Thea Gilmore-Sandy Denny   London 2012    
song used by the BBC as part of the Olympic 2012 coverage, 


    [Intro]
G     G     G    G

    [Verse 1]
C           D        G       C         D     G
I am gonna call that number, I don't really mean
C             D        Em                        D
To wake you from your slumber, While England is asleep.
C         D              G          C        D          G
The hotel is just like yesterdays, and the city has no name.
C          D               Em                D
It just stands there in a grey haze, And my room is the same.


    [Chorus]
G               C          Em   G   Em      D         C
Well , Im gonna call that number, So far across the sea,
    D            G               C    G     D    C      D           G
I wish I was in London, Thats where i wanna be,Thats where i wanna be

    [Verse 2]
C                   G        C        D      G
I love it when you miss me, And I'm unhappy too.
                     C              D               C
Oh please don't you forget me, I am so in love with you.
G                  C           D               Em
Yeah, it won't be long now, And even though I know
                   C                 D           C
I seem to leave my heart behind me, Every time I go.


    [CHORUS]
G               C          Em   G   Em      D         C
Well , Im gonna call that number, So far across the sea,
    D            G               C    G     D        C      D        G
I wish I was in London, Thats where i wanna be(RPT)Thats where i wanna be


    [Middle Eight]
Em                                  C                   G
Well, I feel so tired and lonely, I'm thinking of you lover,
                 D      C     G           Am                    
I wish you could console me, May be when it's over ...

    [Verse 3]
C            D        G        C        D           G
I am gonna call that number, Though I don't really mean
C         D             Em                       D 
To wake you from your slumber, While England is asleep.
C        D                   G          C         D          G
And the hotel is just like yesterday's, And the city has no name,

It just stands there in a grey haze, And my room is, my room is the same.

Well , Im gonna call that number, So far across the sea,
    D            G               C    G     D         C      D        G
I wish I was in London,Thats where i wanna be(RPT)Thats where i wanna be

    [Fade Out]
