[Verse]
G          D        C      G
In my memory I will always see
    C         G               D
The town that I have loved so well
          G             D           C       G
Where our school played ball by the gasyard wall
       C                   G     D   G
And we laughed through the smoke and smell.
      Em          D            C           G
Going home in the rain running up the dark lane
         C        Am              D
Past the jail and down beside the fountain
           G     D          C         G
Those were happy days in so many many ways
       C      G     D  G
In the town I loved so well.

[Verse]
G            D           C             G
In the early morning the shirt factory horn
       C          G                         D
Called women from Creggan, the Moor and the Bog
          G          D             C       G
While the men on the dole played a mothers role
        C            G    D          G
Fed the children and then walked the dog
         Em        D                C          G
And when times got rough, there was just about enough
         C      Am              D
But they saw it through without complaining
    G      D          C       G
For deep inside was a burning pride
        C      G     D  G
for the town I loved so well.

[Verse]
G               D            C     G
There was music there in the Derry air
       C             G                     D
Like a language that we all could understand
     G         D          C               G
I remember the day when I earned my first pay
     C           G     D      G
as I played in a small pickup band
        Em       D            C            G
There I spent my youth and to tell you the truth
      C      Am           D
I was sad to leave it all behind me
        G             D            C       G
For I'd learned about life and I'd found a wife
       C      G     D  G
In the town I loved so well.

[Verse]
G             D            C                   G
But when I returned, oh my eyes, how they had burned
   C         G                             D
To see how a town could be brought to it's knees
       G        D            C          G
By the armoured cars and the bombed out bars
        C              G     D     G
And the gas that hangs on to every breeze
        Em       D               C           G
Now the army's installed by that old gasyard wall
        C             Am                   D
And the damned barbed wire gets higher and higher
           G         D           C                   G
With their tanks and guns, oh my God, what have they done
       C      G     D  G
To the town I loved so well.

[Verse]
G               D             C     G
Now the music's gone but they carry on
           C            G                   D
For their spirit's been bruised, never broken
            G       D              C          G
Oh, they'll not forget still their hearts are set
   C            G     D    G
On tomorrow and peace once again
           Em      D               C      G
Now what's done is done and what's won is won
           C       Am7             D
And what's lost is lost and gone forever
      G    D          C                G
I can only pray for a bright brand new day
       C      G     D  G
In the town I loved so well.
