Ten Million Miles
Patty Griffin

Note: Original version is Capo 9 playing E and A shapes.

 

Capo 1

 

                     C

I must have walked ten million miles

                  F9                        C
Must have walked ten million miles

                    F9                            C
Wore some shoes that weren't my style

F9               C
Ten million miles

               C
I've been kind of told some lies

            F9                         C
Like anyone who's lived or died

             F9                     C
Like anyone who's ever tried

       F9                     C
To walk ten million miles

         C
I memorize and I forget

                 F9                   C
I do some things that I regret

                F9                C
Wish for things I never get

                 F9                  C
Walk in the rain and get wet

                     C
I must have walked ten million miles

                  F9                       C
Must have walked ten million miles

                 F9                 C
So think before you criticize

F9                C
Ten million miles

                 C
I traveled 'round from place to place

                   F9                      C
Wore some rags around my waist

                  F9                    C
And other times, a dress of lace

                  F9                             C
And always search for your sweet face

                   F9                         C
You oughta come some time for tea

           F9                       C
Maybe we could see the sea

           F9                     C
Talk a lot, or let things be

          F9               C
Just enjoy the mystery

                    C
I must have walked ten million miles

                  F9                        C
Must have walked ten million miles

                   F9                              C
Wore some shoes that weren't my style

        F9                     C
Fell into the rank and file

           F9                         C
So just say I was here a while

              F9                              C
A fool in search of your sweet smile

        F9        C
Ten million miles
