London Homesick Blues

Song Author Gary P. Nunn Submitted by: Anonymous

[G] Well, when you're down on your luck,

and you ain't got a buck,
in[D] London you're a goner.

Even London Bridge has fallen down,
and[G] moved to Arizona,
now I know[C] why.

And I'll substantiate the rumor that the English sense of humor
is[G] drier than than the Texas sand.
You can [Em]put up your dukes, and you can [Em7]bet your boots
that I'm[D] leavin' just as fast as I can.

[G]I wanna go[C] home with the[G] arma[Am]dillo
Good country[C] music from Ama[D]rillo and Abi[G]lene
T[C]he friendliest people and[D] the prettiest women you've ever

seen.

W[G]ell, it's cold over here, and I swear
I[D] wish they'd turn the heat on.

And where in the world is that English girl
I[G] promised I would meet on the third[C] floor.

And of the whole damn lot, the only friend I've got
is a[G] smoke and a cheap guitar.
My [Em]mind keeps roamin', my [Em7]heart keeps longin'
to be[D] home in a Texas bar.

[G]I wanna go[C] home with the[G] arma[Am]dillo
Good country[C] music from Ama[D]rillo and Abi[G]lene
T[C]he friendliest people and[D] the prettiest women you've ever

seen.

[G] Well, I decided that I'd get my cowboy hat
and go[D] down to Marble Art Station.

'Cause when a Texan fancies, he'll take his chances.
[G]Chances will be taken, that's for[C] sure.

And them Limey eyes, they were eyein' the prize
that some[G] people call manly footwear.
And they [Em]said you're from down South,
and when you [Em7]open your mouth,
you[D] always seem to put your foot there.


[G]I wanna go[C] home with the[G] arma[Am]dillo
Good country[C] music from Ama[D]rillo and Abi[G]lene
T[C]he friendliest people and[D] the prettiest women you've ever

seen.


Well, when you're down on your luck,

and you ain't got a buck,
in London you're a goner.

Even London Bridge has fallen down,

now I know why.

And I'll substantiate the rumor that the English sense of humor
is drier than than the Texas sand.
You can put up your dukes, and you can bet your boots
that I'm leavin' just as fast as I can.

I wanna go home with the armadillo
Good country music from Amarillo and Abilene
The friendliest people and the prettiest women you've ever

seen.

Well, it's cold over here, and I swear
I wish they'd turn the heat on.

And where in the world is that English girl
I promised I would meet on the third floor.

And of the whole damn lot, the only friend I've got

My mind keeps roamin', my heart keeps longin'

'Cause when a Texan fancies, he'll take his chances.
Chances will be taken, that's for sure.

And them Limey eyes, they were eyein' the prize
that some people call manly footwear.
And they said you're from down South,
and when you open your mouth,
you always seem to put your foot there.

I wanna go home with the armadillo
Good country music from Amarillo and Abilene
The friendliest people and the prettiest women you've ever

seen.
