I couldn't find this anywhere, so i just figured it out myself, everything 
seems exactly right. 



INTRO/MAIN RIFF (Repeat through the entire song)


   G                                                C                G

    I  met my love by  the gas works wall, Dreamed a dream by the old canal

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


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


         G        
I'm going to make me a big sharp axe
         C
shining steel tempered in the fire
             
I'll cut you down like an old dead tree
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
          
Kissed my girl, by the factory wall
D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town


that's all!
