Just to be the man who walks a thousand miles
             B       E
To fall down at your door

E
When I'm working, yes I know I'm gonna be
          A                B                E
I'm gonna be the man who's working hard for you
E
And when the money, comes in for the work I do
     A                 B           E
I'll pass almost every penny on to you
E
When I come home(When I come home), well I know I'm gonna be
          A              B                  E
I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you
E
And if I grow , well I know I'm gonna be
          A                B                E

Ok resume strumming

(Chorous)

fa la la (fa la la)
fa la la (fa la la)

fa la la (fa la la)
fa la la (fa la la)

fa la la (fa la la)
fa la la (fa la la)

Da Da Da Dun Diddle Un Diddle Un Diddle Uh Da Da

fa la la (fa la la)
fa la la (fa la la)

(Chorus)

End on a strum of E

This was my first chord i recorded because i figured it would be easy enough to write a 
accurate one, i checked it over again and again and it all fits. if any one is 
in playing the power chords as used in the song the chords are still A B E but 
they are played like so
      A   B  E
-|-------------------|
-|-------------------|
-|-----------9-------|
-|----7---9--9-------|
-|----7---9--7-------|
-|----5---7----------|

i personaly prefer chords but its all preferances.

i hope you all enjoy 500 miles its fun to sind along or try to get your friends and 
tosing along while you just strum away.

please leave comments or suggestions this is my first contribution to ultimate guitar. 
you.
