DIRTY OLD TOWN

Artist: The Pogues
Transcriber: Joe Leary

(Shuffle feel, very open and loose)

G
Met my love, by the gas yard wall
           C                 G
Dreamed a dream, by the old canal

Kissed my girl, by the factory wall
           D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town


         G
Heard a siren from the dock
      C                      G
saw a train cut the night on fire
            G
smelled the breeze on the smokey wind
           D              Em
dirty old town, dirty old town


             G
I'm going to make a big sharp ax
         C
shining steel tempered in the fire
             G
I'll cut you down like an old dead tree
          D               Em
dirty old town, dirty old town


            G
Clouds are drifting on the street
          C
Cats are prowling on their beats
          G
Springs a girl on the streets at night
 D               Em
dirty old town, dirty old town


       G
Met my love, by the gas yard wall
          C
Dreamed a dream, by the old canal
          G
Kissed my girl, by the factory wall
           D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town

Missed a couple of places where you were supposed to switch over to "G", but only by a little bit. Thanks for posting this!

transpose to c and get a c mouth organ. at "springs a girl" and other such places along the song punch in a quick F. Sounds great and thanks.

@ katmandhu

Why not just use a G mouth organ and leave it the way it is?
