A Thousand Miles to Omaha

(Doc Hodges)
May 10, 2011

It’s a thousand miles to Omaha

But your mem’ry is right here with me

It’s a thousand miles to Omaha

But your mem’ry is right here with me

 

I can see the stars in your eyes

Smell the perfume in your hair

But it’s only a fading feeling

Of how much you used to care

 

It’s a thousand miles to Omaha

But your mem’ry is right here with me

It’s a thousand miles to Omaha

But your mem’ry is right here with me

 

I know that I’d never be

The man you’d want me to

But that doesn’t mean

That I don’t still love you

 

It’s a thousand miles to Omaha

But your mem’ry is right here with me

It’s a thousand miles to Omaha

But your mem’ry is right here with me

 

My road has been so long

And my hands are too rough

To hold on to one so tender

And embrace your loving touch

 

It’s a thousand miles to Omaha

But your mem’ry is right here with me

It’s a thousand miles to Omaha

But your mem’ry is right here with me

 

It’s not your fault I’m this way

I can’t start over again

And I know because we were lovers

We can never just be friends

 

It’s a thousand miles to Omaha

But your mem’ry is right here with me

It’s a thousand miles to Omaha

But your mem’ry is right here with me
