This Intro is played once then along with the chorus

               Am        G           C                F
        You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
                  C          G
        I've been gone for a month
                                C
        I've been drunk since I left
              Am          G
        These so called vacations
             C          F
        Will soon be my death
               C             G
        I'm so sick from the drink
                          C
        I need home for a rest ...


  Then it breaks into a verse with fast paced chords:

           Am           G         C         F
        We arrived in December and London was cold
              C             G
        So we stayed in the bars
              C             G
        Along Charing Cross Road
           Am        G          C             F
        We never saw nothin' but brass taps and oak
                 C            G
        Kept the shine on the bar
                 C              G
        With the sleeves of our coats

  Chorus:
               G                      C                G
        You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
                  C          F
        I've been gone for a week
                  C             G
        I've been drunk since I left
              G
        These so-called vacations
             C          G
        Will soon be my death
               C             F
        I'm so sick from the drink
               G          C
        I need home for a rest ...

  Verse #2
   Am           G         C         F   
Euston Station the train journey north
   C                G
In the buffet car we lurched back and forth
   Am           G         C         F   
  
Past odd crooked dykes
 C                  G
  
Through Yorkshire's green fields
 C                  G
  
We were flung into dance
  C                 G
   
As the train jigged and reeled

  Chorus

  Verse #3
Am              G         C         F      
By the light of the moon she'd drift through the streets
   C                G
 
 A rare old perfume so seductive and sweet
Am              G         C         F      
   
She'd tease us and flirt as the pubs all closed down
   C                G
  
Then walk us on home and deny us a round

  Chorus

  Verse #4
 Am             G         C         F     
The gas heater's empty, it's damp as a tomb
 C                  G      C              G

  
And the spirits we drank like a ghost in the room
   
Am              G         C         F      

I'm knackered again, come on please take me soon
 C                  G      
 And don't lift up my head
 C                  G        
'till the twelve bells at noon

  Chorus
