...ITINERANT CHILD... by Ian Dury & The Blockheads
---------------------.............................

*from 'Mr. Love Pants' (1997)*


Intro:

C7

Verse 1:

  C7
I took out all the seats and away I went,
      F7                       C7
Its a right old banger and the chassis bent.
It's got a great big peace sign across the back,
    F7                            C7
And most of the windows have been painted black. (Painted black).

Verse 2:

    C7
The wind shield's cracked, its a bugger to drive,
   F7                       C7
It starts making smoke over forty-five.
       C7
It's a psychedelic nightmare with a million leaks,
     F7                      C7
It's home-sweet-home to some sweet arse freaks.

Chorus 1:

C7            F7                  Bb7             C7
 Slow down, I-tinerant child; the road is full of danger.
C7            F7                      Bb7              C7
 Slow down, I-tinerant child; there's no more welcome, stranger.

Verse 3:

C7
 Soon I was rumbling through the morning fog,
        F7                          C7
With my long haired children and my one eyed dog.
         C7
With the trucks and the buses and the trailer-vans,
   F7                       C7
My long throw horns playing Steely Dan. (Steely Dan).

Verse 4:

   C7
We straggled out for miles along the Beggars Hill,
         F7                       C7
When the word came down that we'd lost Old Bill.
        C7
You can bet your boots I'm coming when the times are hard,
       F7                          C7
That's why they keep my dossier at Scotland Yard.

Chorus 2:

C7            F7                     Bb7          C7
 Slow down, I-tinerant child; you're still accele-rating.
C7            F7                  Bb7              C7
 Slow down, I-tinerant child; the boys in blue are waiting.

Break:

Gm         F                           C7    Gm
 Itinerant child, don't do what you're doing.
          F
Itinerant child, you'd better slow down.

Solo:

C7

Verse 5:

         C7
We drove into Happy Valley, seeking peace and love,
       F7                      C7
With a lone helicopter hanging up above.
   C7
We didn't realise until we hit the field,
           F7                            C7
There were four hundred cozzers, holding riot shields.

Verse 6:

     C7
They terrorized our babies and they broke our heads,
       F7                            C7
It's a stone fucking miracle there's no-one dead.
C7
 They turned my ramshackle home into a burning wreck,
   F7                 C7
My one-eyed dog got a broken neck.

Chorus 3:

C7            F7                  Bb7             C7
 Slow down, I-tinerant child; the road is full of danger.
C7            F7                      Bb7              C7
 Slow down, I-tinerant child; there's no more welcome, stranger.

C7            F7                     Bb7          C7
 Slow down, I-tinerant child; you're still accele-rating.
C7            F7                  Bb7              C7
 Slow down, I-tinerant child; the boys in blue are waiting.

Solo:

C7
