“Mileage” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: T-Bone Slim.
Tune: “You’re a Million Miles from Nowhere (When You’re One Little Mile from Home).”


Though you travel the whole world o’er,
See the ends of the earth and more,
Far in the ambient air,
You’ve never yet been anywhere.

You’re a million miles from nowhere
When you haven’t a Wobbly card.
If you look and see you’ll find
You’re a trillion years behind.
You have left the gates of reason
When you pass up this great reward.
You’re a million miles from nowhere
When you haven’t a Wobbly card.

As you travel this vale of tears,
In the shadow of unknown fears,
Freedom’s as far as a star.
You’ve never yet been very far.

You’re a million miles from nowhere
When you haven’t a Wobbly card.
If you look and see you’ll find
You’re a trillion years behind.
You have left the gates of reason
When you pass up this great reward.
You’re a million miles from nowhere
When you haven’t a Wobbly card.

You’re a million miles from nowhere
When you haven’t a Wobbly card.
If you look and see you’ll find
You’re a trillion years behind.
You have left the gates of reason
When you pass up this great reward.
You’re a million miles from nowhere
When you haven’t a Wobbly card.
