This is a first attempt so go easy on me.
I’m sure this is not the same key as the recorded version.
But I haven’t been able to find this anywhere.

Far Away Eyes (M. Jagger/K. 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 (2ND TIME: 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
Well the preacher kept right on saying that all I had to do was send
Ten 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
