ROLLING STONES - Far Away Eyes Lyrics

(m. jagger/k. richards)I was driving home early sunday morning through bakersfieldListening to gospel music on the colored radio stationAnd the preacher said, you know you always have theLord by your sideAnd I was so pleased to be informed of this that I ranTwenty red lights in his honorThank you jesus, thank you lordI had an arrangement to meet a girl, and I was kind of lateAnd I thought by the time I got there she'd be offShe'd be off with the nearest truck driver she could findMuch to my surprise, there she was sittin in the cornerA little bleary, worse for wear and tearWas a girl with far away eyesSo if you're down on your luckAnd you can't harmonizeFind a girl with far awayAnd if you're downright disgustedAnd life ain't worth a dimeGet a girl with far away eyesWell the preacher kept right on saying that all I had to do was sendTen dollars to the church of the sacred bleeding heart of jesusLocated somewhere in los angeles, californiaAnd next week they'd say my prayer on the radioAnd all my dreams would come trueSo I did, the next week, I got a prayer with a girlWell, you know what kind of eyes she gotSo if you're down on your luckI know you all sympathizeFind a girl with far away eyesAnd if you're downright disgustedAnd life ain't worth a dimeGet a girl with far away eyes
