500 Miles Away From Home

Reba McEntire

Teardrops fell on moma's note
When I read the things she wrote
She said: "we miss you girl, 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 going, where I've been
But there's a dream I've been following so long
If mama knew the things I've done
She'd forgive them everyone
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

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 five hundred miles away from home
