1000 MILES FROM NOWHERE (Dwight Yoakam)
---------------------------------------
[I personally like to play this in G; that way you can do easier bass runs
 and stuff.]
[*, **, or *** means play one of the riffs at the bottom.]

C  Am  C  Am
[intro]

      C                     Am   *
I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
C                       Am   **
  Time don't matter to me
             C                       Am
'Cause I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
             F                  G ***  G
And there's no place I wanna be

I got heartaches in my pocket
I got echoes in my head
And all that I keep hearing
Are the cruel, cruel things that you said

I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
Time don't matter to me
'Cause I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
And there's no place I wanna be

   F  F   G  G    F  F   G  G   Am  Am
Oh I,  oh I,   oh I------I, I---I...

[guitar solo, same chords as verse]

Oh I...

I've got bruises on my memories
I've got tearstains on my hands
And in the mirror there's a vision
Of what used to be a man

I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
Time don't matter to me
'Cause I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
And there's no place I wanna be

I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
Time don't matter to me
'Cause I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
And there's no place I wanna be

F   F   G   G   F   F   G   G
[instrumental]
C   Am   C   Am   C   Am   F   G   G
[instrumental; repeat these 9 measures and fade]
