I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) Lyrics

by Steven Curtis Chapman

When I wake up, yeah, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you
And when I go out, yeah, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you

And when I'm lonely well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's lonely without you, yeah
And when I'm dreaming well I know I'm gonna dream
I'm gonna dream about the time when I'm with you

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked
A thousand miles to fall down at your door

When I'm working yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's working hard for you
And when the money comes in for the work I'll do
I'll pass almost every penny on to you

And when I come home, yeah, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you
And if I grow old well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's growing old with you

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked
A thousand miles to fall down at your door

Yeah when I'm dreaming well I know I'm gonna dream
I'm gonna dream about the time when I'm with you
And when I wake up, yeah, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you

And when I go out, yeah, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you
And when I come home yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you
I'm gonna be the man who's coming home to you

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked
A thousand miles to fall down at your door

And I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked
A thousand miles to fall down at your door
I'll be at your door
