GG chord                        CC chord
I never thought it would happen
                          GG chord
With me and the girl from Clapham
                 EmEm chord
Out on the windy common
                   GG chord
That night I ain't forgotten
                        CC chord
Where she dealt out the rations
                   GG chord
With some or other passions
                 EmEm chord
I said you are a lady
                 GG chord
Perhaps she said I may be


GG chord                  CC chord
We moved into a basement
                    GG chord
With talks of our engagement
                     EmEm chord
We stayed in by the telly
                       GG chord
Although the room was smelly
                        CC chord
We spent our time just kissin'
                        GG chord
The Railway Arms we're missin'
                      EmEm chord
But love had got us hooked up
                     GG chord 
And all the time it took off


GG chord                  CC chord
I got a job with Stanley
                     GG chord
He said I'd come in handy
                      EmEm chord
And he started me on Monday
                    GG chord
So I had a bath on Sunday
                 CC chord
I worked eleven hours
                          GG chord
And bought the girl some flowers
                       EmEm chord
She said she'd seen a doctor
                       GG chord
And nothing now could stop her


EmEm chord                      BmBm chord
I worked all through the winter
                      AmAm chord
The weather brass and bitter
             DD chord
I put away a tenner
                      FF chord
Each week to make her better
                      CmCm chord
And when the time was ready
                   BbmBbm chord
We had to sell the telly
                     AbAb chord
Late evenings by the fire
                 CC chord
And little kicks inside her


FF chord                    BbBb chord
This morning at four fifty
                  FF chord
I took her rather nifty
               DmDm chord
Down to an incubator
                     FF chord
Where thirty minutes later
                    BbBb chord
She gave birth to a daughter
                FF chord
Within a year a walker
                         DmDm chord
She looked just like her mother
                  FF chord       FF chord CC chord GG chord
If there could be another


GG chord                       CC chord
And now she's two years older
                     GG chord
Her mother's with a soldier
                     EmEm chord
She left me with my drinkin'
                 GG chord
Became a proper stingin'
                    CC chord
The devil came and took me
                       GG chord
From bar to street to bookie
                       EmEm chord
No more nights by the telly
                        GG chord
No more nights nappies smelling


GG chord                  CC chord
Alone here in the kitchen
                          GG chord
I feel there's somethin' missin'
                CC chord
I beg for some forgiveness
                     GG chord
But beggin's not my business
                       CC chord
And she won't write a letter
                   GG chord
Although I always tell her
                 EmEm chord
And so it's my assumption
                    GG chord
I'm really up the junction
