Buck Owens — It's A Long Way To London Town lyrics

Well, it's a long long way to London
It's a long way to London town
When you've got no way of goin'
But pickin' em up and puttin' em down.

There's a got cold, cold rain a fallin'
I hope to God that I don't drown
But I've got a sweet baby waitin'
And it's a long way to London town.

One day I packed up my belongings
Said I could make myself a name
I knew that somewhere away out yonder
There was awaitin' me fortune and fame.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/buck-owens-its-a-long-way-to-london-town-lyrics.html ]
But now my rainbow's end has vanished
My pot of gold's gone up in smoke
And I'm just tryin' to get back to baby
And Lord, I hope my baby love me broke.

--- Instrumental ---

I nearly froze to deathly
Russia burned up in Thumbatoo
I got drunk down in Australia
Ad nearly made me a king of rue.

But now my big dreams all have failed
M big plan's gone with the wind
And if I ever get back to London town
I'm never gonna leave again.

It's a long long way to London
I's a long way to London town
When you've got no way of goin'
Bt pickin' em up and puttin' em down...
