Five Hundred Miles (500 Miles) - Lyrics

If you miss this train I'm on, you will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles,
A hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles,
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.

Yes I'm one, yes I'm two, yes I'm three, yes I'm four,
Yes I'm 500 miles away from home.
Away from home, away from home, away from home, away from home
Yes, I'm 500 miles away from home.

Not a shirt on my back, not a penny to my name
Lord I can't go a-home this a-way
This a-away, this a-way, this a-way, this a-way,
Lord I can't go a-home this a-way.

So If you miss this train I'm on, you will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles,
A hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles,
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.

You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles
