VERSE 1

E                      Amaj7
I never thought it would happen
                          E
With me and the girl from Clapham
                 C#m
Out on the windy common
                   E
That night I ain't forgotten
                        Amaj7
Where she dealt out the rations
                   E
With some or other passions
                 C#m
I said you are a lady
                 E
Perhaps she said I may be



VERSE 2
E               Amaj7
We moved into a basement
                  E
With talks of our engagement
                    C#m
We stayed in by the telly
                      E
Although the room was smelly
                       Amaj7
We spent our time just kissin'
                       E
The Railway Arms we're missin'
                    C#m
But love had got us hooked up
                   E
And all the time it took up

VERSE 3 
E                Amaj7
I got a job with Stanley
                    E
He said I'd come in handy
                    C#m
And he started me on Monday
                   E
So I had a bath on Sunday
               Amaj7
I worked eleven hours
                         E
And bought the girl some flowers
                      C#m
She said she'd seen a doctor
               E
And nothing now could stop her




BRIDGE

C#m                      G#m
I worked all through the winter
                      F#m
The weather brass and bitter
             Bm
I put away a tenner
                      Dm
Each week to make her better
                      Am
And when the time was ready
                   Gm
We had to sell the telly
                     F
Late evenings by the fire
                 A
And little kicks inside her


VERSE 4


D                    Gmaj7
This morning at four fifty
                  D
I took her rather nifty
               E7/B
Down to an incubator
                     D
Where thirty minutes later
                    Gmaj7
She gave birth to a daughter
                D
Within a year a walker
                         Bm
She looked just like her mother
                  D       D A E
If there could be another


VERSE 5
E                      Amaj7
And now she's two years older
                    E
Her mother's with a soldier
                    C#m
She left me with my drinkin'
                E
Became a proper stingin'
                   Amaj7
The devil came and took me
                      E
From bar to street to bookie
                      C#m
No more nights by the telly
                       E
No more nights nappies smelling


VERSE 6
E                 Amaj7
Alone here in the kitchen
                        E
I feel there's somethin' missin'
                  C#m
I beg for some forgiveness
                    E
But beggin's not my business
                      Amaj7
And she won't write a letter
                  E
Although I always tell her
               C#m
And so it's my assumption
             E
I'm really up the junction
