(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 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 luck had been just right I'd be with them all tonight But I'm still five hundred miles away from home Away from home, away from home Cold and tired and all alone Yes, I'm five hundred miles away from home Oh, I'm still five hundred miles away from home ********************* As recorded by REBA McENTIRE: 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 Away from home, away from home Cold and tired and all alone Yes, I'm five hundred miles away from home It's hard to tell the state I'm in Where I'm goin', where I've been But there's a dream I've been followin' so long If Mama knew the things I've done She'd forgive them ev'ryone But I'm still five hundred miles away from home Away from home, away from home Cold and tired and all alone Yes, I'm five hundred miles away from home (Instrumental Break) 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 luck had been just right I'd be with them all tonight But I'm still five hundred miles away from home Away from home, away from home Cold and tired and all alone Yes, I'm five hundred miles away from home Lord, I'm still five hundred miles away from home
