Cleaning Windows.
Van Morrison.
Album: Beautiful Vision.
Capo 1.
(A lot of the words are
native to the U.K.)
Intro: A  
D
Oh, the smell of the bakery from across the street,
          A
Got in my nose, hey,
         D
Yeah, we carried our ladders down the street,
                           A
With the wrought-iron gate rows,
  D                                                    A
I went home and listened to Jimmie Rodgers in my lunch-break,
A                                        E
Bought five Woodbines at the shop on the corner,
                          A
And went straight back to work.

D
Oh, Sam was up on top,
                                A
And I was on the bottom with the V,
D
We went for lemonade and Paris buns,
D                         A
At the shop and broke for tea, that's right,
D
I collected from the lady,
                                  A
And I cleaned the fanlight inside-out,
      E
I was blowing saxophone on the weekend,
             A    F#m  A 
In that down joint.

A     F#m E                        D
What's my line? I'm happy cleaning windows,
A   F#m  E                               D 
Take my time, I'll see you when my love grows,
A           F#m    E                              D
Baby, don't let it slide, I'm a working man in my prime,
         A                                        D A 
Cleaning windows (number a hundred and thirty-six).

A                 D
Yeah, dig this, I heard Leadbelly and Blind Lemon,
                          A
On the street where I was born,
D
Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee,
                                    A
Muddy Waters singing "I'm A Rolling Stone",
D                                                    A
I went home and read my Christmas Humphreys' book on Zen,
E
Curiosity killed the cat,
                                    A
Kerouac's "Dharma Bums" and "On The Road".

A     F#m E                        D
What's my line? I'm happy cleaning windows,
A   F#m E                               D
Take my time, I'll see you when my love grows,
A                  F#m          E                 D
Baby, don't let it slide, I'm a working man in my prime,
         A
Cleaning windows,
A                F#m E                        D
Say again, what's my line, I'm happy cleaning windows,
A          F#m E                               D
Well I take my time, I'll see you when my love grows,
A     F#m    E                             D
Don't let it slide, I'm a working man in my prime,
         A                 D
Cleaning windows, oh yeah, cleaning,
                                         A
What you say number, hundred  and twenty six,
A                               D  A
Alright, It'll be ready tomorrow.
