The Town I Loved So Well Recorded by The Dubliners Written by m Phil Coulter
D7 G D7 C G In my memory I will always see C G D7 The town that I have loved so well G D7 C G Where our school played ball by the gas yard wall C G D7 G And we laughed through the smoke and the smell
C D7 G Em Going home in the rain running up the dark lane C Am D7 Past the jail and down behind the fountain G D7 C G Those were happy days in so many many ways C G D7 G In the town I loved so well
D7 C G In the early morning the shirt-factory horn C G D7 Called women from Craigeen the Moor and the Bog G D7 C G While the man on the dole played the mother's role C G D7 G Fed the children and then trained the dogs
C D7 G Em And when times got tough there was just about enough C Am D7 But they saw it through without complaining G D7 C G For deep inside was a burning pride C G D7 G In the town I loved so well
D7 C G There was music there in the Derry air C G D7 Like a language that we could all understand G D7 C G I remember the day when I earned my first pay C G D7 G When I played in the small pick-up band
C D7 G D7 Em There I spent my youth and to tell you the truth C Am D7 I was sad to leave it all behind me G D7 C G For I'd learned about life and I've found a wife C G D7 G In the town I loved so well
D7 C G But when I returned how my eyes have burned C G D7 To see how a town could be brought to its knees G D7 C G By the armored cars and the bombed-out bars C G D7 G And the gas that hangs on to every breeze
C D7 G D7 Em Now the army's installed by that old gas yard wall C Am D7 And the damned barbed wire gets higher and higher G D7 C G With their tanks and their guns oh my God what have they done C G D7 G To the town I loved so well
D7 C G Now the music's gone but they carry on C G D7 For their spirit's been bruised never broken G D7 C G They will not forget but their hearts are a set C G D7 G On tomorrow and peace once again
C D7 G D7 Em For what's done is done and what's won is won C Am D7 And what's lost is lost and gone forever G D7 C G I can only pray for a bright brand new day C G D7 G In the town I loved so well
