According to a couple of online sources, SIX THOUSAND LONELY MILES was recorded by the Fureys on their album "Claddagh Road." This album seems to be out of print, so information is sketchy. So far, I have been unsuccessful at finding lyrics or sound samples.

I at first ignored Menzze's link because he/she called it "6000 Miles" rather than "6000 Lonely Miles." I figured it was another one of those red herrings you see so often at Mudcat: someone asks for "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" and someone else says "Do you mean this one?" and then they post the lyrics to "Black Velvet Band." That kind of stuff drives me nuts.

But it wasn't the case this time. Menzze actually found a recording by Paddie Bell (once a member of The Corries) of 6000 LONELY MILES on her album "Make Me Want to Stay," 1997. It has a sound sample, but I found it hard to understand:
    I rose to see the moonlit beach (?) ... through the darkest ...
    ... knowing you are so far away, six thousand lonely miles.
Maybe someone more familiar with her accent can decipher it better than I.

Here's my transcription. His pronunciation is mostly quite distinct, but I am unfamiliar with his accent, and some lines don't quite make sense to me, so it leaves me in doubt that my transcription is correct.


6,000 LONELY MILES
As sung by Finbar Furey on the album "Finbar Furey" (2009)

1. I arose to see the moonlit beach(?)
Knife through the dark well(?) clouds,
Still knowing(?) you are so far away,
Six thousand lonely miles.

CHORUS: Six thousand lonely miles from me,
But we as one will ever be.
The sands of time know history(?).
We'll kiss then part and meet(?).

2. I miss the voice that speaks my name.
Its joy now breaks my heart;
And it's sad I am you're so far away,
Two different worlds apart.

3. I pray for you when shadows fall,
At the close of every day.
Each moment my heart bleeds for you.
It's reaching 'cross the sea.

4. I'll wait for you, my child of light,
Like darkness awaits the day
I'll hold you close inside my heart
Till you return to me.
