Leaving London


G Em G Em G D6/F# G G Em With a dark and rolling sea G Em Between my love and me, G D7/F# G I keep walking through this cold hard town. G Em While I wait for better days, G Em I could use a place to stay, G D7/F# G Or a floor where I could lay my blanket down. C G If I could beg, steal or borrow C G D/F# A ticket on some ship or plane, Em (C) G I'd be leaving London tomorrow, C D/F# G To fly to my own love again.

Up at dawn to change my shirt
And to wash away the dirt,
Then it's over to American Express.
Not one letter did I find,
No, she didn't send one line,
Though I know she had my forwarding address.

If I could beg, steal or borrow
A ticket on some ship or plane,
I'd be leaving London tomorrow,
To fly to my own love again.

Last night the Troubadour,
Was so full they barred the door,
And I sang a song she knows quite well.
But it wouldn't take too long,
To make up another song,
For a lonesome and a last farewell.

If I could beg, steal or borrow
A ticket on some ship or plane,
I'd be leaving London tomorrow,
To fly to my own love again.

At my room I closed the door,
Spread my blanket on the floor,
Feeling like a prisoner in a cell.
Sleep finally comes to me,
And I'll drift across the sea,
To the waiting arms of the girl I love so well.

If I could beg, steal or borrow
A ticket on some ship or plane,
I'd be leaving London tomorrow,
To fly to my own love again.

(Words and music by Tom Paxton, 1966)
