Three Thousand Miles
by Dustin Bentall



You should've seen this waitress I knew in Port Alberni
She was a wildflower, Her name was Nadine
Seems like everyone of my friends in that valley
Was stoned crazy, It's a good thing I got out of that scene

'Cause I love gettin' high and I talk when I'm stoned
Just like right now, like I'm talkin' to you

I came 3000 miles on a greyhound
and I've got 3000 miles left to do.

I was 4 days in jail and every morning
I called my mother and she hung up the phone.
I was sittin' in the dark and that was my farewell
4 days in the city cell that I did Christmas in jail

'Cause I love gettin' high and I talk when I'm stoned
Just like right now, like I'm talkin' to you

When you're 3000 miles on a greyhound
You've got 3000 miles left to do

I was crazy to buy an old black chevy
I can't even get it on the road until my license is good
Come the end of July it's my last court date
I can't wait to celebrate, stop by and do a line off the hood

'Cause I love gettin' high and I talk when I'm stoned
Just like right now, like I'm talkin' to you

I came 3000 miles on a greyhound
and I've got 3000 miles left to do

Well I ran it back down just like a scene of a crime
and if I ever go back to settle down
I'd take that bus back out West and find me an old lady
I always figured by 30 and I'd stop smokin' dope and screwin' around

'Cause I love gettin' high and I talk when I'm stoned
Just like right now, like I'm talkin' to you

When you're 3000 miles on a greyhound
you've got 3000 miles left to do

Yeah, I love gettin' high and I talk when I'm stoned
Just like right now, like I'm talkin' to you

I came 3000 miles on a greyhound
and I've got 3000 miles left to do
