       D             G            A       D
When I first came to London I was only sixteen
       G           A             D           A
With a fiver in my pocket and my ole dancing bag
  G                A        D             A
I went down to the dilly to check out the scene
      D          G           A        D
And I soon ended up upon the old main drag
 
          D                G           A         D
There the he-males and the she-males paraded in style
        G                A           D            A
And the old man with the money would flash you a smile
       G          A           D           A
In the dark of an alley you'd work for a fiver
       D                G                 A        D
For a swift one off the wrist down on the old main drag
 
       D           G              A           D
In the cold winter nights the old town it was chill
               G           A           D              A
But there were boys in the cafes who'd give you cheap pills
       G               A             D             A
If you didn't have the money you'd cajole or you'd beg
          D              G             A        D
There was always lots of tuinol on the old main drag
 
INSTRUMENTAL
| A   | A   |
 
       D             G             A         D
One evening as I was lying down by Leicester Square
       G               A           D             A
I was picked up by the coppers and kicked in the balls
            G              A                 D          A
Between the metal doors at Vine Street I was beaten and mauled
         D              G             A        D
And they ruined my good looks for the old main drag
 
       D                G                 A          D
In the tube station the old ones who were on the way out
      G           A         D          A
Would dribble and vomit and grovel and shout
        G             A              D           A
And the coppers would come along and push them about
       D             G               A        D
And I wished I could escape from the old main drag
 
         D   G              A            D
And now I'm lying here I've had too much booze
          G           A           D           A
I've been spat on and shat on and raped and abused
   G             A           D            A
I know that I am dying and I wish I could beg
         D        G                A
For some money to take me from the old main drag
