Far Away Eyes

(Mick Jagger, Keith Richards)
Intro:
F  A#  C F

A#                                                 C
I was driving home early Sunday morning through Bakersfield
F                                             A#
Listening to gospel music on the colored radio station
        C                                     F
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

Chorus:
         A#                C
So if you're down on your luck
        F            A#
And you can't harmonize
       F         C         F
Find a girl with far away
             A#            C
And if you're downright disgusted
         F             A#
And life ain't worth a dime
       F         C        F
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

Chorus:
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
