***Johnny Come Lately - by Steve Earle & The Pogues
from Steve Earle's Copperhead Road Album

Johnny Come Lately - as performed by Steve Earle & The Pogues


Intro - G G G (strum each once)

             G                              C
I'm an American, boys, and I've come a long way,
G                    D
Born and bred in the USA
   Em
So listen up close, I've got something to say
G                     D
Boys, I'm buying this round

G                                              C
Well it took a little while, but we're in this fight
G                                  D
And we ain't going home 'til we've done what's right
Em
We're gonna drink Camden Town dry tonight,
G                     D    G
If I have to spend my last pound

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:
         C                        G        D
But when Johnny Come Lately comes marching home
       G                          D
With a chest full of medals and a G.I. loan
Em
They'll be waitin' at the station down in San Antone
G                 D        G
When Johnny comes marching home
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
