40 Miles Guitar Chords Troy Cassar-Daley

[Intro]
C Dm F C

C
Every time I make this trip,
F G C
40 miles is all it takes.

Along the way I see my life,
F G C
Every triumph and mistake.

There’s the tree where we carved a heart,
F G C
And signed our names to show our love.

Now the memories come flooding back,
F G C
With all the things we were dreaming of.

F C
40 miles won’t take a day,
Am G F
But its a long, long way.
C
Its not far as the crow flies,
Dm F C Dm F C
My whole life in 40 miles.

I remember one dark day,
F G C
Limping home all stoney broke.

The golden boy all ragged and torn,
F G C
The longest miles that I ever drove.

Later on when the years had turned,
F G C
Coming home with a heart full of pride.

Telling all the sweet old stories,
F G C
To the woman soon to be my bride.

F C
40 miles won’t take a day,
Am G F
But its a long, long way.
C
Its not far as the crow flies,
Dm F C Dm F C
My whole life in 40 miles.

There’s the road to the old stone church,
F G C
Where we layed grandma down to rest.

I remember what she said:
F G C
I’m ready child, now please don’t fret.

Now I just passed the second creek,
F G C
Another circle has come around.

It won’t be long till I see the light,
F G C
40 miles behind me now.

F C
40 miles won’t take a day,
Am G F
But its a long, long way.
C
Its not far as the crow flies,
Dm F C
My whole life in 40 miles.
Dm F C
My whole life in 40 miles.
