This Intro is played once then along with the chorus
        You'll [Am]have to ex[G]cuse me, I'm [C]not at my [F]best
        I've been [C]gone for a [G]month
        I've been drunk since I [C]left
        These [Am]so called va[G]cations
        Will [C]soon be my [F]death
        I'm so [C]sick from the [G]drink
        I need home for a [C]rest ...
Then it breaks into a verse with fast paced chords:
        We [Am]arrived in De[G]cember and [C]London was [F]cold
        So we [C]stayed in the [G]bars
        Along [C]Charing Cross [G]Road
        We [Am]never saw [G]nothin' but [C]brass taps and [F]oak
        Kept the [C]shine on the [G]bar
        With the [C]sleeves of our [G]coats
Chorus:
        You'll [G]have to excuse me, I'm [C]not at my [G]best
        I've been [C]gone for a [F]week
        I've been [C]drunk since I [G]left
        These [G]so-called vacations
        Will [C]soon be my [G]death
        I'm so [C]sick from the [F]drink
        I need [G]home for a [C]rest ...
Verse #2
Euston Station the train journey north
In the buffet car we lurched back and forth
Past odd crooked dykes
Through Yorkshire's green fields
We were flung into dance
As the train jigged and reeled
Chorus
Verse #3
By the light of the moon she'd drift through the streets
A rare old perfume so seductive and sweet
She'd tease us and flirt as the pubs all closed down
Then walk us on home and deny us a round
Chorus
Verse #4
The gas heater's empty, it's damp as a tomb
And the spirits we drank like a ghost in the room
I'm knackered again, come on please take me soon
And don't lift up my head
'till the twelve bells at noon
Chorus
