Dirty Old Town

Melody -

1. I met my love by the gas works wall
Dreamed a dream by the old canal
I kissed a girl by the factory wall
Dirty old town, dirty old town.

2. Clouds a drifting across the moon
Cats a prowling on their beat
Spring's a girl in the street at night
Dirty old town dirty old town.
  3. Heard a siren from the docks
Saw a train set the night on fire
Smelled the spring in the smokey wind
Dirty old town, dirty old town.

4. I'm going to make a good sharp axe
Shining steel tempered in the fire
Will chop you down like an old dead tree
