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 five hundred 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
