Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*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
, allemande left and weave the ring
**Well, I didn't have to pack
I had it all right on my back
Now I'm 500 miles
Away from home


ALTERNATE LYRICS

If you miss the train I'm on
You will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow
100 miles


**Lord, I'm one, Lord, I'm two
Lord, I'm three, Lord, I'm four
Lord, I'm five hundred miles
Away from home


Can't remember when I ate
It's just thumbing, walking, wait
And it's still 500 miles
Away from home


**If my luck had just been right
I'd been home with them tonight
But I'm 500 miles
Away from home


FIGURE   

Heads (sides) promenade it's half around
Walk in and square thru 4 hands round
Go all the way, right & left thru
Pass thru, trade by
Split that outside two round one, that corner swing
You take her by the hand and promenade that ring
Lord, I'm 500 miles
Away from home


TAG

Lord, I'm 500 miles
Away from home

500 Miles From Home
 
 

If you missed 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

Not a shirt on my back, not a penny to my name
And the land that I once loved is not my own
Lord I'm one, Lord I'm two, Lord I'm three, Lord I'm four
Lord I'm five hundred miles away from home

A hundred tanks along the square, one man stands and stops them there
Someday soon the tide'll turn and I'll be free
Well I'll be free, I'll be free, I'll come home to my country
Someday soon the tide'll turn and I'll be free

If you missed the train I'm on, you will know that I am gone
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 away from home
Lord I'm five hundred miles away from home, yea

Well I'll be free, I'll be free, I'll come home to my country
Lord I'm five hundred miles away from home
You can hear the whistle blow five hundred miles
Lord I'm five hundred miles away from home

Lyrics by John Phillips and Hedy West.
Recorded by The Journeymen; Kingston Trio; Peter, Paul and Mary; many others.
