Lonnie Donegan – 500 Miles Away From Home lyrics
(I'm five hundred miles away from home)

Teardrops fell on mama's note,
When I read the things she wrote
She said "We miss you son, we love you, come on home"
Well I didn't have to pack, I had it all right on my
Back
Now I'm five hundred miles away from home

Chorus:
Away from home, away from home
Cold and tired and all alone
Yes I'm five hundred miles away from home

(Spoken) I know this is the same coat
I took when I left home
But it sure looks different now
And I guess I look different too
But time changes everything
I wonder what they'll say,
When they see their boy lookin' this way
(Sung) Oh, I wonder what they'll say when I get home

Can't remember when I ate, it's just thumb and walk and
Wait
And I'm still five hundred miles away from home
If my love had been just right, I'd be with them all
Tonight
But I'm still five hundred miles away from home

Chorus

Oh, I'm still five hundred miles away from home
