The Inner City Song Lyrics And Chords, Written By Don Baker .This was a hit for ''The Jolly Beggermen '' and Don tells it just like it is about Dublin . If you want to play it like The Jolly Beggermen put a capo on the third fret and play the chords I've given . 

Intro: G-A-D-Bm          G-A7-D-(A)-D

 

The (D)old man sits and wonders just (Em)what can he do

He's (A)lived there in this (A7)neighborhood since (G)nineteen-twenty-(D)two

He's forced to leave his home to make (Em)way for their plans

And he (A)knows that they dont (A7)care or give a (D)damm

 

So he (D)takes a stroll down Monto whats (Em)left of it today

Re(A)membering his (A7)childhood and the (G)games he used to (D)play

Now all he's got are memories and (Em)they are but a few

And it (A)seems the money (A7)grabbers want them (D)too

 

Chorus

And (G)living in a (A)one room slum aint (D)easy

(G)Raising seven (A)children on the (D)dole

No (G)place for kids to (A)play while you (D)build your motor(Bm)way

Is (G)Loughlin house the play(A7)ground of to(D)day

 

(D)Dublin's inner city is a (Em)sorry sight to see

A (A)mass of filty (A7)buildings (G)strife and pover(D)ty

The people find it hard to make ends (Em)meet most of the time

And (A)you're surprised that (A7)they should turn to (D)crime

 

Chorus

 

The (D)greedy speculators are (Em)waiting to move in

With their (A)lawyers and their (A7)legal talk the (G)chances are they'll (D)win

They make their public speeches and give the (Em)people some old line

But you (A)know we wont be fooled so (A7)easily this (D)time

 

Chorus twice

 

Repeat Intro
