On Silvertown way the cranes stand high
Quiet and gray against the still of the sky
They won't quit and lay down though the action has died
They watch the new game in town on the Blackwall side

A new circle of cranes, a new reason to be here
A big silver dome rising up into the dawn
Above the church and the homes where all the silver is gone

Gm                 Dm                 C
If I'd a bucket of gold, what would I do
Am                  Bb                Dm
I'd leave the story untold Silvertown blues

F                   Bb
Going down in Silvertown
Gm               F
Down in Silvertown
      Bb            C
Going down in Silvertown
Gm            F
Down in Silvertown

A silver dawn steals over the docks
A truck with no wheels up on the cinderblocks
Men with no dreams around a fire in a drum
Scr*p metal schemes rusted over and done

If I'd a bucket of gold, silver would do
I'd leave the story untold Silvertown blues
And I'm going down in Silvertown
Down in Silvertown
Going down in Silvertown
Down in Silvertown

Dm                      Bb                 Dm     C Bb
When you're standing on thin and dangerous ice
Dm                     Bb               Dm        C Bb
You can knock and walk in for citizens' advice
Dm                             Bb                  Dm   C Bb
They'll tell you where you can turn, where you can go
Dm                       Bb                     Dm      C Bb
There's nothing they can tell me I don't already know

If I'd a bucket of gold, silver would do
I'd leave the story untold Silvertown blues
And I'm going down in Silvertown
Down in Silvertown
Going down in Silvertown
Down in Silvertown

There's a big silver plane rising up into the sky
And I can make out the words 'seven flights every day'
Says six of those birds are bound for JFK

If I'd a bucket of gold, silver would do
I'd leave the story untold Silvertown blues
And I'm going down in Silvertown
Down in Silvertown
Going down in Silvertown
Down in Silvertown

that's about it,sorry about the solo,my electric is broken,
I'll try to post it later on.
