I'm 500 miles away from home Teardrops fell on momma'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 500 miles away from home Away from home away from home Cold and tired and all alone Yes, I'm 500 miles away from home
I know this is the same road I took the day I left home, But it sure looks different now. And I guess I look Different too, cause time changes everything. I wonder what They'll say, when they see their boy looking this bad.
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 500 miles away from home If my luck had been just right I'd be with them all tonight But I'm 500 miles away from home Away from home away from home Oh I'm still 500 miles away from home
