Leaving London Recorded by Doc Watson Written by Tom Paxton
G Em There’s a dark and rolling sea G Em Between my love and me G D7 G As I walk through this cold lonesome town
Em As I wish for a better day G Em I need a place to stay G D7 G If it’s just a floor to spread my blanket down
C G And if I could beg steal or borrow Em C G D7 A ticket on some old ship or plane C G I'd leave old London tomorrow C D7 G And I’d fly to my own true love again
Em I’ll put on a change of shirt G Em And just to wash away the dirt G D7 G Then it's over to American Express
Em And not a letter do I find G Em She didn't even send a line G D7 G And I know she had my forwarding address
Em Last night the Troubadour G Em Was so full they barred the door G D7 G And I sang a song that she loved so well
Em And it wouldn't take me long G Em To make up another song G D7 G About a sad and a lonesome farewell
Em At my room I close the door G Em Spread my blanket on the floor G D7 G Feeling like a man in a cell
Em Sleep finally comes to me G Em And I drift across the sea G D7 G To the waiting arms of the girl I love so well
C D7 G Yes I'd fly to my own true love again
