Intro

G G G

I'm an AmericGan, boys, and I've come a long Cway, GBorn and bred in the DUSA So Emlisten up close, I've got something to say GBoys, I'm buying this Dround GWell it took a little while, but we're in this Cfight GAnd we ain't going home 'til we've Ddone what's right EmWe're gonna drink Camden Town dry tonight, GIf I have to spend my Dlast Gpound When I first got to London it was pourin' down rain Met a little girl in the field canteen Painted her name on the nose of my plane Six more missions, I'm gone Well I asked if I could stay and she said that I might Then the warden came around yelling "Turn out the lights" Death rainin' out of the London night We made love 'til dawn

Chorus

But when CJohnny Come Lately comes Gmarching Dhome With a Gchest full of medals and a DG.I. loan EmThey'll be waitin' at the station down in San Antone GWhen Johnny comes Dmarching Ghome

G C G D Em G C G

My P-47 is a pretty good ship And she took a round comin' cross the channel last trip I was thinkin' 'bout my baby and letting her rip Always got me through so far Well they can ship me all over this great big world But I'll never find nothing like my North End girl I'm taking her home with me one day, sir Soon as we win this war

Chorus

Now my grandaddy sang this song Told me about London when the Blitz was on How he married grandma and brought her back home A hero thoughout his land Now I'm standing on a runway in San Diego A couple Purple Hearts and I move a little slow There's nobody here, maybe nobody knows About a place called Vietnam

Chorus
