A Million Miles To The City
By Tom T. Hall
Written by Tom T. Hall
Album: In Search Of A Song (1971)
Tabbed by Larry Mofle

Capo 1

          C             F                      C
Yeah, I remember it now we were kids back then living down on the farm
G                                F             C
We were told that the city could only bring us harm
    C               F             C
How far is the city somebody said you know that's a great big town
    G                                    F                   C
And Barbara said why it's a million miles and the story got around

       F                    C
It's a million miles to the city 
         G                        C 
From the hills and the valleys we know
       F                    C
It's a million miles to the city
    G                    C
And someday we all wanna go

There was a town near by but a town is a town and a city, well that's somethin' else
Our daddy had been to a city but he never was much help
Why the buildings are taller than oak trees, ah but we knew better than that
Ain't nobody could climb that high, the cities were wide and flat


Well now time has passed and we have grown and traveled far and wide
The cities have changed the kids we were we see it in each other's eyes
Lord I'd love to go back to those hills again to the boy I used to be
Where the leaves in the wind and the whippoorwills were part of the land like me
