Far Away Eyes  The Rolling Stones

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
