My House On Charlotte Street Washed Away

Played to the tune of "My Oklahoma home", by Bruce Springsteen.


         D
when my great aunt Jean died
       G                D
it was her house that I eyed
                                  A
moved my stuff in almost straight away
      D
I put down new fancy floors
    G                 D
and painted walls and doors
           A             D
making the place mine to stay.


          G
it washed away
          D
it washed away
                                        A
my house on Charlotte street it washed away
  D
sewage came up the drain
             G            D
'cause there was a bit of rain
                            A            D
and the pump station wasn't turned on anyway


       D
I had lots of dear things there
   G               D
Mr insurance man I swear
                             A
those 16 play-stations are destroyed
         D
and that antique Toby jug
       G                  D
not to mention my cashmere rug
                A              D
and even all my doggies little toys

            G
they washed away
            D
they washed away
                        A
everything that I held dear
    D
the floors have started lifting
      G                D
and I need a brand new kitchen
                                 A              D
and lots of Febreeze to make the bad smell disappear

       D
well I moved to higher ground
          G             D
with what salvage I had found
                               A
just this guitar and my dog poppy
      D
and I wrote down this hear song
            G               D
because the days are awful long
                             A             D
when all your stuff has been washed out to sea

          G
it washed away
          D
it washed away
                           A
because of the bloody water-board
      D
I spend my time driving round
     G            D
sticking to higher ground
                       A              D
I think I saw my house float past Greenore

         D
this has happened thrice before
        G                   D
and I'm sure it will happen more
                                      A
I've photos taken so the damage can be seen
   D
I'm going to sue the board
    G              D
and with my nice reward
                   A           D
I might just buy myself a submarine
