1000 Miles Away
Written by: Shane "Shep" Sheppard
& William H. Miller

Verse 1:
You're a thousand miles away-ay,
((Doo-doo.)/(Rat-a-tat-tat.)
Bu-u-t I still have your love to remember you by.
-(Rat-a-tat-tat.)/((You by.))
Oh, my dar-ar-ar-arling, dry your eyes,
-(Rat-a-tat-tat-tat.)/((Your eyes.))
Daddy's coming home soon./
-(Whoo-hooo-hooo, hoo-hooo, hoo-hooo.)

Verse 2:
On my knees e-every day-ay,
-(Rat-a-tat-tat.)((All I do.))
All I do is pray, baby, just for you.
-(Rat-a-tat-tat.)((For you.)
Hope you a-a-a-always want me too,
-(Rat-a-tat-tat.)((Me too.)
-(Whoo-hooo-hooo, woo-ooo.)

Bridge:
It may be on a Sunday morning./((Doo-ooo.))
It may be on a Tuesday afternoon./((Doo-ooo.))
But no matter what the day is,/((Doo-ooo.))
I'm going to make it (doo wah.)
My business (doo wah.)
To get home soon.
(Rad-a, rad-a, rad-a, rad-a.)

Verse 1, repeated:
You're (a thousand miles away),
Bu-u-t I still have your love to remember you by.
-(Rat-a-tat-tat.)/((You by.))
Oh, my dar-ar-ar-arling, dry your eyes,
-(Rat-a-tat-tat.)-((Your eyes.))
Daddy's coming ho-ome soo-oo-oo-oon.
(Wooo-ooo-ooo, oo-ooo, oo-oo-ooo.)
(Woot-toot-ooo.)-((Doo.))
(Doo-wee-ooo-ooo.)
