10,000 miles lyrics – mary chapin carpenter

10,000 miles

fare thee well
my own true love
farewell for a while
i’m going away
but i’ll be back
though i go 10,000 miles

10,000 miles
my own true love
10,000 miles or more
the rocks may melt
and the seas may burn
if i should not return

oh don’t you see
that lonesome dove
sitting on an ivy tree
she’s weeping for
her own true love
as i shall weep for mine

oh come ye back
my own true love
and stay a while with me
if i had a friend
all on this earth
you’ve been a friend to me
