Streets Of London

	  C	               G	 Am	        Em 
Have you seen the old man in the closed down market, 
F	             C		F	   G7 
Kicking out the papers with his worn out shoes? 
C                      G	            Am	      Em
In his eyes you see no pride.  Hand held loosely by his side, 
F	   C               G               C 
Yesterday's paper telling yesterday's news. 
 
Chorus 
          F              Em 	   C   Am 
     So how can you tell me you're lonely, 
        D7				    G    G7
     And you say for you that the sun don't shine? 
     C                      G                      Am	                     Em 
     Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London, 
     F                C                 G                     C 
     I'll show you something that'll make you change your mind. 
 
D	               A	 Bm	        F#m 
Have you seen the old girl who walks the streets of London? 
G             D	E	 A 
Dirt in her hair and her clothes in rags. 
D                      A	            Bm	      F#m 
She's no time for talking, she just keeps right on walking, 
G	   D          A               D 
Carrying her home in two carrier bags. 
 
Chorus 
          G                 D	   A   Bm 
     So how can you tell me you're lonely, 
        E				A 
     And you say for you that the sun don't shine? 
     D                      A                      Bm	                     F#m 
     Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London, 
     G                D                      A                                D 
     I'll show you something that'll make you change your mind. 
 
D	       A	   Bm	       F#m 
In the all night cafe at a quarter past eleven, 
G            D	E	   A 
Same old man sitting there on his own. 
D                      A	            Bm        F#m 
Looking at the world over the rim of his tea cup, 
G	         D                  A                   D 
Each tea lasts a hour, then he wanders home alone. 
 
Chorus 
          G              F#m D	    A   Bm 
     So how can you tell me you're lonely, 
        E				A 
     And you say for you that the sun don't shine? 
     D                      A                      Bm	                     F#m 
     Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London, 
     G                D                      A                                D 
     I'll show you something that'll make you change your mind. 
 
D	             A	         Bm	                         F#m 
Have you seen the old man outside the seamen's mission? 
G	      D		E	   A 
Memory fading with the medal ribbons that he wears. 
D                 A	     Bm	      F#m 
And in the winter city the rain cries a little pity, 
G	                  D           A                        D 
For one more forgotten hero in a world that doesn't care. 
 
Chorus 
          G              F#m D	    A   Bm  
     So how can you tell me you're lonely, 
        E				A 
     And you say for you that the sun don't shine? 
     D                      A                      Bm	                     F#m 
     Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London, 
     G                D                      A                                D 
     I'll show you something that'll make you change your mind.
