Liam Clancy - Streets Of London


CAPO: 2nd Fret


## NOTE: ~ = Walk-Down from C to Am ##



[INTRO:] C  G  Am  Em  F  C  D  G  C  G  Am  Em  F  C  G  C

[VERSE 1:]
                  G              Am          Em      F
Have you seen the old man in the closed-down market
               C              D        G      C
Kicking up the paper with his worn-out shoes
                G            Am                 Em
In his eyes you see no pride, hand held loosely by his side
  F           C             G            C
A yesterday's paper, telling yesterday's news


[VERSE 2:]
                  G            Am                   Em       F
Have you seen the old girl who walks the streets of London
            C             D          G
Dirt in her hair, and her clothes in rags?
C                 G                Am              Em       F
She's no time for talking, she just keeps right on walking
             C       G           C
Carrying her home in two carrier bags


[CHORUS:]
         F           Em              C ~ Am
And then how can you tell me, you're lonely
   D                               G  
Or say that for you, the sun won't shine?
C               G               Am                   Em
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
F               C            G                    C     
I will show you something to make you change your mind


[INTERLUDE:] F  C  G  C


[VERSE 3:]
                 G         Am            Em     F
In the all-night cafe at a quarter past eleven
         C           D            G    C
Same old man sitting there on his own
               G              Am         Em      F
Looking at the world over the rim of his teacup
                  C             G             C
Each tea lasts an hour, then he wanders home alone


[VERSE 4:]
                      G          Am              Em        F
And have you seen the old man outside a seaman's mission?
              C               D               G
His memory is fading like the ribbons that he wears
    C              G              Am           Em 
And in this winter city, the rain cries little pity
        F              C         G                  C
For one more forgotten hero in a world that doesn't care


[CHORUS:]
         F           Em              C ~ Am
And then how can you tell me, you're lonely
   D                               G  
Or say that for you, the sun won't shine?
C               G               Am                   Em
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
F               C            G                    C     
I will show you something to make you change your mind


[CHORUS:]
F           Em              C ~ Am
How can you tell me, you're lonely
   D                               G  
Or say that for you, the sun won't shine?
C               G               Am                   Em
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
F               C            G                    C     
I will show you something to make you change your mind


[OUTRO:] F  C  G  C

Great write up.
I always thought it was "Each tea lasts and hour..." instead of "Each day..."
