Dirty Old Town Chords

   
Here are the chords for Dirty Old Town (an Ewan MacColl song) as played by Ted Leo 
on Tell Balgeary, Balgury Is Dead.

I don't know if it's actually played in E, that's just how I play it. You can 
transpose it as necessary.

The A/C# chord is played x4222x, and the E7 chord is 020100 (not the other way). 
Everything else is standard.
