Runrig - Ravenscraig       C MacDonald/R MacDonald       https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMBEIoIIQnU


   [Intro]
A     A    A    A


   [Verse 1]
A    E           F#m                                A
Word came like a hammer,Night fell down like a shroud
A              E                  F#m       
It's caught me drinking trying to turn back the clock
D                        A
Through this industrial ghost town
A          E              F#m        A                      D    Bm
I've known graft and I've voted well,Trying to keep the Lowlands red
A                         Bm            D                A
But all I gets control in foreign hands,Other colours instead

   [Chorus]
F#m                  A
All I want is a roof over my head
A               Bm
All I want is a steady job
A                   F#m
All I want to do is say I love you
D                     A
With every penny I've got
F#m                       A
And all I think about are Debbie and Jane
A                      Bm        D
Give them some kind of chance in life
A                                       F#m
But the long road running out the strip mill gate
D          E            A
Has got me walking that line

   [Instrumental]
    A       E        D      D    A       E        D      D

A  E               F#m                                        A
We never stretched our dance hall dreams,We got it just about right
A                          E         F#m                     
There's little escape from a working town and from a working life
D                         A
I placed my future in the palm of your hand
A          E             F#m                                                A    D     Bm    
One autumn Friday at the Church of All Saints,There's no investment here in life or in love
    D         E           A
And now it's getting too late

   [Chorus]
F#m                  A
All I want is a roof over my head
A               Bm
All I want is a steady job
A                   F#m
All I want to do is say I love you
D                     A
With every penny I've got
F#m                       A
And all I think about are Debbie and Jane
A                      Bm        D
Give them some kind of chance in life
A                                       F#m
But the long road running out the strip mill gate
D          E            A
Has got me walking that line

   [Outro]
D          E            A
Has got me walking that line
D          E            A
Has got me walking that line

A   E   D   D         A   E   D   D
