I found my love 'neath the gasworks falls

Dreamed a dream by the old canal

Kissed my girl by the factory wall

                 5                     6m

Dirty old town, dirty old town

Clouds are drifting across the moon
Cats are prowling on their beat

Springs a girl in the streets at night

Dirty old town, dirty old town

Heard a siren from the dock
Saw a train set the night on fire

Smelled the spring on the smoky wind

Dirty old town, dirty old town

I'm going to take a good sharp ax
Shining steel tempered in the fire

We'll chop you down like an old dead tree

Dirty old town, dirty old town
