Richard Shindell     Sparrows Point  written by Richard Shindell

C#m   E    B   C#m

C#m     E           B     C#m
My name is William  Taylor
C#m   E              B         C#m     E              B   C#m
I was born in twenty four Too  late to know the great fallen
C#m    E                      B
But in time to know the great fall
B        A       E        B   C#m
When my  father  died of  money
C#m  A       E           B
My   mother  lived in spite
B   A            E           B   C#m
We  laughed when nothing was funny
C#m                  E             B
But how we wept when nothing was left
B     C#m      E         B          C#m
So I  left her there in  boom town
C#m    E                   B
When I reached fifteen years
B     C#m       E      B     C#m
And I travelled mostly northeast
C#m     E                B
With my head held mostly down
B           A               E        B         C#m
Cause they  said there was  more in  Baltimore
C#m          A         E        B
Where those  shipyards never close
B       A        E         B   C#m
You can sell the man your  labor
C#m       E     B    C#m      E         B     C#m
Send the  money home Broadway found me  pennyless
C#m     E                B  
And the mission found me last
B    C#m       E         B          C#m
They gave me a coat and  three days rest
C#m      E           B      A         E     B         C#m
And when I awoke and left a shroud of steam surrounded me
C#m  A      E      B
And  I was  born away
  A        E      B         C#m
I found myself at Sparrows Point
C#m               E     B
With a sling-shot in my hand
B    C#m      E      B     C#m    E             B 
And  standing there around me Two thousand idle hands
B          C#m         E
With their heads bowed low
      B         C#m
Their hopes not high
C#m   E                      B
Their hearts weaned of their homes
B          A        E        B      C#m
And their  pockets  full of  photographs
C#m        A         E         B
And their  eyes full of goodbyes
B      A   E      B        C#m
I took my  place among my kind
C#m           E        B
And I held my place in line
B        C#m    E       B       C#m
Now I'm  twenty one and well employed
C#m   E                 B
And I send home most my pay
B             C#m    E        B     C#m
Which leaves  plenty left for cigarettes
C#m E                    B
To  help me pass the days
B      A      E      B          C#m
With beloved friends surrounding me
C#m      A          E     B
The cold street so  far away
A           E        B   C#m
Three days  west of  Normandy
C#m          E     B
With a rifle in my hand
