F#m                          A                  C#m
Fifteen miles from Memphis I think that was the sign
F#m                                      A              E
I'll be drivin' through tomorrow just to lose a worried mind
F#m                         A                   C#m
If I reach Colorado I won't look back where I've been
Bm                     D               E          D    E
It seems so long since I have seen her where will I begin
F#m                                    A              C#m
Night before last walkin', facin' four rooms worth of floor
F#m                                     A             E
It isn't long since she's been gone but now I need her more
F#m                                   A               C#m
A wise man wrote what isn't there is what you want to find
   Bm               D                E       D       E
So now I'll have to find her so that I won't lose my mind
E                                  D            Bm
I've listened to the radio all the music that is on
                       E           A
But every song they're playin' is about a love that's gone
E                           D              Bm
A hundred thousand miles it seems since yesterday
Bm                  E                   A
It hasn't been that long but fate just lays it on that way

It seems so long since I have seen her where will I begin
