Durham Town

Song Author Roger Whittaker Lyrics by: Roger Whittaker Performer: Roger Whittaker Submitted by: MagS
[D]I've got to [A]leave old [G]Durham [A]town,
[D]I've got to [G]leave old [A]Durham [D]town.
I've got to [F#]leave old [Bm]Durham [G]town,
And that [D]leaving's gonna [A]get me [D]down.

[D]Back in nineteen [G]forty-[A]four,
[Bm]I remember [F#]Daddy walking [Bm]out the [F#]door.
[D]Mama told [A]me he was [G]going to [D]war,
he was [Bm]leaving, [F#]leaving,
leaving, leaving, leaving [F#7]me.    

[D]I've got to [A]leave old [G]Durham [A]town,
[D]I've got to [G]leave old [A]Durham [D]town.
I've got to [F#]leave old [Bm]Durham [G]town,
And that [D]leaving's gonna [A]get me [D]down.

When [D]I was a [A]boy, I [G]spent my [A]time,
[Bm]Sitting on the [F#]banks of the [Bm]river [F#]Tyne.
[D]Watching all the [A]ships going [G]down the [A]line,
they were [Bm]leaving, [F#]leaving,
leaving, leaving, leaving [F#7]me.    

[D]I've got to [A]leave old [G]Durham [A]town,
[D]I've got to [G]leave old [A]Durham [D]town.
I've got to [F#]leave old [Bm]Durham [G]town,
And that [D]leaving's gonna [A]get me [D]down.

[D]Last week my [A]Mama [G]passed a[A]way,
[Bm]"Goodbye, [F#]son" was [Bm]all she'd [F#]say.   
[D]There's no [A]cause for [G]me to [A]stay,
so I'm [Bm]leaving, [F#]leaving,
leaving, leaving, leaving [F#7]free.    

[D]I've got to [A]leave old [G]Durham [A]town,
[D]I've got to [G]leave old [A]Durham [D]town.
I've got to [F#]leave old [Bm]Durham [G]town,
And that [D]leaving's gonna [A]get me [D]down.

[D]I've got to [A]leave old [G]Durham [A]town,
[D]I've got to [G]leave old [A]Durham [D]town.
I've got to [F#]leave old [Bm]Durham [G]town,
And that [D]leaving's gonna [A]get me [D]down.

I've got to leave old Durham town,
I've got to leave old Durham town.
I've got to leave old Durham town,
And that leaving's gonna get me down.

Back in nineteen forty-four,
I remember Daddy walking out the door.
Mama told me he was going to war,
he was leaving, leaving,
leaving, leaving, leaving me.

I've got to leave old Durham town,
I've got to leave old Durham town.
I've got to leave old Durham town,
And that leaving's gonna get me down.

When I was a boy, I spent my time,
Sitting on the banks of the river Tyne.
Watching all the ships going down the line,
they were leaving, leaving,
leaving, leaving, leaving me.

I've got to leave old Durham town,
I've got to leave old Durham town.
I've got to leave old Durham town,
And that leaving's gonna get me down.

Last week my Mama passed away,
"Goodbye, son" was all she'd say.
There's no cause for me to stay,
so I'm leaving, leaving,
leaving, leaving, leaving free.

I've got to leave old Durham town,
I've got to leave old Durham town.
I've got to leave old Durham town,
And that leaving's gonna get me down.

I've got to leave old Durham town,
I've got to leave old Durham town.
I've got to leave old Durham town,
And that leaving's gonna get me down.
