Van Morrison – Cleaning Windows chords

Cappo on Third Fret

Lead in:  G with occasional index finger hammerons 

C (add pinky on third fret of high E string)
Oh, the smell of the bakery from across the street
GGot in my nose
CAs we carried our ladders down the street
GWith the wrought-iron gate rows
CI went home and listened to Jimmie Rodgers
Gin my lunch-break
CBought five Woodbines at the shop on the corner
GAnd went straight back to work.
COh, Sam was up on top
GAnd I was on the bottom with the v
CWe went for lemonade and Paris buns
GAt the shop and broke for tea
CI collected from the lady
GAnd I cleaned the fanlight inside-out
CI was blowing saxophone on the weekend
GIn that down joint.
G D/F# EMWhat's my line?
D CI'm happy cleaning windows
G D/F# EMTake my time
D CI'll see you when my love grows
G D/F# EMBaby don't let it slide
D CI'm a working man in my prime
GCleaning windows (number a hundred and thirty-six)
Second Verse I heard Leadbelly and Blind Lemon On the street where I was born Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee, Muddy Waters singin' I'm A Rolling Stone I went home and read my Christmas Humphreys' book on Zen Curiosity killed the cat Kerouac's Dharma Bums and On The Road Second Chorus What's my line?
