The Byrds – Gunga Din lyrics

Written by Gene Parsons

I'm writing this here letter, from aboard a DC8
Headin' in, to Angel Town, I hope it's not too late, Mmm- hmm
It rained in New York City
Mister Rock 'n' Roll couldn't stay
The crowd was mad, and we were had
Chasing the sun back to L.A., Mmm- hmm

Have breakfast with me momma
I hope they'll let us in
Got a leather jacket on
Know that is a sin
Gunga Din

Sitting backwards on this airplane, is bound to make me sick
Spend your life on a DC8, never get to bed
(Settle down) settle down in the world

Now we're over Kansas, the clouds are floating by
The whole wide world looks back at me
Just like a mushroom pie, wonder why

Have breakfast with me momma
I hope they'll let us in
Got a leather jacket on
Know that is a sin
Gunga Din
