There's a thread going about Five Hundred Miles, and there's a song called Nine Hundred Miles in the DT. That inspired me to look up a song I remember from way back: Nine Hundred Miles by the New Christy Minstrels.

You can learn the tune from the video on YouTube. Just search for

NINE HUNDRED MILES New Christy Minstrels

This is a good song to sing in the car as you speed down the freeway out in the country.

NINE HUNDRED MILES
As recorded by The New Christy Minstrels on "The Greenwich Village Playlist" (2017)
1. Oh, I'm walkin' down this track and I'm never turnin' back.
Next time you see me, I'll be home.
There's a train a-comin' soon; I'll be there next Sunday noon,
'Cause I'm nine hundred miles from my home.

2. Lord, I'm hungry and I'm sore like I never been before.
Never have I been so all alone.
Now I'm on a one-way track and I'm never turnin' back.
Yes, I'm nine hundred miles from my home.

3. I've been lonely; I've been blue; darlin', I’ve been true to you.
There's an achin' in my heart you’ll never know.
Make my bed and light the light; I'll be with you Sunday night
'Cause I'm nine hundred miles from my home.

[BRIDGE] Hear that whistle blow.
Can't you hear that whistle blow?

4. Won't you try to understand? I was born a ramblin' man.
Just like a gypsy I have roamed.
Now those days are all behind; got a woman on my mind,
And I'm nine hundred miles from my home.

Can't you hear that whistle blow?
Oooh oooh [whistle sound]

Here's an excellent example of the whistle sound you should emulate:
