Spirit Of The West – Home For A Rest lyrics
Chorus:
You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
I've been gone for a month
I've been drunk since I left
There so-called vacations
Will soon be my death
I'm so sick from teh drink
I need home for a rest
We arrived in december and london was cold
So we stayed in thebars
Along charing cross road
We never saw nothin' but brass taps and oak
Kept a shine on the bar
With the sleeves of our coats
-chorus-
Euston station the train journey north
In the buffet car we lurched back and forth
Past odd crooked dykes
Through yorkshire's green fields
We were flung into dance
As the train jigged and reeled
You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
I've been gone for a month
I've been drunk since I left
There so-called vacations
Will soon be my death
I'm so sick from teh drink
I need home for a rest
Take me home....
By the light of the moon she'd drift through the streets
A rare old perfume so seductive and sweet
She'd tease us and flirt as the pubs all closed down
Then walk us on home and deny us a round
-chorus-
The gas heater's empty, it's damp as a tomb
And the spirits we drank are not ghosts in the room
I'm knackered again, come on sleep take me soon
And don't lift up my head
'till the the twelve bells at noon
You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
I've been gone for a month
I've been drunk since I left
There so-called vacations
Will soon be my death
I'm so sick from teh drink
I need home for a rest
Take me home....
