Greg Russell And Ciaran Algar - The Workhouse



[INTRO:] Am  G  Am  G  Am  G  Am  D

[VERSE 1:]
N.C.       Am             G
There is a town in middle England
           Am                G
There is a town deep in this land
            Am             G
Beyond that town in middle England
           Am                   D
Beyond the streets there grimly stands
         Em          D
A silent house of isolation
              C                 D
Red brick and slate, it stands apart
              Em               D
The workhouse stands, it's desolation
             C                 D
And like its memories, won't depart


[CHORUS:]
N.C.             Am                     G
Step through the door, walk through the hall
              Am                   G
You'll feel a voice speak from the wall
              Am               G
You'll feel a voice you cannot hear
        Am           D
So far away, so very near
        Em    Am  D
So very near


[VERSE 2:]
N.C.       Am             G
There is a path up to the workhouse
             Am                 G
The pauper's path, the pauper's pain
             Am             G
Walk on that path up to the workhouse
              Am              D
Then feel the poor that walk again
                Em              D
You'll feel the shame and desperation
                C              D
You'll feel the hunger and the fear
                Em                D
You'll feel the blame and recrimination
                C                D
You'll feel the tread you cannot hear


[CHORUS:]
                 Am                     G
Step through the door, walk through the hall
              Am                   G
You'll feel a voice speak from the wall
              Am               G
You'll feel a voice you cannot hear
        Am           D
So far away, so very near
        Em    Am  D    Em  Am  D
So very near


[VERSE 3:]
N.C.       Am            G
From every window in the workhouse
               Am               G
You'll see the view the paupers had
           Am            G
From every window in the workhouse
                Am                    D
You'll feel the pain, you'll feel the sadness
                Em             D
You'll feel the aching wish to be with
              C                  D
The ones from whom they're torn apart
                Em                 D
You'll feel the waking ways to see them
                C                  D
Though what you see may break your heart


[CHORUS:]
                 Am                     G
Step through the door, walk through the hall
              Am                   G
You'll feel a voice speak from the wall
              Am               G
You'll feel a voice you cannot hear
        Am           D
So far away, so very near
        Em    Am  D    Em  Am  D     Em
So very near
