Owens, Buck - 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.

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.


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'
But pickin' em up and puttin' em down...

    Werewolf Fam Guy

    War is easily worse than hell. According to religious folks, only sinners go to hell. War is full of the innocent dead, regardless of race, colour or creed.

  54. Phil Harris

    My grandfather is 86 lying in a hospital bed with dementia. He has no idea what he is doing or who anyone is and it is very distressing for him. However, I played this to him and his whole demeanour instantly changed and he happily sang along. Incredible how music can effect us like that. Thanks

  55. et lux in tenebris lucet

    My school said I'm not able to wear an beanie with an Australian flag on armistice day and when I said it was to comemerate my great grandfather because he had lost his life in world war one the school made me go to detention and yes my school doesn't let out on veterans day

    wavylikeswavy and you have a fortnite profile picture

  64. The Raging Kommandant

    I find WW1 a lot more tragic than WW2 with the conditions that solders had to live with. WW2 was the people's war where no one was safe, WW1 though was a war that caused so much death and destroyed the romantic notion of 1800 war. If you were to be sent off to war you were very likely going to never come back. Having that constant chance of death, either a shell landing on you or getting shot without even knowing where it came from. Sitting in a shell hole after a failed attack and having to deal with the rats, mud and whatever wounds you acquired from the attack. Having to see your comrades blown to bits or getting shot and screaming for help is just something that I don't think most people could handle today. "The War to end all war" as it's known even though it ended nothing. The Great War is a brilliant way of describing it as there is no other war I can think of that could fit that description. Of course more people died in WW2 but the conditions for solders during WW1 are abysmal compared to even some of the most gruesome battles of WW2. It is sad how little people truly know of WW1 compared to WW2, I bet most people couldn't even tell you how it started. May the souls of the people who's lives were cut short rest, they shall not grow old.

  87. Dalek Emperor

    Lest we forget...

  88. RatMouse55

    It's so weird how the attitude of the war was so cheery in the beginning. All the soldiers had no idea what was to come. They all had that "War is a grand adventure" mentality. World War One: The War To End All Wars. Ironic how it only started another, more greater war.

    11/11/1918. We Will Remember Them.

    Enigma Prime

    Honestly it was to be expected. If you treat a defeated country poorly like they did with Versailles Treaty, then no doubt that country is going to snap and start a war to end that oppression.

  89. Jarod Farrant

    To all the soldiers and civilians on all sides of the Great War I let’s remember them🇨🇦🇫🇷🇺🇸🇬🇧 🇩🇪 🇷🇺 🇮🇹 🇷🇴

  90. The Kush Puppie

    I can’t believe I’m saying this but the lack of poppies on lapels this year was shocking. Wear a poppy always and never forgot. Not just WW1 and WW2 but every serving man and women who has given there lives to this country and everything we stand for

  91. Megan Nguyen

    I even know how to hold the last note

  92. Megan Nguyen

  95. Jon Don

    Who's watching this on armistice day?

  96. Claire Vere Nicoll

    Thank you to those brave brave men and women who laid down their lives for us and our future, and we musn't forget the horrors of both World Wars then, now and for ever... We have a human duty and responsibility to remember...and to remind our children and our grandchildren and theirs after..
