From the recording OLD NEW BORROWED BLUE

An Arizona cowboy learns a lesson in heartbreak from across the pond. A fish out of water in London, England. . .these boots look out of place. At least he can find his way to the pub and try to drown her memory as she prepares to marry someone else.

OLD, NEW, BORROWED, BLUE

Longest flight I’ve ever been on
I can’t tell dusk from dawn
And I can’t find any coffee around here

Nearly got flattened crossing the street
But they’re the nicest folks you’ll ever meet
They got cabs like limousines

Big red bus will show you all the sights
Everything people say sounds so polite

These boots look out of place
In London town
I can’t seem to find
My way around
I’m feeling old
She’s got a love that’s new
I’m in a suit that’s borrowed
All I feel is blue

I got the invitation
Never in my imagination did I dream
She’d request my attendance

But I said I’d be there so I’ll be there
It’s her special day so I’ll just smile
And stay a while

I used to think she’d be mine
As long as old Big Ben was telling time

These boots look out of place
In London town
I can’t seem to find
My way around
I’m feeling old
She’s got a love that’s new
I’m in a suit that’s borrowed
And all I feel is blue

It’s a far cry from Arizona, about 56 degrees
They got food called bangers, and it turns out I like tea
I learned to mind that gap, and I don’t mind the rain
But my favorite thing is called the pub, where you can wash away the pain

(Leads)

These boots look out of place
In London town
I can’t seem to find
My way around
I’m feeling old
She’s got a love that’s new
I’m in a suit that’s borrowed
And all I feel is blue
