500 Miles Away From Home

In the style of

Bobby Bare

Lyrics

i'm five hundred miles
away from home

teardrops fell
on mama's note
when i read
the things she wrote
she said
we miss you son
we love you
come on home

well i didn't
have to pack
i had it all
right on my back
now i'm
five hundred miles
away from home

away from home
away from home
cold and tired
and all alone
yes i'm
five hundred miles
away from home

i know
this is the same road
i took the day
i left home
but it sure
looks different now

well i guess
i look different too
'cause time
changes everything

i wonder
what they'll say
when they see
their boy
lookin' this way

oh i wonder
what they'll say
when i get home

can't remember
when i ate
it's just thumb
and walk and wait
and i'm still
five hundred miles
away from home

well if my luck
had been just right
i'd be with them
all tonight
but i'm still
five hundred miles
away from home

away from home
away from home
cold and tired
and all alone
yes i'm still
five hundred miles
away from home

oh i'm still
five hundred miles
away from home
