          Db
I met my love, by the gas works wall
           Gb                 Db
Dreamed a dream, by the old canal

I kissed my girl, by the factory wall
           Ab               Bbm
Dirty old town, dirty old town


            Db
Clouds are drifting across the moon
          Gb                 Db
Cats are prowling on their beats

Springs a girl on the streets at night
 Ab               Bbm
dirty old town, dirty old town

Interlude: Gb Gb Gb Gb  B B  Gb Gb Gb Gb Gb Gb  Db Db  Ebm

         Db
Heard a siren from the dock
      Gb                      Db
saw a train cut the night on fire

smelled the breeze on the smokey wind
           Ab              Bbm
dirty old town, dirty old town


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

I'll chop you down like an old dead tree
          Ab               Bbm
dirty old town, dirty old town


         Db
I met my love, by the gas works wall
          Gb                  Db
Dreamed a dream, by the old canal

I kissed my girl, by the factory wall
           Ab               Bbm
Dirty old town, dirty old town
           Ab               Bbm
Dirty old town, dirty old town
