5.15 A.M.
(Album: Shangri-La)


capo: 1


D 
5.15 a.m.
Snow laying all around
G 
A collier cycles home
                          D 
From his night shift underground 
A 
Past the silent pub
Primary school, workingmens club 
Em 
On the road from the pithead
               G
The churchyard packed 
            D
With mining dead


D
Then beneath the bridge
He comes to a giant car
G
A shroud of snow upon the roof
               D
A Mark Ten Jaguar
A
He thought the man was fast asleep
Silent, still and deep
Em
Both dead and cold
     G
Shot through
            D
With bullet holes


Gmaj7 
The one armed bandit man
Came north to fill his boots
D 
Came up from cockneyland 
E-type Jags and flashy suits
Gmaj7 
Put your money in
Pull the levers
Watch them spin 
D 
Cash cows in all the pubs                                                 
But he preferred the new nightclubs


A
Nineteen sixty-seven
Bandit men in birdcage heaven 
Bm 
La dolce vita, sixty-nine 
G                             D A
All new to people of the Tyne


D 
Who knows who did what
Somebody made a call 
     G 
They said his hands
Were in the pot 
                        D 
That he'd been skimming hauls 
A 
He picks up the swag
They gaily gave away 
Em 
Drives his giant Jag 
    G              D
Off to his big pay day
 
Gmaj7 
The bandit man
Came north to fill his boots 
D 
Came up from cockneyland
E-type Jags and flashy suits 
Gmaj7 
The bandit man
Came up the great north road 
D 
Up to geordieland
To mine        A
The mother lode 


D
Seams blew up or cracked
Black diamonds came hard won
G
Generations toiled and hacked
                         D
For a pittance and black lung
A
Crushed by tub or stone
Together
And alone
Em
How the young and old
         G        D
Paid the price of coal

A
Eighteen sixty-seven
My angel's gone to heaven
Bm
He'll be happy there
G                            D A
Sunlight and sweet clean air

D
They gather round the glass
Tough hewers and crutters
Bm 
Child trappers and putters 
                 G        A 
The little foals and half-marrows 
Em 
Who pushed 
               A 
And pulled the barrows 
Em 
The hod boys 
        G 
And the rolleywaymen 
D
5.15 a.m.
