Streets of London

Ralph McTell

Key: C (C harp in 1st position)

5       5       5      6     6      6


Have you seen the old man 
  

5     -4       4         4      5      5


In the closed down market
   

4    4      4    4     4    4


Kicking up the papers 
   

4       4     -4      -4       5


With his worn out shoes
 

5   5      5      6      6     6     5


In his eyes you see no pride
   

4      4       4    5    5    -5    5


And held loosely by his side
   

4     4   4      4   4    3    3      3   -3//  -3     4


Yesterday’s paper telling yesterday’s news

 


4    -5     -5     -5    5    5        6      6   -5    5


So how can you tell me you’re lo-one-ly
 

-4   -4      -4  -4     -3//    -3//      4     -3        -2


and say for you   that     the     sun  don’t  shine
 

5     5     5       6     6    6       5 


Let me take you by the hand
 

-4     4       -3         4       -4        5       -5    5     4


and lead you through the streets of London
 

4      4       4        4        4


I’ll show you something 


3      3         3       -3//     -3        4


To make you change your mind
