Dirty Old Town

C

I met my love by the gas works wall

C F C

Dreamed a dream by the old canal

And I kissed a girl by the factory wall

C Dm Am

Dirty old town dirty old town

Clouds a drif-ting across the moon

Cats a prow-ling on their beat

Then there spring's a girl in the street at night

Dirty old town dirty old town

I heard a si-ren from the docks

Saw a train set the night on fire

And I smelled the spring in the smokey wind

Dirty old town dirty old town

I'm going to make a good sharp axe

Shining steel tempered in the fire

It will chop you down like an old dead tree

Dirty old town dirty old town
