500 Miles written by Hedy West, performed by Rosanne Cash below. Also recorded by Elvis, Peter, Paul and Mary, Joan Baez and many others.

The following, containing ukulele chords and lyrics, will show you how to play “500 Miles” on ukulele. (Ukulele Chord Chart)

Use the Key Transposition Chart if you need assistance changing the key to Bb for which Ms. Cash uses, or find the Peter, Paul and Mary version which is in the key of C. I just like Rosanne Cash’s version best.
C                       Am

If you miss the train i’m on

Dm                    F

Then you’ll know that i have gone

Dm                 Em       F     G

You can hear the whistle blow a 100 miles

 

C               Am

A 100 miles a 100 miles

Dm                 F

A 100 miles one hundred miles

Dm            Em            F          C

You can hear the whistle blow a 100 miles

 

Teardrops fell on mama’s note

When i read the things she wrote

She said “we miss you hon we love you come on home”

 

Well i didn’t have to pack

I had it all right on my back

Now i’m 500 miles away from home

 

Lord i’m 1 lord i’m 2

Lord i’m 3 lord i’m 4

Lord i’m 500 miles away from my home

 

All these years and all these roads

Never lead me back to you

I’m always 500 miles away from home

 

Away from home away from home

Always out here on my own

I’m still 500 miles away from home

I’m still 500 miles away from home
