INTRO:
 Dm Am Dm Am Dm Am Dm Am (guitar only)

 Dm Am Dm Am Dm Am Dm Am (add violin)
 Dm Am Bb Dm


VERSE I:
 Dm            Am             Dm              Am 
 Dirty Davey's down the front and he's met the coppers there
 Dm                                         Am           Bb                Dm 
 They'll be taking you in cos they hate your skin, he's dragged away by the hair


CHORUS:
 Dm                      Am
 It's a kick in the head and a prison bed
 Dm                        Am
 And you tell me it's the law


 Dm C Am Bb

 Dm Am Dm Am 


VERSE II:
 Well Davey's out on two weeks bail and he's down the town to score
 When it all falls in and he's pinned by the chin and they've busted every floor


CHORUS

 Dm Am Dm Am 


VERSE III:
 Davey's down the old grey squat and he's lying with his lass
 When there's a brick through the pane and he's out on the lane with the bailiffs and the  glass


CHORUS


 Dm Am Dm Am 


 VERSE IV:
 The court comes up on Monday morning and Davey's in the dock
 He can't stop his tears when he gets two years and you can't turn back the clock


CHORUS


VERSE V:
 Well Davey's had it up to here banging his head on the wall
 So he tied his pants to the prison bars and he's hung till he's clear of it all


CHORUS


 Dm Am Dm Am 


VERSE VI:
 There's a law for the rich and a law for the poor and a law for Dirty Davey 
 His body's gone but his soul lives on here's to you Dirty Davey 


CHORUS


OUTRO:
 Corrupt, corrupt from the bottom to the top 
 And you tell me it's the law 
 Corrupt, corrupt from the bottom to the top 
 And you tell me it's the law 
 Corrupt, corrupt from the bottom to the top 
 And you tell me it's the law
