The song "Mile After Mile" was written at the request Tommy Graham of Ramelton, Ireland, on August 15, 2000.
Music: The Old Rambler

Mile After Mile


As I walk along the walls of stone
I am reminded once again, that Iím all alone
When the day is done and light begins to fail
My memories linger and my mind begins to wail

chorus
The only thing that keeps me going mile after mile
Is I know that some day soon, very soon,
I will see your face and smile
It keeps me going mile after mile

The night passes slowly as blackness gives way to day
This is how itís been, since you went away
I cry myself to sleep some nights listening to the rain
But the howling wind brings a special kind of pain

chorus
The only thing that keeps me going mile after mile
Is I know that some day soon, very soon,
I will see your face and smile
It keeps me going mile after mile

Come back again before Iíve hardened my heart
Please come home again before Iíve fallen apart
There is no reason to leave these days, there is no reason to go
But Iíll wait for you until the winds forget to blow

chorus
The only thing that keeps me going mile after mile
Is I know that some day soon, very soon,
I will see your face and smile
It keeps me going mile after mile

Iíll wait for you until the rain no longer falls
Iíll wait for you until the fuchsias have hidden all the walls
As I walk along the wall of stones
I can feel the weariness gathering in my bones

chorus
The only thing that keeps me going mile after mile
Is I know that some day soon, very soon,
I will see your face and smile
It keeps me going mile after mile
