DAGENHAM DAVE (STRANGLERS)
INTRO:  E    B    A    x2        D    A   E     x2

VERSE:
E   B   A                                           E   B   A
            Dave was from out of town             Manchester’s likely too
D   A   E                                           D   A   E
            Had read De Sade to Marx               More read than me or you
E   B   A                                           E   B   A
            Scaffolding pays good bread           It pays for drugs and kicks
D   A   E                                           D   A   E
            Dave only had one love                   had no real need for chicks

F#   G   A                                         F#   G    A                  F#
             Dave was so far ahead                     but now he’s dead

CHORUS:
E          B           A             D                A           E
I’m not going to cry        I bet he hit the water high
I’m not going to cry        I bet he hit the water high

VERSE:
I guess he lost control, and welcomed in the night
It was too much for him, what were his thoughts that night?
The river thames is cold, it keeps on flowing on
But it left Dave alone, it just kept flowing on.

F#   G   A                                         F#   G    A                  F#
             There’s city sickness here                 but now he’s dead

CHORUS:
E          B           A             D                A           E
I’m not going to cry        I bet he hit the water high
I’m not going to cry        I bet he hit the water high

BREAK:
G#           A             B                   C#
Late night a street in the west of the city
There was a place there where he lost himself
Strange feelings did he feel there, strange people
Did he meet there, angry sounds did he hear there
D                         A
Like the howling of bulls…..

CHORUS:
E          B           A             D                A           E
I’m not going to cry        I bet he hit the water high
I’m not going to cry        I bet he hit the water high
