Music/ Lyrics by Jim Ferrie

It's 4 o'clock in the morning,
But there's no sleep on me
So I'm surfing a missing loved ones site
Hoping you've been seen

I see your face when I'm dreamin'
And my heart skips a beat
when I pick up the phone or think it's you
Walkin' down the street

No I'm not one for prayin' much
But lately I've been doin' it more
I would give up this fight for a sign you're alright
Wish you'd call or write or just come walkin'
Through that old front door

'Coz if you need me I'll board a plane
An' if the airport's closed I'll take a train
An' if the rails are broke I'll take a bus
An' if the bus breaks down I'll walk
Ten Thousand Miles
To bring you home again.

Your friends keep asking about you
They search like me I guess
For an answer to why you up'd and left
Only you know best

I ache to know that you're happy
And if you've found a friend
And if you're needing some cash to make ends meet
Tell me where to send....

No I'm not one for prayin' much
But lately I've been doin' it more
I would give up this fight for a sign you're alright
Wish you'd call or write or just come walkin' through
That old front door

'Coz if you need me I'll board a plane
An' if the airport's closed I'll take a train
An' if the rails are broke I'll take a bus
An' if the bus breaks down I'll walk
Ten Thousand Miles
To bring you home again.

If you're happy I'll leave you alone,
I'll be hurtin', but I gotta to know
And if you're needin' a friend
And you're feelin' you've come to the end
Call me and I'll be there,
By land by sea or by air,
I'm ready to go

'Coz if you need me I'll board a plane
An' if the airport's closed I'll take a train
An' if the rails are broke I'll take a bus
An' if the bus breaks down I'll walk
Ten Thousand Miles
To bring you home again.
