Intro:
Eb Abm

Verse:
Abm
I Am A chimbley 

Eb
A chimbley sweep

Db
No bed to lie

Db                   Abm
No shoes to hold my feet


On the rooftop

Eb
In dead of night

Db
You hear me cry

Pre-Chorus:
                           Abm
I'll shake you from your sleep

F#
Hear me weep

B                     E
Your day will come in peace

Chorus:
Abm        B          E        Db
For I am a poor and a wretched boy

  Abm        Eb    Abm
A chimbley, chimbley sweep



Verse 2:
I am an orphan
An orphan boy
I know no love
I see no mother joy
A dirty doorstep
My cradle lay
My fortune made

Pre-Chorus:
I'll shake you from your sleep
Hear me weep
Your day will come in peace

Chorus:
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
A chimbley, chimbley sweep


Verse 3:
A lonely urchin
The widow cried
I've not been spoiled 
Since the day my husband died
Her cheeks are blushing
Her legs lay bare
And shipwrecked there

Pre-Chorus:
I'll shake you from your sleep
Hear me weep
Your day will come indeed

Chorus 2x:
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
A chimbley, chimbley sweep

Why didn't you just say capo 4 and make it a thousand times simpler?
