On Silvertown way the cranes stand high

Quiet and gray against the still of the sky

They won't quit and lay down though the action has died

They watch the new game in town on the Blackwall side

From the poisonous drains a vision appears

A new circle of cranes, a new reason to be here

A big silver dome rising up into the dawn

Above the church and the homes where all the silver is gone

Gm Dm C

If I'd a bucket of gold, what would I do

Am Bb Dm

I'd leave the story untold Silvertown blues

F Bb

Going down in Silvertown

Gm F

Down in Silvertown

Bb C

Going down in Silvertown

Gm F

Down in Silvertown

A silver dawn steals over the docks

A truck with no wheels up on the cinderblocks

Men with no dreams around a fire in a drum

Scrap metal schemes rusted over and done

If I'd a bucket of gold, silver would do

I'd leave the story untold Silvertown blues

And I'm going down in Silvertown

Down in Silvertown

Going down in Silvertown

Down in Silvertown

Dm Bb Dm C Bb

When you're standing on thin and dangerous ice

Dm Bb Dm C Bb

You can knock and walk in for citizens' advice

Dm Bb Dm C Bb

They'll tell you where you can turn, where you can go

Dm Bb Dm C Bb

There's nothing they can tell me I don't already know

If I'd a bucket of gold, silver would do

I'd leave the story untold Silvertown blues

And I'm going down in Silvertown

Down in Silvertown

Going down in Silvertown

Down in Silvertown

From the Canning Town train I see a billboard high

There's a big silver plane rising up into the sky

And I can make out the words 'seven flights every day'

Says six of those birds are bound for JFK

If I'd a bucket of gold, silver would do

I'd leave the story untold Silvertown blues

And I'm going down in Silvertown

Down in Silvertown

Going down in Silvertown

Down in Silvertown

that's about it,sorry about the solo,my electric is broken,

I'll try to post it later on.
