A Million Miles Away

Rory Gallagher


This hotel bar is full of people
The piano man is really laying it down
The old bartender is a high as a steeple
So why tonight should I wear a frown?
(Yes, I'm a)

Million miles away
I'm a million miles away
I'm sailing like a driftwood on a windy bay

Why ask how I feel
How does it look to you?
I feel hook, line and sinker
I lost my captain and my crew
I'm standing on the landing
There's no one there but me
That's where you'll find me
Looking out on the deep blue sea

This hotel bar is full of people
The piano man is really laying it down
The old bartender is a high as steeple
So why tonight should I wear a frown?

The joint is jumping all around me
And my mood is really not in style
Right now the blues want to surround me
But I'll break out after a while

Well, I'm a million miles away
I'm a million miles away
I'm sailing like a driftwood on a windy bay

Why ask how I feel, well
How does it look to you?
I feel hook line and sinker
I lost my captain and my crew
I'm standing on the landing
And there's no one there but me
That's where you'll find me
Looking out on the deep blue see

There's a song on the lips of everybody
There's a smile all around the room
There's conversation overflowing
So why must I sit here in the gloom?

This hotel bar lost all its people
The piano man has caught the last bus home
The old bartender is asleep in the corner
So why must I still be here
I don't know

Well, I'm a million miles away
I'm a million miles away
I'm sailing like a driftwood on a windy bay
