500 MILES
Written by: Hedy West

Not to be confused with the Bobby Bare song, "500 Miles Away from Home,"
that was written by Bobby Bare & Charlie "Curley" Williams.


If you miss the 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.

Lord, I'm one, Lord I'm two,
Lord, I'm three, Lord I'm four,
Lord, I'm 500 miles,
From my home.
500 miles, 500 miles,
500 miles, 500 miles
Lord, I'm 500 miles,
From my 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.

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