​Kings Cross Blues

This song is by Lindisfarne and appears on the album Back And Fourth (1978).

Jackson-Harcourt

Early train starts on time
Everybody else is feeling fine
Reading the papers and studying the form
And the people just taking this as norm.

Except me
I don't seem to function till at least a quarter to three
Stare at the floor
I don't want to take this Kings Cross train no more.

I'm drinking whiskey at the bar
Can't afford the dining car
Ruddy faced soldiers drink and curse
Buy themselves out if it gets worse.

Grates on me
'Cause I don't even share the same philosophy
Leaving the bar
Well, I wish that Kings Cross station didn't have to be so far.

Kings Cross blues
Kings Cross blues.

Kings Cross blues
Kings Cross blues.

Well, taking this journey to the South
To find work to feed the extra mouth
I'll find it hard to have to say
'Cause they don't talk the same way.

Grates on me
Well, I don't even share the same philosophy
Leaving the bar
Oh, wish that Kings Cross station didn't have to be so far.
