Irish Pub Song Of The Day – Dirty Old Town Accompaniment for Frailing Banjo

This week’s accompaniment is for the Irish Pub Song Of The Day, Dirty Old Town. I changed everything from the right to the left this week. Why? I have no really good reason. I’m getting a bit better with the green screen effect and next week should be even better.

Just play along and have fun!

DIRTY OLD TOWN

I[G] met my love by the gas works wall,
Dreamed a[C] dream by the old ca[G]nal,
I [C]kissed my [G]girl by the factory wall,
Dirty old[Am] town,[D7]dirty old[D] town

I heard a siren from the docks,
Saw a train set the noght on fire,
Smelled the spring on the smoky wind,
Dirty old town, dirty old town.

Clouds are drifting across the moon,
Cats are prowling on their beat
Springs a girl from the streets at night,
Dirty old town, dirty old town.

I’m going to make me a good sharp axe,
Shining steel, tempered in the fire,
I’ll chop you down like an old dead tree,
Dirty old town, dirty old town.

Will the Circle be Unbroken

Will the [G]circle be unbroken by and [C]by Lord, by and [G]by?

There’s a better home a waiting in the sky, Lord [D7]in the [G]sky

I was standing by the window on one cold and cloudy day

When I saw that hearse come rolling for to carry my mother away

Lord, I told the undertaker, “Undertaker, please drive slow,

For this body that your hauling, Lord, I hate to see her go.”

Oh, I followed close behind her, tried to hold up and be brave,

But I cold not hide my sorrow when they laid her in the grave

Went back home, Lord, my home was lonesome since my mother, she was gone;

All my brothers, sisters crying what a home so sad and lone.

Now my mother, she’s crossed over where so many have gone before.

And I know, Lord, I will meet her just waiting at glory’s door.
