    1000 Miles Away

    Hoodoo Gurus

     

    A (2)                                    D (2)

    Estimated time of arrival nine thirty AM

         A (2)                                                  D (2)

    Been up before the sun and now I'm tired before I even begin

    E                    F#m                Bm7             

      (Now you're flying) I got so much work in front of me

    E                       F#m         Bm7           

      (Really flying) It stretches out far as the eye can

    A (2)            D (2)

       see  I can see

     

           A (2)                                                D (2)

    Spent half my life in airports doing crosswords or attempting to sleep

          A (2)                                                 D (2)

    And when the bar is open then you'll often find I'm warming a seat

    E                   F#m                   Bm7              

      (Now you're flying) I never find a place where I can stay

    E                F#m                Bm7           

      (Really flying) I'd rather be a thousand miles away

    A (2)                  D (2)

        A thousand miles away

     

    / A - - - / - - - - / D - - - / - - - - /

    (band enters)

    / A - - - / - - - - / D - - - / - - - - /

     

     A (2)                                                      D (2)

    Working for yourself sometimes ain't all that it's cracked up to be

    A (2)                                                     D (2)

    It can be as lonely at the top as at the bottom of that corporate tree

    E                          F#m             Bm7              

      (Now you're flying) I'm told I'm going places who can say

    E                 F#m                            Bm7              

      (Really flying)    I might arrive but I'll be gone the very next day

    A (2)                  D (2)

       I must be on my way

    A (2)                  D (2)

       a thousand miles away

        A (2)                                                 D (2)

    I promise to myself someday I'll take the time and try to make sense

        A (2)                                                D (2)

    Out of all those opportunities I lost I'm trying to sit on the fence

     

    E                      F#m                  Bm7              

      (Now you're flying) Right now I got no time for yesterday

    E                  F#m             Bm7              

      (Really flying) Yesterday's a thousand miles away,

    A (2)                   D (2)

      a thousand miles away   (a thousand miles away)

    A (2)                   D (2)

      a thousand miles away   (a thousand miles away)

     

    E                       F#m                 Bm7               

      (Now you're flying) What was that that you were trying to say

    E      F#m            Bm7

        I guess I was a thousand miles

     

      A (2)         (D) (2)

    away    hey hey hey

                A (2)          D (2)

    hey hey hey   hey hey hey     (A thousand miles away)

    A (2)            D (2)

      Sing it again      (A thousand miles away)

    A (2)            D (2)

      Sing it again      (A thousand miles away)

    A (2)            D (2)

      Sing it again      (A thousand miles away)
