Lyrics

99 Miles to Philly

 

Intro  A A7 D A E A

 

A

Walking down the streets of Brooklyn

 A7                                    D

Just me and a bottle of gin

                                                      A

Somewhere on Atlantic Avenue

                                            E

I don’t know where I’ve been

A

Walking down the streets of Brooklyn

 A7                                           D

Searchin’ for a way back home

                                          A

What am I gonna do today

                      E                       A

Cuz I’m doing it all alone

 

A

Walking down the streets of Brooklyn

A7                                        D

Somebody show me the way

                                            A

I don’t know this town at all

                                          E

I’ve been lost all day

A

Walking down the streets of Brooklyn

A7                               D

Looking to hop a train

                                                A   

Gotta get myself moving along

                  E      A

Before I go insane

 

(Chorus)

D                      A

99 miles to Philly

D                                  A

I wanna get home today

D                     A

99 miles, 99 miles

E                      A

99 miles away

 

D                         A

99 miles to Philly

D                                         A

That’s the only thing I know

D                     A

99 miles, 99 miles

E                  A

99 miles to go

 

A A7 D A  E A A7 D A E A

Instrumental (first verse chords)

 

 

 

A

Walking down the streets of Brooklyn

A7                                                                                     D

Don’t know where I’m supposed to go

                                                      A                  

Everyone’s moving around me fast

                                                                             E

They’re coming at me high and low

A         

Walking down the streets of Brooklyn

A7                              D

Can’t seem to find my way

                                               A

The sun is finally going down

                        E              A

It’s been a real long day

 

A

Walking down the streets of Brooklyn

A7                                                    D

Just me and a bottle of gin

                                                      A

Somewhere on Atlantic Avenue

                                                           E

I don’t know where I’ve been

A

Walking down the streets of Brooklyn

A7                                                      D

Searching for a way back home

                                          A

What am I gonna do today

                             E       A

Cuz I doing it all alone

 

 

(Chorus)

D                                 A

99 miles to Philly

D                                        A

I wanna get home today

 

D                     A

99 miles, 99 miles

E                      A

99 miles away

 

D                         A

99 miles to Philly

D                                                      A

That’s the only thing I know

D                     A

99 miles, 99 miles

E                  A

99 miles to go

 

D                     A

99 miles, 99 miles

E                        A

99 miles to go
