The Bastard Landlord The Pogues Lyrics And Chords, written by Jim Finer [The Banjo Player]
 
 

Oh[A] Lord wont you tell me I'm sure I dont[D] know
Who makes the plans that[A] change our lives[E] so
From a[A] place in the country so peaceful and[D] calm
We moved up to London when the[A] bombs fell around
To[E] a street by the river where the[D] rent it was cheap
The landlord he told us it's[A] yours to[E] keep
For a[A] regular payment week after[D] week
You'll[D] always have a roof under[A] which you can sleep
[2]
The years passed by the war came to an end
We lived out our lives did nothing to offend
But the landlord's conditions yearly they grew
With the size of his gut and his houseing values
He'd kneel on a Sunday and pray to the Lord
For the deals of love his his world cannot afford
When the bastard he came rount to put up the rent
We swallowed our pride and we smiled our best
[Chorus]
[D]Bricks and morter a[G] kingdom of stone
[A]Where do you go when you're[D] all alone
They'll[G] carve your name[A] where you lie
And I for one no[G] tears will cry
[3]
Greed knows no boundaries,greed doesn't feel
I'm dammed if I'll die for a profiting deal
The woman next door she just passed away
'Cause the rent got so high she just couldn't pay
And there in her bed she closed up her eyes
The last time they gazed on this world of lies
With nowhere to go and nothing to say
She went to the next world and the bastard he smiled
[Repeat chorus]
[4]
Oh Lord wont you tell me I'm sure I dont know
What makes some people so callous and cold
I've lived in this house for fourty four years
My children were born here its where I'll grow old
A curse on you bastard landlord be dammed
Who needs one more house like the beach needs more sand
I'll stay till I'm done only nobody knows
How God can let one man treat others so
