[Intro]
Dm If you're heading down to Camden Town
G Dm Be sure to raise a toast
ATo the patron saint of the waifs and strays
(let A ring out) Dm To Jinny Bingham's ghost [Verse 1]
A DmOnce she was a fresh-faced lass, from Kentish Town she came
A DmHer people, they were pedlars, Jinny Bingham was her name
G DmWith her husband Gypsy George a Camden coach house they did keep
E ATill they hung him by his neck from Tyburn Tree for stealing sheep
A DmIt broke her heart to lose her love when she was just a child
A DmSo a man named Derby took the hand of Jinny meek and mild
G DmHe was a drinker, not a thinker, daily brought his wife to tears
E (riff 1) Until one Camden winter morning, Derby simply disappeared [Chorus]
DmIf you're heading down to Camden Town
G DmBe sure to raise a toast
ATo the patron saint of the waifs and strays
DmTo Jinny Bingham's ghost
[Verse 2]
A DmShe earned her reputation on those bitter Camden streets
A DmIf you'd tarry with the Bingham girl, you'd hold your manhood cheap
G DmBut even so the miser Pitcher was the third man on her lips
E ATill one night they checked her oven, found him burned up to a crisp
A DmThey tried her for his murder, thought they'd finally cooked her goose
A DmBut even when the next man died, Jinny somehow slipped the noose
G DmHe was a fugitive from justice, for love she took him in
E (riff 1) But he beat her once to often and the poison did him in [Chorus]
DmIf you're heading down to Camden Town
G DmBe sure to raise a toast
ATo the patron saint of the waifs and strays
DmTo Jinny Bingham's ghost
[Bridge] (all chords palm muted)
FThe locals didn't like her, false words followed her around
EmThey called her wicked woman, sorceress of some reknown
GThey swore that on the gravestones of her husbands she'd grown rich
E AThe ribald and the righteous, they knew she was a witch
FBut the reason she was hated was a simple one indeed
EmShe had kindness for the careless, she took in those in need
GThe guilty and the gamblers, the harlots and the whores
E AAll knew that Jinny offered sanctuary at her bar
Bb CNo judgement for the judged, and you can never fall too far
[Interlude] (riff 2) [Verse 4]
A DmOn the day she died, they swore they saw the devil by her side
A Dm A mob broke down her door and from her chair her body pried
G DmThe tavern is still standing, it's now called the Underworld
E ( riff 3 ) And it still offers sanctuary for all broken boys and girls [Chorus]
Dm So let's head on down to Camden Town
G DmAnd folks, let's raise a toast
ATo the patron saint of the waifs and strays
DmTo Jinny Bingham's ghost
