Streets of London
By Ralph McTell
Rise Up Singing chapter: City, p.21
C G Am Em / F C D G / C G Am Em / F C G C
Have you seen the old man in the closed down market?
Kicking up the papers with his worn-out shoes?
In his eyes you see no pride, hands held loosely at his sides
Yesterday's paper telling yesterday's news
F Em G Am / D - G - / C G Am Em / F C G C
So how can you tell me you're lonely
And say for you that the sun don't shine?
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind
More verses that I'll type up later.....
