Intro: G C G

        G
Oh, the Cap Street Girls
           C                Am
With their pretty curls and bows
        G                     Em     C
And the lonely light in their eyes
      G
How I long to lie
     C                Am
On a Summer's day, in there
       G           D   C      G     C    G
In the arms of the Cap Street Girls


           Am
When I was young, I had thought
             C
They're just pretty painted ladies
G                      F             C
Waving fans from their chaise lounge divans
            Am
Then I grew old and I learned
       C
of the pleasures that were waiting in their
G               F                  C
powdered bosoms bottomless; it was torture for a man
          Cm          D            C   D      G      C   G
should he land in the hands of the Cap Street Girls


        G
Oh, the Cap Street Girls
           C                Am
With their pretty curls and bows
        G                     Em     C
And the lonely light in their eyes
      G
How I long to lie
     C                  Am
On a Summer's night, in there
       G           D   C      G
In the arms of the Cap Street Girls


              Am
Then came the day when they came
   C
To tear down all the buildings
G                  F                C
Making way for the Cap Street for a fair (?)
            Am
And all the girls disappeared
   C
To Woolworth's and to Hennessy's
G                   F                      C
Selling clothes and panty-hoes; how all it all just slipped away!
            Cm            D           C   D      G       C    G
But still I crave for the days of the Cap Street Girls


        G
Oh, the Cap Street Girls
           C                Am
With their pretty curls and bows
        G                     Em     C
And the lonely light in their eyes
      G
How I long to lie
     C                  Am
On a Summer's night, in there
       G           D   C      G
In the arms of the Cap Street Girls
        D   C      G
Oh, the cap street girls
        D   C      G
Oh, the cap street girls
