The open Ds and A give a nice folky drone - but i'll just call the chords D C Bb from now

D C x4

D  C  D  C  C  Bb  Bb C D
C  Bb  Bb C D

     D             C                       D               C
Well Dirty Davey's down the front and he's met the coppers there
           C                      Bb
They'll be taking you in cos they hate your skin
         Bb       C          D
And he's dragged away by the hair

CHORUS
       D                      C
It's a kick in the head and a prison bed
        Bb      C        D
And you tell me it's the law

D C Bb C

D  C  D  C  C  Bb C D

Well Davey's out on two weeks bail and he's down the town to score
When it all falls in and he's pinned by the chin
And they'vve rusted every floor

It's a kick in the head and a prison bed
And you tell me it's the law

Davey's down the old grey squat
And he's lying with his lass
When there's a brick through the pane
ANd he's out on the lane
With the bailiffs and the glass

It's a kick in the head and a prison bed
And you tell me it's the law

The court comes up on Monday morning and Davey's in the dock
He can't stop his tears when he gets two years
And you can't turn back the clock

It's a kick in the head and a prison bed
And you tell me it's the law

REEL break - easy to bash through using the same 3 chords

SLOW
     D              C
Well Davey's had it up to here
D                       C
Banging his head on the wall
      C                     Bb     C
So he tied his pants to the prison bars
         Bb             C           D             (1,2,3,4)
And he's hung till he's clear of it all

It's a kick in the head and a prison bed
And you tell me it's the law

There's a law for the rich and a law for the poor
And a law for Dirty Davey
His body's gone but his soul lives on
Here's to you Dirty Davey

Its Corrupt, corrupt from the bottom to the top
And you tell me it's the law


Thats the lot, a great workout for the right hand, a no-brainer for the left
