Kinky Friedman – London Homesick Blues lyrics
Gary P. Nunn

When you're down on your luck and you ain't got a buck
In London, you're a goner.
Even London Bridge has fallen down
And moved to Arizona. (Now I know why)

Well I'll substantiate the rumor that the English sense of humor
Is drier than the Texas sands.
Well you can put up your dukes or you can bet your boots,
But I'm be just as fast as I can.

I wanna go home with the Armadillos
Good country music from Amarillo and Abilene
The prettiest women and the friendliest people you've ever seen.

Well it's cold over here and I swear
I wish they would turn the heat on
And where in the world is that English girl
I promised I would meet 'em (the third floor)

And of the whole darn lot the only friend I've got
Is a smoke and a cheap guitar (sitar or whatever)
Well my mind keeps longing and my heart keeps hoping
I'd be home in a Texas bar.


Well, I decided that I'd take my cowboy hat
And go down to the Marble Arch Station
'Cause when a Texan fancies that he'll take his chances
Chances will be taken, and that's for sure.

And all those Limey eyes they were eyeing these prizes
Some people call manly footwear
They said you're from down South and when you open your mouth
You always seem to put your foot there.

Chorus. Chorus
