F12              C13                D714       G715

5In his eyes you see no pride, and held loosely by his side

C43                 G44             Am45                   Em46
15Have you seen the old gal, who walks the streets of London
F47            C48               D749       G750
16dirt in her hair, and her clothes in rags?
C51                   G52          Am53                   Em54
17She's no time for talking, she just keeps right on walking
F55              C56       G757          C58
18Carrying her home, in two carrier bags
19

23Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London

26Verse:
C78                 G79        Am80                 Em81
27And in the all-night cafe, at a quarter past eleven
F82              C83                D784       G785
28some old man sitting there, all on his own
C86               G87             Am88               Em89
29Looking at the world, over the rim of his tea-cup
F90           C91               G792          C93
30Each day lasts an hour, then he wanders home alone
31
32Chorus:
C94      F95           Em96              C97    G98     Am99

C113                       G114          Am115                 Em116
39And have you seen the old man, outside the seaman's mission?
F117              C118                D7119                 G7120
40His memory's fading, with those medal ribbons that he wears
C121                  G122              Am123           Em124
41And in our winter city, the rain cries little pity
F125               C126                   G7127                C128
42For one more forgotten hero, and a world that doesn't care
43
44Chorus:
C129      F130           Em131              C132    G133     Am134
45    So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
D7135            D7136                     G137      G7138
46  and say for you that the sun don't shine?
C139               G140                Am141                   Em142
47Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
F143               C144             G7145                   C146      C147
48  I'll show you something, to make you change your mind
