Mike Denver – Paddy chords

Chords
Transpose:
C GFrom his window he watches as people, come and go on their way.
CRushin to catch the train homewards, as he often did in his day.
GHe remembers the dark of the mornings, the days he worked in the rain.
G7the good times the bad times the friends that the knew, he'll never see them
Cagain.
GAt night when the streets are deserted, except for the take away signs
he thinks of the men that he worked with, on the buildings the roads and the
Cmines
Gthe girl that he met in the galtee, he thought he might make her his own.
G7Maybe if there was less drinkin', he wouldn't have wound up alone.

C GHe never explained just what happened, the years seemed to pass like a day,
G7 CWas it the rain or the shovel, took the strength from his limbs away.

G7 CAnd the fields that he worked with his father, he'll never see them again.
