INTRO: C G C G C G D7 G

      G 
Every Sunday we go walking to the high part of the town,
     D		                       C	       G
Ever since me father went up there and he found half a crown.
G	
He said 'this is easy money, the conditions can't be beat!'
      D	                               C	        G
We've never found a penny more, but it keeps us off the street.


CHORUS:
	  C	             G
Keep your hands down in your pockets,
	 C	          G
And your eyes down on the ground,
        C	               G
For the streets are lined with silver,
       D7	        G
In the high part of the town.

    G
Our house is not so crowded since me mum, she ran away,
      D	                                  C	           G
She'd rather live from hand to mouth than live from day to day.
G
Well me father's often lonely, but it's a blessing in disguise;
     D	                                 C	              G
It's cured me mother's headaches and its cured me dad's black eyes.

CHORUS

       G
Well a man came from the council for to make me go to school.
   D	                              C	              G
He asked me lots of questions then he told me lots of rules.
G
Then they tried to teach geography, but I found it much too hard;
          D	                                C	              G
When they asked me where does coal come from, I answered 'next door's yard!'

CHORUS

     G
Last Sunday night me father had a bit too much to sup,
       D	                            C	           G
And he swapped his brand new overcoat for a seven-week-old pup.
G
They said it is was a bull dog, he believed them I suppose.
   D	                        C	     G
We found it was a poodle with a badly broken nose!

CHORUS

           G
Well, they sent me home from school last week, 'cause they said that I had nits,
   D                                C                 G
Me mother said she was ashamed, but I was thrilled to bits.
G
The other kids were green with envy, so I knew just what to do;
  D                                          C                 G
I sold them nits at ten pence each, and they all got sent home too!

CHORUS

       G
Now me father said someday we'll live in the high part of the town,
    D	                          C	             G
But every time he gets a job they close the colliery down.
G
It's not when the pits are closing when me father's troubles start;
     D	                                  C                 G
It's when they close the pubs as well, it nearly breaks his heart!

CHORUS
