Life in a Tenement Square


Intro

Am   C   D   G
Am   C   E


Verse 1:

        Am         C         D      G
Well I kissed the day, I was on my way
            Am         C         E
From those cold grey blocks of stone
     Am        C          D            G
For seventeen years of squalor filled tears
   Am           C    G     Am
A time now with innocence lost
        C                           G                 
As the sun split the room with its rays filled with gloom
 Am                     E7
Turnin’ all hope to despair
        Am          C           D             G
And the only thing left was to flee from the nest
          Am        C   G     Am
That was life in a Tenement Square

Interlude:

Am   C   D   G
Am   C   G   Am

Verse 2:
        Am         C         D      G
I remember the song where the rats sang along
            Am         C         E
And danced for their daily bread
     Am                   C            D            G
While the damp washed the walls that were twenty feet tall
   Am           C    G     Am
Not a child in the house was fed
        C                           G                 
On the porter filled face of the men left no trace
Am                     E7
Of the coin they had already spent
        Am          C           D             G
While our mothers asked God what was Hell ever for
          Am        C   G     Am
When you lived in a Tenement Square


Bridge:

             G                        Am
Grab what’s left of the coal from the ole cubbyhole
       G                         Am
These cinders need more to be a fire
            G                          Am
While the ghosts of the soldiers that lived there before us
 C                G             Am
Laugh with their guns by their sides
             C                 G             Am
I hear them laugh, with their guns by their sides







Verse 3:
        Am         C         D      G
Now politicians they dwell in that forgotten Hell
            Am         C         E
Our misery’s been turned into news
     Am               C         D            G
Where the fat of the land now hog, hand in hand
   Am           C    G     Am
A crime now of life was ever true
C                           G                 
As the sun split the room with its rays filled with gloom
Am                     E7
Turnin’ all hope to despair 
        Am          C           D             G
And the only thing left was to flee from the nest
          Am        C   G     Am
That was life in a Tenement Square
