          GG chord
I met my love, by the gas works wall
           CC chord                 GG chord
Dreamed a dream, by the old canal

I kissed my girl, by the factory wall
           DD chord               EmEm chord
Dirty old town, dirty old town


            GG chord
Clouds are drifting across the moon
          CC chord                 GG chord
Cats are prowling on their beats

Springs a girl on the streets at night
 DD chord               EmEm chord
dirty old town, dirty old town

         GG chord
Heard a siren from the dock
      CC chord                      GG chord
saw a train cut the night on fire

smelled the breeze on the smokey wind
           DD chord              EmEm chord
dirty old town, dirty old town


             GG chord
I'm going to make me a big sharp ax
         CC chord                    GG chord
Shining steel tempered in the fire

I'll chop you down like an old dead tree
          DD chord               EmEm chord
dirty old town, dirty old town


         GG chord
I met my love, by the gas works wall
          CC chord                  GG chord
Dreamed a dream, by the old canal

I kissed my girl, by the factory wall
           DD chord               EmEm chord
Dirty old town, dirty old town
           DD chord               EmEm chord
Dirty old town, dirty old town

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
