Factories - Damien Dempsey
Transcribed by Joe Grice
I was extremely surprised to find nobody had transcribed this fantastic song.
I apoligise for any mistakes in the lyrics, I tried my best to decipher them, if you
any mistakes email me the corrections at
The song is actually played in what i think is drop D, but this is the standard tuning version.

[G]Factories, Trains and hous[C]es,
Playground of my [D]youth,
[C]The place that left me [D]mute,
Till I [Em]threw back my [D]should[C]ers
[G]Factories, Trains and hous[C]es,
The place that makes songs [D]strong,
[C]And hurries you a[D]long,
Some grow [Em]old very [D]quick[C]ly
[G]No star ever played the Cellar [C]Bar,
Glass and bottle [D]fights,
[C]We saw some crazy [D]nights,
But then [Em]fight to [D]excite [C]you
[G]I'm awoken by [C]a,
Handbraked horn out[D]side,
[C]I knew lads who [D]died,
That sound [Em]chills me [D]inside [C]still
[C]Old junction could take you [Em]away,[D]
[C]In the hayfeilds we'd squander the [Em]day,[D]
[C]From the corner of Holliwell [Em]road[D]
[Em]See the sunset [D]over St. [C]Bernards,
[Em]See the sunset [D]over us [C]all,
[Em]See the sunset [D]over St. [C]Bernards
Some boys want to get me,
Because I hit one back,
I still can hear the crack,
of his head on the concrete
Doing drugs and drinking,
Makes you so depressed,
Then you think you're blessed,
When you're dropping and fumbling
Troubled years and fighting,
makes you sad you know,
and mummy had to go,
sure it's best in the long run
Old junction could take you away,
In the hayfeilds we'd squander the day,
From the corner of Holliwell road,
See the sunset over St. Bernards,
See the sunset over us all,
See the sunset over St. Bernards,
See the sunset over the wall
