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 a way from home.
Away from home, away from home, 
away from home, away from home, 
Lord, I'm five hundred miles away from home.

Not a shirt on my back, 
not a penny to my name. 
Lord, I can't go back home this-a way.
This-a way, this-a way, 
this-a way, this-a way, 
Lord, I can't go back 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.
A hundred miles, a hundred miles, 
a hundred miles, a hundred miles, 
you can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.
