"500 Miles" as written by and Robt Hyman/eric Bazilian/rich Chertoff/west....
Hedy West
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.

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

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.

[First verse]

You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.
