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

I kissed my girl, 

by the factory wall. 
          Em
Dirty old town, 
          D
dirty old town. 

          D
I heard a siren, 

from the docks. 
      G
Saw a train, 
                 D
set the night on fire. 

Smelled the spring, 

in that smoky wind. 
          Em
Dirty old town, 
          D
dirty old town. 


             D
I'm going to make, 

me a good sharp axe; 
        G
Shining steel, 
                D
tempered in the fire. 

I'll chop you down, 

like an old dead tree. 
          Em
Dirty old town, 
          
dirty old town. 

         D
I met my love, 

by the gas works wall. 
          G
Dreamed a dream, 
             D
by the old canal. 

I kissed my girl, 

by the factory wall. 
          Em
Dirty old town, 
          D
dirty old town.
