Em                                    
they married, a dandy and a back alley tough 
       Am
on the foreshore while kids in the needling rough
     Am
stayed low, in, and laid til they'd had enough
       Em
in the somersaulting hot roll of revolting september

    Em
but thickets beneath the hot halo above
Am
The plague bodies bathed in their talentless love
     Am
it's hot in the town with his back to the sea
Em
O darling don't put your veil over me.

|Em   |Em  Am  |Em  Am | Em     |

Em
From thinking your life was about them, when long
Am
they were the thorns in his side
    Am
the hard men got plucked and by measures were gone
   Em
at pride it plucked and out, out it pried.

Em                                  Am
where's the shame in a gentle man?  Stand him next to me?
Am
it's hot in the town with its back to the sea
Em
O darling don't put your veil over me.

|Em   |Em  Am  |Em  Am | Em     |

Em                                         Am
honey we'll go without, honey grow old and thin
  Em              Am          Em
i love you like i love my own skin

Em
from thinking a life was about them but stranger
    Am
the soft women lowed, came in and were in,
   Am
to swoon, 'O welcome hot united sailor'
Em
welcome from unsteady decks and from danger

        Em
did you see a new sun in the sky?
    Am 
the sun is blood and blood is a lie 
     Am
it's hot in the town with its back to the sea
Em
O darling don't put your veil over me...

Em
did you see a new sun in the sky?
    Am
the sun is blood and blood is a lie
     Am
it's hot in the town with it's back to the sea
Em
darling don't put your veil over me

Em                                         Am
honey we'll go without, honey grow old and thin
Em                Am          Em
i love you like i love my own skin
   Em                                                 Am
my bonnie lies over the ocean, my bonnie grows old and thin
  Em              Am          Em
i love her like i love my own skin
  Em              Am          Em
i love her like i love my own skin.
