Five Hundred Miles

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 five hundred miles
Away from home,
Away from home,
away from home,
Away from home, away from home,
Lord, I'm five hundred miles
Away from home.

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