          G
I met my love, by the gas works wall
           C                 G
Dreamed a dream, by the old canal

I kissed my girl, by the factory wall
           D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town


            G
Clouds are drifting across the moon
          C                 G
Cats are prowling on their beats

Springs a girl on the streets at night
 D               Em
dirty old town, dirty old town

Interlude: C C C C  F F  C C C C C C  G G  Am

         G
Heard a siren from the dock
      C                      G
saw a train cut the night on fire

smelled the breeze on the smokey wind
           D              Em
dirty old town, dirty old town


             G
I'm going to make me a big sharp ax
         C                    G
Shining steel tempered in the fire

I'll chop you down like an old dead tree
          D               Em
dirty old town, dirty old town


         G
I met my love, by the gas works wall
          C                  G
Dreamed a dream, by the old canal

I kissed my girl, by the factory wall
           D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town
           D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town
