**********************************************************
*These are the chords for my previously tabbed vocal part*
**********************************************************

VERSE 1:
          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


VERSE 2:
             G
Clouds are drifting across the moon
            C               G
Cats are prowling on their beat

Spring's a girl from the streets at night
           D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town

INSTRUMENTAL: (Key change)

C, F, C, G, Am


VERSE 3:
           G
I Heard a siren from the docks
        C                     G
Saw a train set the night on fire

I Smelled the spring on the smoky wind
           D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town


VERSE 4:
           G                      
I'm gonna make me a big sharp axe
          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

VERSE 5:
          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

It also works well to end with a G.

to match my voice, I use a capo on the 3rd fret and play the 'instrumental' chords on the verses. Sounds pitch perfect
