D                           G
Teary eyes at the window,  Where did Mum and Dad go?
        D                                                   Em7
I wish someone would hurry up and come and get me, Gee I'm scared
 D                                 A7         D   
The cat shot through, She saw the light and fled.
 
D                                   G                   D
Cracker night was a real big deal, when I was a little kid
                                           Em7            A7
They started lettin' them off after tea I ran inside and hid
D                                         A7         D
And all the dogs from everywhere were underneath me bed. 

D                                         G             D
We all went down in our dressing gowns to see the big bonfire
                                         Em7 A7
Wide eyes watched the straw man burn on a milehigh pile of tyres
D                                         A7      D
Hot as hell, big black smell and red hot rings of wire. 


A7                             D
Sky rockets zinging,          Catherine wheels spinning,
A7                                D
What a flamin' evening,          Fire trucks were screaming
 A7                                                
Smoky haze hangin' round for days
                            D
And Grandma's ears were ringing. 

D                        G                 D
Everynight after school draggin' bits of wood, Boxes and branches 
D                        Em7                A7
and rotten old fences,  And mattresses were good.
D                                      A7         D
We even scrounged a vinyl lounge  And anything we could 

D                                      G                D
Little Guy Fawkes's and letter boxes  Blown all out of shape
                                      Em7              A7
Light the wick and back off quick,    And make the big escape
D                                      A7                     D
Cackin ourselves and rippin' my shirt Scrambling through the gate 

A7                            D
Sky rockets zinging,          Catherine wheels spinning,
A7                                D
What a flamin' evening,          Fire trucks were screaming
 A7                                                 
Smoky haze hangin' round for days
                         D
And Grandma's ears were ringing. 


D                                       G                   D
A house burnt down on the edge of town  We all took off with Pa
                                       Em7              A7
This thing whizzed across the road And nearly hit our car
D                                     A7             D
A bang and spark lit up the park And everyone went Ah! Ah! Ah! 


D                                   G                   D
Cracker night was a real big deal, When I was a little kid,
                             Em7             A7
It seems like only yesterday Tucked away in bed
D                                    A7              D
Dreams of schemes and double bunger Daring things we did.
