I'm sure all the lyrics and chords are correct, if not apologies, this is my first tab.
The strum pattern is a sort of shuffle but you can be quite free with it. 
Listen to the song to get the best feel.

Enjoy!

Intro: G C G D Em

Verse:

         G
I met my love by the gasworks wall 

          C                G
Dreamed a dream by the old canal

 
I kissed my girl by the factory wall

          D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town



           G
Clouds are drifting across the moon

         C                 G
Cats are prowling on their beat

 
Springs a girl from the streets at night

          D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town



          G
I heard a siren from the docks

      C                      G
Saw a train set the night on fire


I smelled the spring on the smoky wind

          D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town




Bridge: G C G D Em (There is a slight variation on the chords but I'm not sure
                    what it is, any ideas would be appreciated)

 

         G
I'm gonna make me a big sharp axe

        C                     G
Shining steel tempered in the fire


I'll chop you down like an old dead tree

          D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town



(For the final verse just do a single down stroke on each of the chords)
         G
I met my love by the gasworks wall

          C                G
Dreamed a dream by the old canal


I kissed my girl by the factory wall

          D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town



          D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town
