Capo IV

Streets of London

Ralph McTell

C G Am Em
Have you seen the old man in the closed down market,
F C D7 G7
kicking up the paper with his worn out shoes.
C G Am Em
In his eyes you see no pride, hand held loosely at his side,
F C G C
Yestedrays paper telling yesterdays news.
F Em Clo-one-Am D7 G G7
So how can you tell me you're ly - And 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 G7 C
I'll show you something to make to change your mind.
 
Have you seen the old girl who walks the streets of London, 
Dirt in her hair and her clothes in rags. 
She's no time for talkin' she just keep right on walking, 
Carrying her home in two carrier bags. 
So how can you tell me you're lonely - And say for you that the sun don't shine. 
Let me take you by the hand - And lead you through the streets of London: 
I'll show you something to make to change your mind. 
 
In the allnight cafe at a quarter past eleven, 
the same old man sitting there on his own. 
Looking at the world over the rim of his tea cup, 
Each tea lasts an hour and he wanders home alone. 
So how can you tell me you're lonely - Don't say for you that the sun don't shine. 
Let me take you by the hand - And lead you through the streets of London: 
I'll show you something to make to change your mind. 
 
Have you seen the old man, outside the seaman's mission, 
memory fading with the medal ribbons that he wears. 
In our winter city the rain cries a little pity 
For one more forgotten hero and a world that doesn't care. 
So how can you tell me you're lonely - And say for you that the sun don't shine. 
Let me take you by the hand - And lead you through the streets of London: 
I'll show you something to make to change your mind.
