There's thousand miles in back of me
And many more to go,
Riding on a freight train feeling mighty low.
I keep wonderin' why she quit me,
Now I guess I'll never know.
Yes, she used to be my baby a thousand miles ago.

Chorus:
A thousand miles ago I started feeling bad
'Cause I just lost the future I thought I really had.
I know I shouldn't feel this way
'Cause I still love her so.
Oh, she used to be my baby a thousand miles ago.

Well, I know I've held her in my arms
A thousand times or more-
Promised her a world of love 'til I learned the score.
That's why I'm feeling lonesome, that's why I'm feeling low.
She used to be my baby a thousand miles ago.
Yes, that's why I'm feeling lonesome,
That's why I'm feeling low-
She used to be my baby a thousand miles ago.

Repeat Chorus
