LUKE KELLY


Dirty Old Town Lyrics

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

I heard a siren from the docks
I saw a train set the night on fire
I 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 take me a good sharp ax
Shining steel tempered in the fire
I'll chop you down like an old dead tree
Dirty old town, dirty old town

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