Up The Junction (Squeeze)
-------------------------

Verse 1
-------
E                        A
I never thought it would happen
                          E
With me and the girl from Clapham
                 C#m
Out on the windy common
                   E
That night I ain't forgotten
                        A
Where she dealt out the rations
                   E
With some or other passions
                 C#m
I said you are a lady
                 E
Perhaps she said I may be


Verse 2 (chords are the same as verse 1)
-------
We moved into a basement
With talks of our engagement
We stayed in by the telly
Although the room was smelly
We spent our time just kissin'
The Railway Arms we're missin'
But love had got us hooked up
And all the time it took off


Verse 3 (chords are the same as verse 1)
-------
I got a job with Stanley
He said I'd come in handy
And he started me on Monday
So I had a bath on Sunday
I worked eleven hours
And bought the girl some flowers
She said she'd seen a doctor
And nothing now could stop her

Bridge
------
C#m                      G#m
I worked all through the winter
                      F#m
The weather brass and bitter
             B
I put away a tenner
                      D
Each week to make her better
                      Am
And when the time was ready
                   Gm
We had to sell the telly
                     F
Late evenings by the fire
                 A
And little kicks inside her


Verse 4
-------
D                    G
This morning at four fifty
                  D
I took her rather nifty
               Bm
Down to an incubator
                     D
Where thirty minutes later
                    G
She gave birth to a daughter
                D
Within a year a walker
                         Bm
She looked just like her mother
                  D       D A E
If there could be another


Verse 5 (chords are the same as verse 1)
-------
And now she's two years older
Her mother's with a soldier
She left me with my drinkin'
Became a proper stingin'
The devil came and took me
No more nights by the telly
No more nights nappies smelling


Verse 6 (chords are the same as verse 1)
-------
Alone here in the kitchen
I feel there's somethin' missin'
I beg for some forgiveness
But beggin's not my business
And she won't write a letter
Although I always tell her
And so it's my assumption
I'm really up the junction

Worked out by (i.e. not necessarily 100% correct but as near as I can get it)
