Just Another Town song lyrics and guitar chords. Written and recorded by Johnny Duhan and taken from the album ''Just Another Town.

(C) And in the band-room up (F) on the (G) hill
(C) A brass band's playing, I can (F) hear it (G) still –
The (Em) slide (Am) trombone is (F) softly (G) blown.

The old nurse is on her way to the shops.
The epileptic suddenly drops.
Down the hill my father's in the docks.
In the bar the drinking never stops.

Bobby throws down a pair of queens.
The church bell interrupts someone's dreams.
Someone's talking of football teams.
Some girl is straightening her nylon seams.

And the street is drifting into evening
While the sun is going down.
I'm just back there capturing the feeling
Though it's just another town,
Just another town.

Sorry. I didn't have time to listen and took the site at face value. I will get back to it a bit later and do my best. Looks like what I posted is about 35% of the lyrics.

(...)
(...)
Two drunks (fighting down in the lane)
And little children are playing again

Dogs are barking and little girl (sing)
(...)
(...)
On the pavements many starts to run

Chorus:
And the street is drifting into evening
While the sun is going down.
I'm just back there capturing the feeling
Though it's just another town,
Just another town.

The cripple crawls up the avenue
Someone else says, "How do you do?"
Someone kicks a ball over to you
While the sky begins to lose its hue

A group of (stevedore) from the ships
(...)
One takes a cigarette from his lips
Someone else (...)

And the street is drifting into evening
While the sun is going down.
I'm just back there capturing the feeling
Though it's just another town,
Just another town.

And in the band-room up on the hill
A brass band's playing, I can hear it still –
The slide trombone is softly blown.

The old nurse is on her way to the shops.
The epileptic suddenly drops.
Down the hill my father's in the docks.
In the bar the drinking never stops.

Bobby throws down a pair of queens.
The church bell interrupts someone's dreams.
Someone's talking of football teams.
Some girl is straightening her nylon seams.

And the street is drifting into evening
While the sun is going down.
I'm just back there capturing the feeling
Though it's just another town,
Just another town.

Just Another Town
Johnny Dunhan

The old spinster is going insane
Her next door neighbour is in church again
Two drunks are fighting down in the lane
While little children are playing a game

Dogs are barking, little girl sing,
And the chapel bell begins to ring
Someone deals Bobby a King;
On the pavement many starts to run

Chorus:
And the street is drifting into evening
While the sun is going down.
I'm just back there capturing the feeling
Though it's just another town,
Just another town.

The cripple crawls up the avenue
Someone else says, "How do you do?"
Someone kicks a ball over to you
While the sky begins to lose its hue

A group of old stevedores from the ships
Come up the street bent from the hips;
One takes a cigarette from his lips
Someone else drops the coin he flips.

And the street is drifting into evening
While the sun is going down.
I'm just back there capturing the feeling
Though it's just another town,
Just another town.

And in the band-room up on the hill
A brass band's playing, I can hear it still –
The slide trombone is softly blown.

The old nurse is on her way to the shops.
The epileptic suddenly drops.
Down the hill my father's in the docks.
In the bar the drinking never stops.

Bobby throws down a pair of queens.
The church bell interrupts someone's dreams.
Someone's talking of football teams.
Some girl is straightening her nylon seams.

And the street is drifting into evening
While the sun is going down.
I'm just back there capturing the feeling
Though it's just another town,
Just another town.

Verse two has a couple of errors:

  Dogs are barking and little girls sing,
  And the chapel bell begins to ring
  Someone deals Bobby a King;
  On the pavement money starts to run

(In the recording he also starts several lines with Oh and has capturing that feeling in the middle chorus.)

Actually, I hear:

"On the pavement money starts to ring."

I know it's unusual for a songwriter to rhyme a word with itself, and it's a little unsatisfactory on that account, but I think he's trying to depict the ringing sound of a coin hitting the pavement.

You're right Jim - I've just had another listen and I think it is ring.
