Two recorded versions, one by Gavin and Peter as Tonight at Noon on ?"Down to the Devils" or similar name CD, the second by Mick West Band on his first album ?"Fine Flowers and Frolics". Will check correct titles and post with lyrics.
love john.

THE MISSION HALL

Ch. And when your walking the London river
When you're strolling down the Mall
Nightshift ends in a Soho bar room
Think on back to the Mission Hall.

Winters creepin'across the sea now
Rain it's freezing on the wall
Doos and sparrows by the chimney
On the roof of the Mission Hall
Oh summer days and smiling faces
Waiting for the night to fall
Making eyes and saving wages
For the dance at the Mission Hall

Ah when I saw her, well I could have hugged her
Eyes so young wi' a kindly brow
Breaking hearts with foolish glances
Breaking lives with foolish vows
Well they say that the sweetest kisses
Surely hide the darkest souls
And for all that her lovin' was tender
Her heart was black as the winter coal

Well she saved the fare for the train to Euston
Bought a round and shot the craw
Blew a kiss and blessed the baby
Broke my heart to see her go
Well Fortune cheats when Fortune gambles
Makes you walk when you can't crawl
Fortune pulled a blindewr on me
By the shade of the Mission Hall.

Peter Livingstone.

Having real difficulty tracking down the chords for this song. I would really appreciate it if you could jot them down.

There's a lovely version of this on the album "Glad Company" by the Anna Massie Band. If you're not familiar with Anna, she's an awesome Scottish flat picker

Anna Massie: bit more than a flatpicker. Very talented multi-instrumentalist - guitar, banjo, mandolin and fiddle. Plays with "Blazin' Fiddles". Brilliant actress too, as seen at the annual "Blazin' in Beauly" course week during the band's cabaret stage night!

And yes, love "The Mission Hall" song. You could do it with just 3 chords, but more interesting with a couple of minors thrown in. e.g G, C, D + Am, Em.
