Far Away Eyes

By Jagger/Richards

I was driving home early sunday morning through bakersfield

Listening to gospel music on the colored radio station

And the preacher said "you know you always have the

Lord by your side"

 

 

And i was so pleased to be informed of this that I ran

Twenty red lights in his honor

Thank you Jesus, thank you lord

 

 

I had an arrangement to meet a girl, and I was kind of late

And I thought by the time i got there she'd be off, she'd be

Off with the nearest truck driver she could find

Much to my surprise, there she was sittin in the corner

A little bleary, worse for wear and tear

Was a girl with far away eyes

 

 

So if you're down on your luck

And you can't harmonize

Find a girl with far away

And if you're downright disgusted

And life ain't worth a dime

Get a girl with far away eyes

 

 

Well the preacher kept right on saying that all I had to do was send

10 dollars to the church of the sacred bleeding heart of Jesus,

Located somewhere in Los Angeles, California

And next week they'd say my prayer on the radio and all my

Dreams would come true

So I did, the next week, I got a prayer with a girl

Well, you know what kind of eyes she got

 

 

So if you're down on your luck

I know you all sympathize

Find a girl with far away eyes

And if you're downright disgusted

And life ain't worth a dime

Get a girl with far away eyes
