Two Hundred Miles Away

This song is by Wizz Jones and Andy Irvine and appears on the live album Folk Friends 2 (1981) by various artists.

Two hundred miles away
I've got a friend today
Trouble is at his door
I wish I could tell you more
But I'm helpless to help you
I'm helpless to help you old friend

Two hundred miles away
Is not very far you say
Maybe I should go there
His trouble is hard to bear
But I'm helpless to help you
I'm helpless to help you old friend

You came to London town
Said you were coming round
We waited up for you
We even prayed for you
Your voice on the telephone
So soft and so sad and so alone

I know I should sit down
And write you a letter
'Cause you just wanna take a gun
Go out and get her
And you won't believe
When she says she will never come home

Two hundred miles away
I've got a friend today
Maybe I could do more
They say that's what friends are for
But I'm helpless to help you
I'm helpless to help you old friend

I heard on the vine
She's living out in the desert
With a new love so kind
Who's always buying her presents
And it's hard to imagine her
With anyone other than you

Two hundred miles away
I've got a friend today
Maybe I should go there
They say that's what friends are for
But I'm helpless to help you now
Helpless to help you old friend
Old fiend ...
