Factories - Damien Dempsey
Transcribed by Joe Grice

I was extremely surprised to find nobody had transcribed this fantastic song.
I apoligise for any mistakes in the lyrics, I tried my best to decipher them, if you 
any mistakes email me the corrections at bulls_on_parade@hotmail.co.uk

The song is actually played in what i think is drop D, but this is the standard tuning version.

F                         F
Factories, Trains and houses,
                 G
Playground of my youth,
F                      G
The place that left me mute,
       Am            G     F
Till I threw back my shoulders

F                         F
Factories, Trains and houses,
                           G
The place that makes songs strong,
F                G
And hurries you along,
          Am       G    F
Some grow old very quickly

F                              F
No star ever played the Cellar Bar,
                 G
Glass and bottle fights,
F                 G
We saw some crazy nights,
         Am       G      F
But then fight to excite you

F             F
I'm awoken by a,
                   G
Handbraked horn outside,
F               G
I knew lads who died,
           Am        G      F
That sound chills me inside still

F                           Am    G
Old junction could take you away,
F                                  Am   G
In the hayfeilds we'd squander the day,
F                            Am   G
From the corner of Holliwell road

Am             G        F
See the sunset over St. Bernards,
Am             G       F
See the sunset over us all,
Am             G        F
See the sunset over St. Bernards

Some boys want to get me,
Because I hit one back,
I still can hear the crack,
of his head on the concrete

Doing drugs and drinking,
Makes you so depressed,
Then you think you're blessed,
When you're dropping and fumbling

Troubled years and fighting,
makes you sad you know,
and mummy had to go,
sure it's best in the long run

Old junction could take you away,
In the hayfeilds we'd squander the day,
From the corner of Holliwell road,

See the sunset over St. Bernards,
See the sunset over us all,
See the sunset over St. Bernards,
See the sunset over the wall
