Buffy Sainte-Marie – Many A Mile I Have Gone lyrics

I've damn near walked this world around
Another city, another town
Another friend to say goodbye
Another time to sit and cry

For it's many a mile I have spent on this road
Many a mile I have gone

Well there was one, he knew me best
You know he gave my poor heart rest
He was my world, my heart, my dear
And now he's gone to God know where

I seen your towns, they're all the same
The only difference is in a name
And the only home I ever knowed
Was a suitcase and the open road

So I'll fill my glass up to the brim
And thru my glass, the world looks dim
I know outside there's love somewhere
Maybe my rambling will bring me there
