On Silvertown way the cranes stand high Quiet and gray against the still of the sky They won't quit and lay down though the action has died They watch the new game in town on the Blackwall side From the poisonous drains a vision appears A new circle of cranes, a new reason to be here A big silver dome rising up into the dawn Above the church and the homes where all the silver is gone Gm Dm C If I'd a bucket of gold, what would I do Am Bb Dm I'd leave the story untold Silvertown blues F Bb Going down in Silvertown Gm F Down in Silvertown Bb C Going down in Silvertown Gm F Down in Silvertown

A silver dawn steals over the docks A truck with no wheels up on the cinderblocks Men with no dreams around a fire in a drum Scrap metal schemes rusted over and done If I'd a bucket of gold, silver would do I'd leave the story untold Silvertown blues And I'm going down in Silvertown Down in Silvertown Going down in Silvertown Down in Silvertown Dm Bb Dm C Bb When you're standing on thin and dangerous ice Dm Bb Dm C Bb You can knock and walk in for citizens' advice Dm Bb Dm C Bb They'll tell you where you can turn, where you can go Dm Bb Dm C Bb There's nothing they can tell me I don't already know If I'd a bucket of gold, silver would do I'd leave the story untold Silvertown blues And I'm going down in Silvertown Down in Silvertown Going down in Silvertown Down in Silvertown From the Canning Town train I see a billboard high There's a big silver plane rising up into the sky And I can make out the words 'seven flights every day' Says six of those birds are bound for JFK If I'd a bucket of gold, silver would do I'd leave the story untold Silvertown blues And I'm going down in Silvertown Down in Silvertown Going down in Silvertown Down in Silvertown that's about it,sorry about the solo,my electric is broken, I'll try to post it later on. any requests : metia_kickass@hotmail.com
