500 Miles Away from Home
Bobby Bare Lyrics


I'm five hundred miles away from home

Teardrops fell on momma's note
When I read the things she wrote
She said we miss you son 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

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
I know this is the same road I took the day I left home (doo, doo, doo, doo, doo)
But it sure looks different now (doo, doo, doo, doo, doo)
And I guess I look different too (doo, doo, doo, doo, doo)
'Cause time changes everything (doo, doo, doo, doo, doo)
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
I wonder what they'll say (doo, doo, doo, doo, doo)
When they see their boy looking this bad (doo, doo, doo, doo, doo)

Oh I wonder what they'll say when I get 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 (away from home)
I'd be with them all tonight (away from home)
But I'm five hundred miles away from home (away from home)
Away from home, away from home
Cold and tired and all alone
Yes, I'm five hundred miles away from home
Oh, I'm five hundred miles away from home

I'm five hundred miles away from home.
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."
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.

I know this is the same road I took the day I left home
But it sure looks different now
Well, I guess I look different too cause time changes everything
I wonder what they'll say when they see their boy looking this way
Oh, I wonder what they'll say when I get 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...

I'm 500 miles away from home
Teardrops fell on momma's note
When I read the things she wrote
She said we miss you son we love you come on home
Well I didn't have to pack
I had it all right on my back
Now I'm 500 miles away from home
Away from home away from home
Cold and tired and all alone
Yes, I'm 500 miles away from home


I know this is the same road I took the day I left home,
But it sure looks different now. And I guess I look
Different too, cause time changes everything. I wonder what
They'll say, when they see their boy looking this bad.


Oh I wonder what they'll say when I get home
Can't remember when I ate
It's just thumb and walk and wait
And I'm still 500 miles away from home
If my luck had been just right
I'd be with them all tonight
But I'm 500 miles away from home
Away from home away from home
Oh I'm still 500 miles away from home

I wish some of the teenager's now appreciate this kind of masterpiece. I'm only 18 but i can say that a song like this is more beautiful rather than the new songs now. I love it! Specially, country music 💗

Dylan Smith

Must've listened to this a hundred times on the drive from Austin, Texas to Bozeman, Montana. Through wind, rain, and snow... creates an emotion too hard to describe.

Dewey Smith

I lived in Bozeman for a year, what a beautiful place.

Cindy Holliman

I know what you mean. I remember driving from N Illinois and having to stop and put chains on the car coming to Arkansas. This song makes me cry every time I hear it

Gary Ball

You need to get there the safest way you can let you know don't grow them wings yet cuz I know you're not ready for them yet
