Recorded By Bobby Bare

(The chords shown seem to work ok, but there may be some 
chord changes missing.  The version by Peter, Paul and Mary
has more chord changes, as well as different lyrics).



     D7            C              G
I'm five hundred miles away from home
G
Teardrops fell on mama's note,
                           Em	
when I read the things she wrote
            D7                C                 D7
She said "We miss you son, we love you, come on home"
       G                                             Em
Well I didn't have to pack, I had it all right on my back
        D7            C              G
Now I'm five hundred miles away from home

Chorus:
 G
Away from home, away from home
                        Em
Cold and tired and all alone
         D7           C              G
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

(Change to key of D - D,A7,G,Bm)

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
	
Repeat chorus (In Key of G)

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