She left in the middle of the night with the kids
E            A              F#m       B          E A B

Wrapped in a blanket with a packet of crisps
B                           E       A         B E

Heading for her mother's on another estate
E               A         F#m           G#

The kids looked up at the light and the rain
G#                   Dm         G          F

In the middle of the night such adventures made
F              Dm   G          Eb

For two little kids staying up late
Eb               Dm       C#m        F#

It was rainy and windy as winter was bleak
F#  B          E          F#          F#m             B E A

At four in the morning on King George Street . . .


B                         E        A     B             E

She couldn't get to sleep where on Earth had he gone?
E               A            F#m        B     E A

The door opened wide and the light went on

B                 E           A    B            E
He was drunk as a lord with a tyre marked hat
E              A       F#m        G#

Falling in the hall on top of the cat
G#           Dm          G      F

Singing Viva Espana to a crying wife
F                      Dm    G      Eb

He took a swing at the shade on the light
Eb                    Dm        C#m          F#

They were knocking on the doors dressed like refugees
B              E       F#          F#m

In the pouring rain on King George Street . . .

of the door

A           G# (G#sus4)
Down on the corner
    C#          F#    B C#
The kids at his feet 

C# F#    B     C#     F#
As daddy comes home
F# C#   F#     B       C#
On King George Street

As daddy comes home


F#-- (strum occasionally during break)

They stood around the kettle and watched as it brewed

Sneezing into hankies hands all blue


C#                  F#   B      C#            F#

The next evening he came around to the house
F#              B                G#m        Bb

With a bunch of flowers and they locked him out
                      Em             A            G

He peered through the window mouthed words in the air
              Em      A       F

Her lips to a cup she saw him out there
              Em
The kids came running
              D#m      G#

But were they happy to see
G#    C#         F#      B           G# (or C#)

Their daddy back home on King George Street
G#    C#         F#      B           F#m

Their daddy back home on King George Street  . . .
