    Lyrics

    Oh, the last bus has gone
    Or maybe I'm wrong, it just doesn't exist
    And the words that flew between me and you
    I must be crossed off your list
    So I'm walking the long miles home
    I don't mind losing you

    In fact I feel better each step of the way
    In the dark, I rehearse all the right things to say
    I'll be home, I'll be sober by break of day
    Walking the long miles home

    Not a soul is around
    As I put more ground, between me and you
    And the whole town's asleep
    Or maybe they're deep in the old voulez vous
    So I'm walking the long miles home
    And I don't mind losing you

    Got the moon there for company, each step of the way
    And the rhythm in my shoes keep the blues all away
    When you ride Shanks' Pony, you don't have to pay
    Walking the long miles home

    Oh, the party was grand
    But I hadn't quite planned on staying so long
    And while you accused me
    The hours confused me and my friends had all gone
    So I'm walking the long miles home
    And I don't mind losing you

    Ah, there's nobody out but the cop on the beat
    He's snoring so loud, I don't hear my feet
    I just laugh to myself and move off down the street
    Walking the long miles home
    I'm walking the long miles home
    Oh, walking the long miles home
