Big Black Smoke

	  		Em 
Em       Em/D#    Em/D     Em/Db   Em/C 
She was sick and tired of country life 
                  Em 
A little country home, a little country home 
                     B Bsus4 B Bsus4 B 
Made her blood run cold 
          Am 
Now her mother pines her heart away 
                  G           D         Em 
Looking for her child in the big black smoke 
 G       D        Em   Em/D# Em/D Em/Db 
In the big black smoke 

Frailest, purest girl the world has seen 
According to her ma, according to her pa 
And everybody said 
That she knew no sin and did no wrong 
Till she walked the streets of the big black smoke 
Of the big black smoke 

BRIDGE: 
           B 
Well she slept in cafes and coffee bars and bowling alleys 
                     Em G D 
And every penny she had 
      G                             B 
Was spent on purple hearts and cigarettes 


Ah, she took all her pretty coloured clothes 
Ran away from home, the boy next door 
For a boy named Joe 
And he took the money for the rent 
Tried to drag her down in the big black smoke 
In the big black smoke 

  G      D          Em 
(In the big black smoke) In the big black smoke 
G        D          Em                      D C D 
(In the big black smoke) In the big black smoooooke 
 D  C  D     D  C  D    D  C  D   D C D  D C D 
Smoooooke, smoooooke, smoooooke, oh oh, oh oh
