  G                                           F
I work for the foundry for a penny and a half a day  
 
           C                      G
Like a blind street musician I never see those who pay  
 
      Am              C
It's dirty work in Birmingham  
 
           C
Better deal for a Sheffield man  
 
        G                     Am        C
If he can rivet then his kids can buy  
 
C                                    F  | C |  G
Candy from the candy man  
 
 
CHORUS:
              F               C/G
And the van that comes around weekends  
 
            F                C/G
Selling fancy city things  
 
F                         C/G
Sold by the man with the trilby hat  
 
             F            C/E
And the whiskers spread like wings  
 
                Am7
You can hear him sing  
 
                     D
Oh you can hear him sing  
 
                G       G/B                       C
Can I put you on,  people can I put you on  
 
D                             G
Tell you that I love you people  
 
                C                             F | C | G
Sing a salesman's song and put you on  
 
 
 
          G                                                  F
And a second cousin works in the pits in Newcastle on Tyne  
 
             C                                                     G
And he don't care if it rains outside, there's coal dust on his mind  
 
      Am              C
It's dirty work in Manchester  
 
            C
But the crew gets paid its gelt  
 
G                   Am
Bang on the bell on Friday  
 
C                               C       F  | C | G
You buys a little something for yourself  
 
Chorus
              F               C/G
And the van that comes around weekends  
 
            F                C/G
Selling fancy city things  
 
F                         C/G
Sold by the man with the trilby hat  
 
             F            C/E
And the whiskers spread like wings  
 
                Am7
You can hear him sing  
 
                     D
Oh you can hear him sing  
 
                G       G/B                       C
Can I put you on,  people can I put you on  
 
D                             G
Tell you that I love you people  
 
                C                             F | C | G
Sing a salesman's song and put you on  
 
(Repeat Chorus)

  G          F           C                                       G
