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

Instrumental (first verse)
A A7 D A E A A7 D A E A



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
Just looking to get 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
