[Intro]
D D7/C G/B Gm/A#
D D7/C G/B Gm/A#


[Verse 1]
D      D7/C           G/B
Early morning day is dawning
        Gm/A#              D     D7/C G/B Gm/A# D
Cooling towers and factory gates
      D7/C                 G/B
Dirty streets and laughing people
       Gm/A#         D      C Bb G#maj7
Skinny dogs and beer crates


[Chorus]
C   G           D
Hello my old friend
C   G           D   E C#m Cmaj7  
Hello my old friend


[Verse 2]
D      D7/C            G/B
Sad canals green black water
          Gm/A#        D    D7/C G/B Gm/A# D
Somewhere bicycles and beds
        D7/C         G/B
Wet and windy afternoons
            Gm/A#         D      C Bb G#maj7
And pigeons coo in garden sheds


[Chorus]
C   G           D
Hello my old friend
C   G           D   E C#m E C#m Cmaj7  
Hello my old friend


[Verse 3]
D         D7/C              G/B
High-rise tower blocks with panoramic
Gm/A#               D    D7/C G/B Gm/A# D
Views of trains and coal
        D7/C                 G/B
Tiehead railway tracks tread faithfully
    Gm/A#          D      C Bb G#maj7
The gas works to behold


[Chorus]
C   G           D
Hello my old friend
C   G   D   F
Uuh Uuh Uuh


[Bridge]
G               Bm
Just to see the sunset
       Cadd2         Dsus2         G      Bm C D
Pretty rainbows over your majestic towers
G            Bm               Cadd2
To feel your earth beneath my feet
             D                   E     C#m E C#m
Here I could stand for hours and hours


[Instrumental]
Em A Em A7 E A7 E  A Am/C A Am/C


[Verse 4]
D     D7/C                  G/B
Big machines that once were champions
        Gm/A#          D    D7/C G/B Gm/A# D
Turn to dust under the sky
       D7/C             G/B
Broken windows choking chimneys
        Gm/A#               D      C Bb G#maj7
Factory walls for miles and miles


[Chorus]
C  G            D
By bye my old friend
C  G            D     F
By bye my old friend


[Outro]
G               Bm
Just to see the sunset
       Cadd2         Dsus2         G      Bm C D
Pretty rainbows over your majestic towers
G            Bm               Cadd2
To feel your earth beneath my feet
             D                   E     C#m
Here I could stand for hours and hours
