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

Repeat #3

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

Repeat #3

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

Repeat #3

C D7 G
Yes I'd fly to my own true love again
