The young lady* in the video is playing in A with capo on 3 using A D&E7

(*Her Dad wrote the song)

to play along without a capo use C F & G7  to play along using the chords that I have written put your capo on 5

 

  

All along the Rossendale

 

1.   [G]The cotton mills are [C]closing down all [D7]over Lanca[G]shire

From Burnley to the [C]Mersey from [D7]Oldham to the [G]Wyre

And all along the [C]Rossendale you can [D7]hear the weavers [G]cry

As the wind across the [C]Pennines heaves a [D7]low and deathly [G]sigh

 

2.   Save our sheds from unem[C]ployment that's [D7]all that we de[G]mand

We're clemmin' and we're [C]starving with no [D7]money in our [G]hands

Redeployment is the [C]answer from [D7]Whitehall's empty [G]mouth

Bring your friends and [C]family there's a [D7]job for you down [G]south

 

3.   And meanwhile for the last time the factory whistle blows

The profit margin's falling and capital's run low

And the stockbrokers of Altrincham are selling all their shares

Don't give a damn for the working man, no one really cares

 

4.   As the sun sets over Pendle and the rain begins to fall

The Government at Westminster ignores the weavers call

And the glory that was England dies beneath those coal black hills

The legend of Jerusalem and those dark satanic mills

 

Some people treat the first verse as a chorus
