The United Steel Workers Of Montreal
Émile Bertrand by The United Steel Workers of Montreal NOTE: The lyrics for this tab have been taken predominantly from the liner notes. the version on their album contains a few different lyrics and an additional verse. As I done my best to provide accurate lyrics for the song as it is played on the album, the additional verse. Enjoy.... and don't tell me if I am wrong because I don't want know. Intro: C F (x 4) C F Dirty boats and filthy ropes. C F Sore backs from crooked jacks. C F Straw boss and Irish moss. Am G Kerosene and coal. C F Slinging hash and counting cash. C F Coffee stains and neck strains. C F Manager smiles at broken tiles Am G on the greasy old floors. Bridge: Am F C G Am F G Am F C G Am F C C F Slow pokes and tow ropes. C F Sailors knots and widows plots. C F We hear the yell of the the steeple bell, Am G Of St. Cunégonde. C F Cads' hands and frying pans. C F Cash in, clear the bin. C F Mopping floors and closing doors. Am G I'm on my way home to you. Chorus: Am F C G But dreaming just comes easy Am F G When the work is too hard to bear. Am F C G But staring in your eyes dear, Am F C believing our dreams can be here. Bridge: C F C F C F Am G C F We meet at night, neath the dirty light. C F Filthy jeans with worn out seams C F Lunch box is out of hock. Am G Will we drink the night away? Extra verse... C F Change your shoes, this afternoon C F You fixed your hair because you care C F Lipstick will do the trick Am G Will we dance until the dawn? Chorus: Am F C G But dreaming just comes easy Am F G When the work is too hard to bear. Am F C G But staring in your eyes dear, Am F C Means believing our dreams can be here. C F It's near to four, they locked the door. C F Descend the stairs, the dreams we share. C F The neon lights are outta sight Am G As we walk hand in hand home.
