"Dirty Old Town" - as played by The Dubliners


[Verse 1]
       G
Met my love, by the gas works wall
          C                 G
Dreamed a dream, by the old canal

I kissed my girl, by the factory wall
          D               Em     G
Dirty old town, dirty old town


[Verse 2]
           G
Clouds are drifting across the moon
         C                 G
Cats are prowling on their beat
           
Spring’s a girl from the streets at night
          D               Em     G
Dirty old town, dirty old town


[Verse 3]
          G
I heard a siren from the docks
      C                      G
Saw a train set the night on fire
            
Smelled the spring on the smoky wind
           D              Em     G
Dirty old town, dirty old town


[Verse 4]
             G
I'm going to make a big sharp axe
         C                    G
Shining steel tempered in the fire
             
I'll cut you down like an old dead tree
          D               Em     G
Dirty old town, dirty old town


[Verse 5]
       G
Met my love, by the gas works wall
          C                 G
Dreamed a dream, by the old canal

I kissed my girl, by the factory wall
          D               Em
Dirty old town, dirty old town
          D               G
Dirty old town, dirty old town
