Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Have you seen the old man in the closed-down market
Kicking up the paper, with his worn out shoes?

Left allemande the corner lady, dosado at home
Allemande left with the corner lady, weave the ring
So how can you tell me you're lonely?
Swing the girl and promenade
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru go 4 hands around,
Dosado with the corner lady
Swing thru, all the boys run, tag the line all the way thru,
Cloverleaf and go, girls square thru 3
Swing your girl and promenade
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain the ring, turn the girls around and go
Roll a half sashay, circle left go round
4 ladies roll away, circle left and go round
Allemande left and weave the ring
So how can you tell me you're lonely?
Swing the girl and promenade
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind

Streets Of London Lyrics ID: 2809

Have you seen the old man in the closed-down market
Kicking up the paper, with his worn-out shoes?
In his eyes you see no pride
Hand held loosely at his side
Yesterday's paper telling yesterday's news

So how can you tell me you're lonely
And say for you that the sun don't shine?
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind

Have you seen the old girl who walks the streets of London
Dirt in her hair and her clothes in rags?
She's no time for talking, she just keeps right on walking
Carrying her home in two carrier bags

So how can you tell me you're lonely
And say for you that the sun don't shine?
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind

In the all-night cafe at a quarter past eleven
Same old man is sitting there on his own
Looking at the world over the rim of his tea-cup
Each tea lasts an hour, then he wanders home alone

So how can you tell me that you're lonely
And say for you that the sun don't shine?
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind

And have you seen the old man outside the seaman's mission?
Memory fading with the medal ribbons that he wears
In our winter city, the rain cries a little pity
For one more forgotten hero and a world that doesn't care

So how can you tell me you're lonely
And you say for you that the sun don't shine?
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind

Lyrics by Ralph McTell.
Recorded by Ralph McTell; many others.
