Peter, Paul And Mary - 500 Miles Lyrics

If you miss the train I'm on, you will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles
A hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles

Lord, I'm one, Lord, I'm two, Lord, I'm three, Lord, I'm four
Lord, I'm five hundred miles from my home
Five hundred miles, five hundred miles, five hundred miles, five hundred miles
Lord, I'm five hundred miles from my home

Not a shirt on my back, not a penny to my name
Lord, I can't go a-home this a-way
This a-away, this a-way, this a-way, this a-way
Lord, I can't go a-home this a-way

If you miss the train I'm on, you will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles

  4. amp3cx10000a7jp

    The distance of 500 miles is the distance from Tokyo in Hiroshima City where the atomic bomb was dropped in 1945.
    I think it is the worst indiscriminate killing of mankind.

  5. Arleen Betos Butner

    I’m allowed a dream. Folk music returns. If only I could share that dream. I lived without a leash.


    So "Jab koi bat bigad jae" is a copy of this song!Kumar sanu g went too far🤦

  7. Peter MacKay

    Sweet and delightful, nectar for the soul. Thank God we had Peter, Paul and Mary and that we can still enjoy their lovely sounds today.

    PP&M came into the cafeteria at Berkeley before they became famous and spontaneously began to perform. I was a busboy that day, and the word spread so fast, and the place became so jammed that I had to leave a cart in a corner at the end of my shift.

    My late grandma used to play this song to my dad and his siblings when he was young. He showed it to me for the first time last week and he explained what it meant to him. It was such a moving moment and listening to this song makes me feel nostalgic, especially since my grandma passed away quite recently, just over a year ago.
    This is the only song that will make me cry...

    I remembered when I heard this song as a kid it sounded so sad I went to my bed and cried
