Well, this is pretty much one of the most well known songs in Texas. If you sing the first line around here someone will certainly chime in with the second, just like "The stars at night are big and bright...." Yes, I just clapped 4 times..... London Homesick Blues was a song written by Gary P. Nunn and made famous by Jerry Jeff Walker. The story about a guy longing for home while in the U.K.'s capitol city. This shirt was stitched while we were in London over what we call "The Break". We were looking for a bit of wide open spaces and friendly faces as well. Stitched on a 1950's Big Smith sanfordized shirt, our Texan fancies to take his chances.
There is a small hole and stain on the front of this shirt as seen in photo. Otherwise in great condition for a 70 year old shirt!!
