"Johnny Come Lately (Solo)"

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

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

When I first got to London it was pouring 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 "shut out the lights"
Death raining out of the London night
We made love until dawn

But when Johnny come lately, comes marching home
With a chest full of medals and a G.I. loan
They'll be waiting at the station down in San Antone
When Johnny comes marching home

My P-47 is a pretty good ship
And she took a round coming cross the Channel last trip
I was thinking about my baby and letting her rip
Always got me through so far
