dirty old town lyrics – donovan

i found my love by the gasworks croft
dreamed a dream by the old c*n*l
i kissed my girl by the factory wall
dirty old town, dirty old town

i heard a siren from the docks
saw a train set the night on fire
smelled the spring in the saltkirk wind
dirty old town, dirty old town

we’ll go and make a good sharp axe
shining steel tempered in the fire
we’ll chop you down like an old dead tree
dirty old town, dirty old town

i found my love by the gasworks croft
dreamed a dream by the old c*n*l
i kissed my girl by the factory wall
dirty old town, dirty old town
