1000 Miles
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
Time don't matter to me
'Cause I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
And there's no place I want to be

I got heartaches in my pocket
I got echoes in my head
And all that I keep hearing
Are the cruel cruel things that you said
I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
Time don't matter to me
'Cause I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
And there's no place I want to be
Oh, I
Oh, I
Oh, I
Oh, I
Oh, I
Oh, I

I got bruises on my memory
I got tear stains on my hands
And in the mirror there's a vision
Of what used to be a man

I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
Time don't matter to me
'Cause I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
And there's no place I want to be

I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
Time don't matter to me
'Cause I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
And there's no place I want to be

Oh I'm
I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
I'm a thousand, I'm a thousand, I'm a thousand

Clean Lyric

Paragraph Lyric

Runway four, flight 209
Teardrops fall, we start to climb
This window seat proved a poor choice
It shows the dream that's been destroyed

A little baby starts to cry
Hey, I would too if not for pride
I owe so much to pride it's true
It brought an end to me and you

Chorus:
If I could, I'd turn around
Set my feet back on the ground
'Cause all this plane ride holds for me 
Is a thousand miles of misery

I hear the engines, watch the clouds
The whole damn world looks distant now
But I can't seem to put no space
Between my cold heart and your sweet face

Across the aisle they're holding hands
Revealing brand new wedding bands
But our sweet gold, it's gone to rust
Now my life has turned to dust

Chorus:
If I could, I'd turn around
Set my feet back on the ground
'Cause all this plane ride hold for me
Is a thousand miles of misery
All this plane ride holds for me
Is a thousand miles of misery

The fiddle and the steele in this is phenomenal

Sterling Fox

It’s like he has the Steele in his voice 👌

HotPocketDeluxe

Funny thing is, there is actually no steel in this, all the steel parts are “pedal steel licks” played by Pete Anderson on regular guitar

Robert Murphy

Indeed.

paintdog1

I agree. One of the cleanest I’ve ever heard. Love this song.

Roy Jenkins

JEFF HAWKINS

Aiden Bear

Lindsey Keshane

Hard to beat good ol' country music,it can't be beaten.

Brenda Cochran

It takes a different kind of people to truly appreciate the art and soul of his music..he isn't your typical country musician. His talents are surpassed by no other. His intelligence is admirable. He is well-read and educated with a vast knowledge of so many subjects. Memorable human being for the history books..
