Verse

C                 G        Am                 Em
Have you seen the old man, in the closed-down market
F              C                F        G7
kicking up the papers, with his worn-out shoes?
C               G             Am               Em
In his eyes you see no pride, and held loosely by his side
F           C               G7          C
yesterday's papers, telling yesterday's news

Chorus

C      F           Em              C    G    Am
    So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
D7            D7                     G      G7
  and say for you that the sun don't shine?
C               G           
Let me take you by the hand, 
    Am                   Em
and lead you through the streets of London
F             C             G7                   C
I'll show you something, to make you change your mind
C G Am Em

Verse 2

C                 G            Am                   Em
Have you seen the old gal, who walks the streets of London
F           C             F          G7
dirt in her hair, and her clothes in rags?
C                 G            Am                  Em
She's no time for talking, she just keeps right on walking
F            C            G7      C
Carrying her home, in two carrier bags

Chorus

C      F           Em              C    G    Am
    So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
D7            D7                     G      G7
  and say for you that the sun don't shine?
C               G           
Let me take you by the hand, 
    Am                   Em
and lead you through the streets of London
F             C             G7                   C
I'll show you something, to make you change your mind
C G Am Em

Verse 3

C                    G          Am            Em
And in the all-night cafe, at a quarter past eleven
F            C              F          G7
same old man sitting there, all on his own
C               G              Am         Em
Looking at the world, over the rim of his tea-cup
F                 C             G7            C
Each tea lasts an hour, then he wanders home alone

Chorus

C      F           Em              C    G    Am
    So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
D7            D7                     G      G7
  and say for you that the sun don't shine?
C               G           
Let me take you by the hand, 
    Am                   Em
and lead you through the streets of London
F             C             G7                   C
I'll show you something, to make you change your mind

Verse 4

C                     G           Am                Em
And have you seen the old man, outside the seaman's mission?
    F        C                  D7            G7
His memory's fading, with those medal ribbons that he wears
    C             G              Am           Em
And in our winter city, the rain cries little pity
    F                  C           G7                 C
For one more forgotten hero, and a world that doesn't care

Chorus

C      F           Em              C    G    Am
    So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
D7            D7                     G      G7
and say for you that the sun don't shine?
C               G                Am                   Em
Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
F             C             G7                   C
I'll show you something, to make you change your mind

Chorus

C      F           Em              C    G    Am
    So how can you tell me, you're lo - ne - ly
D7          D7                     G      G7
and say for you that the sun don't shine?
C               G                Am                   Em
Let me take you by the hand, and lead you through the streets of London
F             C             G7                   C
I'll show you something, to make you change your mind
