500 Miles
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

If my honey said so
I'd railroad no more
I'd sidetrack my engine and go home
And go home
And go home
And go home
And go home
I'd sidetrack my engine and go home

Lord, I'm one, Lord, I'm two
Lord, I'm three, Lord, I'm four
Lord, I'm five hundred miles away from home
Away from home
Away from home
Away from home
Away from home
Lord, I'm five hundred miles away from home

I told my little letter
Just as plain as I could tell her
She'd better come along and go with me
Go with me
Go with me
Go with me
Go with me
She'd better come along and go with me

My clothes are all worn
My shoes are all torn
Lord, I can't make a living this a-way
This-a way
This-a way
This-a way
This-a way
Lord, I can't make a living this a-way

If this train runs me right
I'll be back tomorrow night
I'm coming down the line on number nine
Number nine
Number nine
Number nine
Number nine
For I'm coming down the line on number nine

Not a shirt on my back
Not a penny to my name
Lord I can't go back home this a-way
This-a way
This-a way
This-a way
This-a way
Lord I can't go back 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
A hundred miles
A hundred miles
A hundred miles
A hundred miles
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles
