[E] I never thought it would  
[A] happen 

With me and the girl from  
[E] Clapham 

Out on the windy  
[C#m] common 

That night I ain't  
[E] forgotten 

Where she dealt out the  
[A] rations 

With some or other  
[E] passions 

I said you are a  
[C#m] lady 

Perhaps she said  
[E] I may be 

[E] We moved into a  
[A] basement 

With talks of our  
[E] engagement 

We stayed in by the  
[C#m] telly 

Although the room was  
[E] smelly 

We spent our time just  
[A] kissin' 

The Railway Arms we're  
[E] missin' 

But love had got us  
[C#m] hooked up 

And all the time it  
[E] took off 

[E] I got a job with  
[A] Stanley 

He said I'd come in  
[E] handy 

And he started me on  
[C#m] Monday 

So I had a bath on  
[E] Sunday 

I worked eleven  
[A] hours 

And bought the girl some  
[E] flowers 

She said she'd seen a  
[C#m] doctor 

And nothing now could  
[E] stop her 

[C#m] I worked all through the  
[G#m] winter 

The weather brass and  
[F#m] bitter 

I put away a  
[Bm] tenner 

Each week to make her  
[Dm] better 

And when the time was  
[Am] ready 

We had to sell the  
[Gm] telly 

Late evenings by the  
[F] fire 

And little kicks  
[A] inside her 

[D] This morning at four  
[G] fifty 

I took her rather  
[D] nifty 

Down to an incu 

Where thirty minutes  
[D] later 

She gave birth to a  
[G] daughter 

Within a year a  
[D] walker 

She looked just like her  
[Bm] mother 

If there could be  
[D] another  

[E] And now she's two years  
[A] older 

Her mother's with a  
[E] soldier 

She left me with my  
[C#m] drinkin' 

Became a proper  
[E] stingin' 

The devil came and  
[A] took me 

From bar to street to  
[E] bookie 

No more nights by the  
[C#m] telly 

No more nights nappies  
[E] smelling 

[E] Alone here in the  
[A] kitchen 

I feel there's somethin'  
[E] missin' 

I beg for some for 

But beggin's not my  
[E] business 

And she won't write a  
[A] letter 

Although I always  
[E] tell her 

And so it's my  
[C#m] assumption 

I'm really up the  
[E] junction
