'500 Miles'  Hedy West

"If you miss the train I'm on, you will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles"

"500 Miles" (also known as "500 Miles Away from Home" or "Railroaders' Lament") is a song made popular in the United States and Europe during the 1960s folk revival. The simple repetitive lyrics offer a lament by a traveller who is far from home, out of money and too ashamed to return. bron: Wikipedia.
Niet alleen Rosanne Cash, maar ook veel andere artiesten hebben dit lied vertolkt, zoals bijvoorbeeld Joan Baez (1965), of Peter, Paul and Mary in 1962.

'500 Miles'  Rosanne Cash

If you miss the train I'm on, you'll know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles
A hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles, one hundred miles
You can hear the whistle blow, a hundred miles

Teardrops fell on momma'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 five hundred miles away from home

Lord I'm one, Lord I'm two, Lord I'm three, Lord I'm four
Lord I'm five hundred miles away from home

All these years and all these roads
Never led me back to you
I'm always five hundred miles away from home
Away from home, away home
Always out here on my own
I'm still five hundred miles away from home
I'm still five hundred miles away from home
