STREETS OF LONDON chords and lyrics By RALPH MCTELL

  VERSION 1  

Verse :
G                 D               Em          Bm
Have you seen the old man, in the closed-down market
C              G                A7       D7
picking up the papers, with his worn-out shoes?
G               D             Em                Bm
In his eyes you see no pride, hand held loosely by his side
C           G               D7          G
yesterday's papers, telling yesterday's news

Chorus :
G      C           Bm              G         Em
    So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
A7            A7                     D      D7
  and say for you that the sun don't shine?
G               D                Em                   Bm
Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
C               G             D7                   G      G
  I'll show you something, to make you change your mind

Verse :
G                 D            Em                   Bm
Have you seen the old gal, who walks the streets of London
C           G             A7         D7
dirt in her hair, and her clothes in rags?
G                 D                 Em             Bm
She's no time for talking, she just keeps right on walking
C            G        D7            G
Carrying her home, in two carrier bags

Chorus :
G      C           Bm              G         Em
    So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
A7            A7                     D      D7
  and say for you that the sun don't shine?
G               D                Em                   Bm
Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
C               G             D7                   G      G
  I'll show you something, to make you change your mind

Verse :
G                    D          Em           Bm
And in the all-night cafe, at a quarter past eleven
C        G                A7           D7
some old man sitting there, all on his own
G               D             Em          Bm
Looking at the world, over the rim of his tea-cup
C                 G             D7           G
Each day lasts an hour, then he wanders home alone

Chorus :
G      C           Bm              G         Em
    So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
A7            A7                     D      D7
  and say for you that the sun don't shine?
G               D                Em                   Bm
Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
C               G             D7                   G      G
  I'll show you something, to make you change your mind

Verse :
G                     D        Em                 Bm
And have you seen the old man, outside the seaman's mission?
C            G                  A7                    D7
His memory's fading, with those medal ribbons that he wears
G                 D         Em                Bm
And in our winter city, the rain cries little pity
C                      G            D7                G
For one more forgotten hero, and a world that doesn't care

Chorus :
G      C           Bm              G         Em
    So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
A7            A7                     D      D7
  and say for you that the sun don't shine?
G               D                Em                   Bm
Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
C               G             D7                   G      G
  I'll show you something, to make you change your mind
