Dirty Old Town (Live)

Dirty Old Town

I met my love by the gas works wall
Dreamed a dream by the old canal
I kissed my girl by the factory wall
Dirty old town, dirty old town

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

I heard a siren from the docks
Saw a train set the night on fire
I felt the spring in the falling rain
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
