I remember it now we were kids back then living down on the farm
We were told that the city could only bring us harm
Well how far away is the city you know that's a great big town
And Barbara said why it's a million miles and then the story got around
It's a million miles to the city from the hills and valleys we know
It's a million miles to the city and some day we all wanna go

There was a town nearby but a town is a town and a city that's somethin' else
Our daddy had been to a city but he never was much help
The buildings're taller than oak trees ah but we knew better than that
Cause ain't nobody could climb that high the city was wide and flat
It's a million miles...
[ guitar ]
The years have passed and we have grown and traveled far and wide
The cities have changed the kids we were we see it in each other's eyes
Lord I'd love to go back to those hills again to the boy I used to be
Where the leaves in the wind and the whippoorwills
Were all just a part of the land like me
It's a million miles...
