"Dirty Old Town" (karaoke)

"Dirty Old Town" (sheet music)


I met my love by the gasworks’ wall,

Dreamed a dream by the old canal,

I kissed my girl by the fact’ry wall,

Dirty old town, dirty old town.

 

Clouds a-drifting across the moon,

Cats a-prowling on their beat,

Springs a girl from the streets at night,

Dirty old town, dirty old town.

 

I heard a siren from the docks,

Saw a train set the night on fire,

I smelled the spring on the smoky wind,

Dirty old town, dirty old town.

 

I’m goin’ to make me a big, sharp axe,

Shining steel tempered in the fire,

I’ll chop you down like an old, dead tree,

Dirty old town, dirty old town.

 

I met my love by the gasworks’ wall,

Dreamed a dream by the old canal,

I kissed my girl by the fact’ry wall,

Dirty old town, dirty old town.

 

Dirty old town, dirty old town.
