Subject: RE: 900 Miles/500 miles
Hmm. A lot of these sound like songs to slit your wrists by. However, the New Christy Minstrels recorded a '900 Miles' which racketed and clicked along. Not happy exactly, but not listless, either.

You see me goin down this track
and I'm never comin back.
Next time you see me, I'll be home.
Make my bed and light the lights,
I'll be with you Monday night,
cause I'm 900 miles from my home.

Heeeeear that whistle blo-ow.
Can't you hear that whistle blow?
999, I agree with you that PP+M sang that version.

I've been lonely, I've been blue,
darlin I've been true to you....
