Up The Junction (Squeeze)
-------------------------

Verse 1
-------
E                        A
I never thought it would happen
                          E
With me and the girl from Clapham
                 C#m
Out on the windy common
                   E
That night I ain't forgotten
                        A
Where she dealt out the rations
                   E
With some or other passions
                 C#m
I said you are a lady
                 E
Perhaps she said I may be


Verse 2  
-------
E                    A
We moved into a basement
                    E
With talks of our engagement
                    C#m
We stayed in by the telly
                        E
Although the room was smelly
                      A
We spent our time just kissin'
                       E
The Railway Arms we're missin'
                   C#m
But love had got us hooked up
                             E
And all the time it took up


Verse 3 
-------
E                     A
I got a job with Stanley
                      E
He said I'd come in handy
                       C#m
And he started me on Monday
                   E
So I had a bath on Sunday
                 A
I worked eleven hours
                            E
And bought the girl some flowers
                     C#m
She said she'd seen a doctor
                       E                              
And nothing now could stop her

Bridge
------
C#m                      Abm
I worked all through the winter
                      F#m
The weather brass and bitter
                 Bm
I put away a tenner
                      Dm
Each week to make her better
                      Am
And when the time was ready
                   Gm
We had to sell the telly
                     F
Late evenings by the fire
                 A
And little kicks inside her


Verse 4
-------
D                    G
This morning at four fifty
                  D
I took her rather nifty
               Bm
Down to an incubator
                        D
Where thirty minutes later
                       G
She gave birth to a daughter
                  D
Within a year a walker
                          Bm
She looked just like her mother
                  D              D A E
If there could be another


Verse 5 (chords are the same as verse 1)

-------
E                          A
And now she's two years older
                        E
Her mother's with a soldier
                     C#m
She left me with my drinkin'
                 E
Became a proper stingin'
                      A
The devil came and took me
                        E
From bar to street to bookie
                   C#m
No more nights by the telly
                          E
No more nights nappies smelling


Verse 6 
-------
E                    A
Alone here in the kitchen
                             E
I feel there's somethin' missin'
                    C#m
I beg for some forgiveness
                     E
But beggin's not my business
                       A
And she won't write a letter
                         E
Although I always tell her
                 C#m
And so it's my assumption
                  E
I'm really up the junction
