Intro:
   C  G  Am  Em
   F  C  G   C

Verse:
C                 G           Am                 Em
Have you seen the old man, in the closed-down market
F              C                D7       G7
picking up the papers, with his worn-out shoes?
C               G             Am               Em
In his eyes you see no pride, and held loosely by his side
F           C               G7          C
yesterday's papers, telling yesterday's news

Chorus:
C      F           Em              C    G     Am
So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
D7            D7                     G      G7
and say for you that the sun don't shine?
C               G                Am                   Em
Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
F               C             G7                   C      C
I'll show you something, to make you change your mind

Verse:
C                 G             Am                   Em
Have you seen the old gal, who walks the streets of London
F            C               D7       G7
dirt in her hair, and her clothes in rags?
C                   G          Am                   Em
She's no time for talking, she just keeps right on walking
F              C       G7          C
Carrying her home, in two carrier bags

Chorus:
C      F           Em              C    G     Am
So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
D7            D7                     G      G7
and say for you that the sun don't shine?
C               G                Am                   Em
Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
F               C             G7                   C      C
I'll show you something, to make you change your mind

Verse:
C                 G        Am                 Em
And in the all-night cafe, at a quarter past eleven
F              C                D7       G7
some old man sitting there, all on his own
C               G             Am               Em
Looking at the world, over the rim of his tea-cup
F           C               G7          C
Each day lasts an hour, then he wanders home alone

Chorus:
C      F           Em              C    G     Am
So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
D7            D7                     G      G7
and say for you that the sun don't shine?
C               G                Am                   Em
Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
F               C             G7                   C      C
I'll show you something, to make you change your mind

Verse:
C                       G          Am                 Em
And have you seen the old man, outside the seaman's mission?
F              C                D7                 G7
His memory's fading, with those medal ribbons that he wears
C                  G              Am           Em
And in our winter city, the rain cries little pity
F               C                   G7                C
For one more forgotten hero, and a world that doesn't care

Chorus:
C      F           Em              C    G     Am
    So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
D7            D7                     G      G7
  and say for you that the sun don't shine?
C               G                Am                   Em
Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
F               C             G7                   C      C
  I'll show you something, to make you change your mind
F               C             G                   C
  I'll show you something, to make you change your mind
