E                 H              C#m         G#m
Have you seen the old man in the closed down market,
A               E               F#/F#m   H
Kicking out the papers with his worn out shoes?
E               H              C#m               G#m
In his eyes you see no pride.  Hand held loosely by his side,
A           E             H           E
Yesterday's paper telling yesterday's news.

CHORUS

     A              E              H    E
     So how can you tell me you're lonely,
     F#                                        H
     And you say for you that the sun don't shine?
     E               H               C#m                  G#m
     Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London,
     A             E            H                    E
     I'll show you something to make you change your mind.

E                  H            C#m       G#m
Have you seen the old girl, who walks the streets of London
A           E             F#/F#m     H
dirt in her hair, and her clothes in rags?
E                 H            C#m                 G#m
She's no time for talking, she just keeps right on walking
A            E            H       E
Carrying her home, in two carrier bags.

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

CHORUS

     A              E              H    E
     So how can you tell me you're lonely,
     F#                                        H
     And you say for you that the sun don't shine?
     E               H               C#m                  G#m
     Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London,
     A             E            H                    E
     I'll show you something to make you change your mind.

E                H         C#m          G#m
In the all night cafe at a quarter past eleven,
A          E         F#/F#m       H
Same old man sitting there on his own.
E              H              C#m        G#m
Looking at the world over the rim of his tea cup,
A                E             H            E
Each tea lasts a hour, then he wanders home alone.

CHORUS

     A              E              H    E
     So how can you tell me you're lonely,
     F#                                        H
     And you say for you that the sun don't shine?
     E               H               C#m                  G#m
     Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London,
     A             E            H                    E
     I'll show you something to make you change your mind.

E                 H          C#m               G#m
Have you seen the old man outside the seamen's mission?
A             E              F#/F#m          H
Memory fading with the medal ribbons that he wears.
E                H             C#m            G#m
In this lonesome city the rain cries a little pity,
    A                  E         H                  E
For one more forgotten hero in a world that doesn't care.


/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

CHORUS

     A              E              H    E
     So how can you tell me you're lonely,
     F#                                        H
     And you say for you that the sun don't shine?
     E               H               C#m                  G#m
     Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London,
     A             E            H                    E
     I'll show you something to make you change your mind.
                                        decrescendo
