Lyrics

<p><strong>99 Miles to Philly</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Walking down the streets of Brooklyn</p>
<p>Just me and a bottle of gin</p>
<p>Somewhere on Atlantic Avenue</p>
<p>I don&rsquo;t know where I&rsquo;ve been</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Walking down the streets of Brooklyn</p>
<p>&nbsp;Just looking to get back home</p>
<p>What am I gonna do today</p>
<p>Cuz I&rsquo;m doing it all alone</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Walking down the streets of Brooklyn</p>
<p>Somebody show me the way</p>
<p>I don&rsquo;t know this town at all</p>
<p>I&rsquo;ve been lost all day</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Walking down the streets of Brooklyn</p>
<p>Looking to hop a train</p>
<p>Gotta get myself moving along</p>
<p>Before I go insane</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p><em><strong>Chorus</strong></em></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>99 miles to Philly</strong></p>
<p><strong>I wanna get home today</strong></p>
<p><strong>99 miles, 99 miles</strong></p>
<p><strong>99 miles away</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>99 miles to Philly &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;</strong></p>
<p><strong>That&rsquo;s the only thing I know</strong></p>
<p><strong>99 miles, 99 miles</strong></p>
<p><strong>99 miles to go</strong></p>
<p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;Walking down the streets of Brooklyn</p>
<p>Don&rsquo;t know where I&rsquo;m supposed to go</p>
<p>Everyone&rsquo;s moving around me fast</p>
<p>They&rsquo;re coming at me high and low</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>Walking down the streets of Brooklyn</p>
<p>Looking to find my way</p>
<p>The sun is finally going down</p>
<p>It&rsquo;s been a real long day</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Walking down the streets of Brooklyn</p>
<p>Just me and a bottle of gin</p>
<p>Somewhere on Atlantic Avenue</p>
<p>I don&rsquo;t know where I&rsquo;ve been</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Walking down the streets of Brooklyn</p>
<p>Just looking to get back home</p>
<p>What am I gonna do today</p>
<p>Cuz I doing it all alone</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><em><strong>Chorus</strong></em></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>99 miles to Philly</strong></p>
<p><strong>I wanna get home today</strong></p>
<p><strong>99 miles, 99 miles</strong></p>
<p><strong>99 miles away</strong></p>
<p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p>
<p><strong>99 miles to Philly</strong></p>
<p><strong>That&rsquo;s the only thing I know</strong></p>
<p><strong>99 miles, 99 miles</strong></p>
<p><strong>99 miles to go</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>&nbsp;99 miles, 99 miles</strong></p>
<p><strong>99 miles to go</strong></p>
