Note: The chord pattern is the same throughout the song, but for the second D, I slide the previous C
      up 2 frets to and let the G and High E strings ring making it a Dadd4add9. A regular D works, 
      but the Dadd4add9 makes it sound a bit more haunting

[Intro]

Em D C D
Em D C D


[Verse 1]

            Em        D             C              D
There was a man named Jim who walked everywhere he went
               Em                  D                        C    D 
Cause he could never quite seem to keep his mind on the road
            Em         D             C             D
One day it occurred to Jim that he'd taken a wrong turn
             Em            D                    C    D
Cause he was standing in a place he didn't know


[Verse 2]

    Em          D                   C               D
Jim spun on his heels thinking he's backtrack for a while
    Em                D                  C       D
But before he knew it the sun was sinking
        Em               D  
And the landscape in the dark
         C               D              Em              D
Well, it could have been New Zealand or New York or New Mexico
        C                    D
So what else is new, Jim was thinking


[Verse 3]

                  Em            D         C           D
Because see for a while now Jim felt like things were changing for him
         Em          D                           C               D
Like the skin of the earth was stretching or the continents were adrift
           Em             D               C        D
Jim didn't know if it was so or if it was just him although
      Em                  D                   C       D
He suspected that it was a bit of both he was dealing with


[Chorus]

      Em   D        C       D
And I feel like I'm tripping
      Em      D     C        D
And I feel my steps slipping today
         Em            D           C              D
Feel the winds of time whipping my coat around my legs
      Em   D       C       D     Em   
And I feel about a million miles away
D  C  D Em D C D


[Verse 4]

     Em          D               C               D
Dawn broke, Jim awoke, he'd been sleeping on his feet
       Em          D                   C   D
It was morning now but a densely foggy day
     Em               D       C                   D
Jim decided he'd just sit and wait for the fog to lift
            Em        D       C        D 
But when it didn't he started up again anyway


[Verse 5]

                      Em                D          C    
Man, this is like the blind leading the blind, Jim thought
           D             Em             D            C  D
About that time down the road came this seeing-eye dog
       Em                 D             C                   D  
It was well-fed and had a collar but no matter how loud Jim hollered
                 Em            D                     C   D
There wasn't any answer, so he walked on through the fog


[Verse 6]

             Em             D                C             D
Alright, I'm lost, Jim said aloud although a bit begrudgingly
                  Em        D             C         D
Like things might change in light of this confession
            Em         D                      C        D
He was both amazed and sour that at this late date and hour
         Em           D       C        D
He might find himself in this situation


[Chorus]

      Em   D        C       D
And I feel like I'm tripping
      Em      D     C        D
And I feel my steps slipping today
         Em            D           C              D
Feel the winds of time whipping my coat around my legs
      Em   D       C       D     Em   
And I feel about a million miles away
D  C  D Em D C D


[Verse 7]

      Em                  D                C                 D
After walking through the haze for another night and another day
    Em        D               C    D
Jim seemed to simply cease to exist
        Em               D              C             D
All his panic, hope, and thoughts broke up into small dots
      Em           D                 C    D
As he gave himself away into the mist

        Em             D             C                D
Back in town where Jim lived, sad to say he was never missed
        Em             D                  C         D
And his name was never spoken again, it's awful but true
        Em       D                   C                   D
Out my window at night I think I see Jim standing in the half-light
       Em        D                 C      D
Saying hurry up, suffering's got a job to do


[Chorus]

      Em   D        C       D
And I feel like I'm tripping
      Em      D     C        D
And I feel my steps slipping today
         Em            D           C              D
Feel the winds of time whipping my coat around my legs
      Em   D       C       D     Em   
And I feel about a million miles away


[Outro]

Em        D         
A million miles (a million miles)... 
  C        D
a million miles (a million miles)..... 
Em     D          C             D
I feel like I'm a million miles away.. [repeat and fade]
