Willesden Green

Written by: Ray Davies
Published by: Coronado Music

Well I tried to settle down Fulham Broadway

And I tried to make my home in Golders Green

But I gotta get that train

And go back home again

Oh how I miss the folks back home in Willesden Green

You know, I tried, I really tried to settle in this big city

And I always thought I could make it all on my very own

But there's one thing that keeps calling me

To that little, that little semi-detached

That's the folks, yeah, the folks back home
In Willesden Green
