DIRTY OLD TOWN

The Pogues/The Dubliners


         C                            => F => C
I met my love, by the gas works wall
          F     => G            C     => F => C
Dreamed a dream,     by the old canal
                                      => C7
I kissed my girl, by the factory wall
          Dm  => Em            Am     => G
Dirty old town,      dirty old town


Clouds are drifting on the street

Cats are prowling on their beats

Springs a girl on the streets at night

dirty old town, dirty old town


(to imitate the „siren“ I'm playing a Bbm-on-C/-on-F-combination)

          C                      => Bbm => C
I heard a siren from the docks 
      Bbm   => F                  C     => F => C
saw a train      set the night on fire
                                        => C7
I smelled the spring on the smokey wind
          Dm   => Em           Am       => G
dirty old town,      dirty old town


I'm going to make a big sharp axe

shining steel, tempered in the fire

I'll chop you down like an old dead tree

dirty old town, dirty old town


I met my love, by the gas yard wall

I dreamed a dream, by the old canal

I kissed my girl, by the factory wall

Dirty old town, dirty old town
