Pogues lyrics : "Oretown"

The night stank of diesel
And a stranger came to town
A cold wind blowing

And the rain pouring down
Street lights flicker
And the power lines moan

The moon beat down
On a river of bone
Someone put the lights out

No one make a sound
You won't find a thing
Down in oretown


Foundry spits fire and smoke
Air's foul and choking

Sky full of sulphur
Mountains flat and broken
Black fogs and whirlwinds

Thunder and rain
Open drink madness
And purple mad pain

The circus is over
Exit the clowns
Nobody's laughing

Down in oretown

The ship's in the harbour

Cargo's been pawned
Barrooms spilling sailors
All shipwrecked at dawn

Smelling of salt and rust
Uniforms torn
Came looking for flowers

Only found thorns
Dreaming of mermaids
In pearly white gowns

Tain is sleeping
Down in oretown


There's a madman down on mainstreet
Eyes all aflame
Laughing in the thunder

Of the number 9 train
Selling old postcards in rusty frames
A thousand views of oretown

And they all look the same
Dressed up in sandals
And a barbed wire crown

A lot of people loose their minds
Down in oretown


Lock up the lawman
Let go the thief
Rounding up the grey men

Nail them to a tree
This town was a palace
This town was aglow

Then the sky burned orange
And the iron river flowed
The night stank of diesel

A stranger came to town
The night folded over
Down in oretown
