high E string)
Oh, the smell of the bakery from across the street
Got in my [G]nose
[C]As we carried our ladders down the street
With the wrought-iron gate r[G]ows
[C]I went home and listened to Jimmie Rodgers
in my lunch-b[G]reak
[C]Bought five Woodbines at the shop on the corner
And went straight back to wo[G]rk.
Oh, S[C]am was up on top
And I was on the bottom with the [G]v
[C]We went for lemonade and Paris buns
At the shop and broke for t[G]ea
[C]I collected from the lady
And I cleaned the fanlight insid[G]e-out
[C]I was blowing saxophone on the weekend
In that down jo[G]int.
[G]What's [D/F#]my li[EM]ne?
I'm ha[D]ppy cleaning wi[C]ndows
[G]Take [D/F#] my [EM]time
I'll s[D]ee you when my [C]love grows
[G]Baby don't l[D/F#]et it sli[EM]de
I'm a wo[D]rking man in my pri[C]me
Cleaning wi[G]ndows (number a hundred and thirty-six)
Second Verse
I heard Leadbelly and Blind Lemon
On the street where I was born
Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee,
Muddy Waters singin' I'm A Rolling Stone
I went home and read my Christmas Humphreys' book on Zen
Curiosity killed the cat
Kerouac's Dharma Bums and On The Road
Second Chorus
What's my line?
I'm happy cleaning windows
Take my time
I'll see you when my love grows
Baby don't let it slide
I'm a working man in my prime
Cleaning windows
