Lyrics
If you miss the base, I'm on,
And you will know that I am gone.
You can hear the missiles go
One hundred miles.
One hundred miles, one hundred miles,
One hundred miles, one hundred miles,
You can hear the missiles go
One hundred miles.

Not a shirt on my back,
Not a scarf around my neck.
And the land I´m looking for is not my own.
Five hundred miles, five hundred miles,
Five hundred miles, five hundred miles,
You can hear the missiles go
Five hundred miles.

Lord, I´m one, Lord, I´m two,
Lord, I´m three, Lord, I´m four,
George, I´m five hundred miles
Away from home.
Five hundred miles, five hundred miles,
Five hundred miles, five hundred miles,
You can hear the missiles go
Five hundred miles.

If you miss the base, I'm on,
And you will know that I am gone.
You can hear the missiles go
Five hundred miles.
Five hundred miles, five hundred miles,
Five hundred miles, five hundred miles,
You can hear the missiles go
Five hundred miles.
George, you can hear the missiles go
Five hundred miles.
