    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
