Intro: Em



Em      Em7M     Em7      Em6     C7M
She was sick and tired of country life.
                 Em
A little country home, A little country folk,
                   B7
Made her blood run cold.
        A7
Now her mother pines her heart away,
                                       Em
Looking for her child in the big black smoke,
                 Em
In the big black smoke.




Em        Em7M   Em7      Em6       C7M
Frailest, purest girl the world has seen,
                 Em 
According to her Ma, according to her Pa,
              B7
And everybody said,
         A7
That she knew no sin and did no wrong,
                                       Em
Till she walked the streets of the big black smoke,
                 Em
Of the big black smoke.


         B7
Well she slept in caffs and coffee bars and bowling alleys,
                    Em   B7
And every penny she had
    G                              B7
Was spent on purple hearts and cigarettes.



Em       Em7M    Em7    Em6      C7M
She took all her pretty coloured clothes,
                  Em
And ran away from home, And the boy next door
                B7
For a boy named Joe.
       A7
And he took her money for the rent
                                            Em
And tried to drag her down in the big black smoke,
                 Em
In the big black smoke.
                 Em
In the big black smoke.
                 Em
In the big black smoke.
