Standard tuning, Capo 4

Dm                 E7 
I am a chimbley, a chimbley sweep
Dm
No bed to lie, no shoes to hold my feet
Dm                   E7
Upon the rooftops in dead of night
Dm                                           Dm
You’ll hear me cry, I’ll shake you from your sleep
           F
To hear me weep
      G               F
"Your day will come indeed
Dm         F          F        Dm
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
  Dm       E7       Dm
A chimbley chimbley sweep."


Dm              E7
I am an orphan, an orphan boy
Dm
I’ve known no love, I’ve seen no mother’s joy
Dm               E7
A dirty doorstep my cradle laid
Dm                                          Dm
My fortune's made: I’ll shake you from your sleep
           F
To hear me weep
      G               F
"Your day will come indeed.
Dm         F          F        Dm
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
  Dm       E7       Dm
A chimbley chimbley sweep."


 Dm                E7
"O lonely urchin!" the widow cried
 Dm
"I’ve not been swept since the day my husband died."
Dm                         E7
Her cheeks a blushing, her legs laid bare
Dm                                             Dm
And shipwrecked there I’ll shake you from your sleep
           F
To hear me weep
      G               F
"Your day will come indeed.
Dm         F          F        Dm
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
  Dm       E7       Dm
A chimbley chimbley sweep."
Dm         F          F        Dm
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
  Dm       E7       Dm
A chimbley chimbley sweep."
