Dirty Old Town


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 

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 

Heard a si- ren from the docks 
Saw a train set the night on fire 
Smelled the spring in the smokey wind 
Dirty old town dirty old town 

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