Thread Name: Lyr Req: 6000 Lonely Miles (from the Fureys)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Six Thousand Lonely Miles (The Fureys)
I at first ignored Menzze's link because he/she called it "6000 Miles" rather than "6000 Lonely Miles." I figured it was another one of those red herrings you see so often at Mudcat: someone asks for "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" and someone else says "Do you mean this one?" and then they post the lyrics to "Black Velvet Band." That kind of stuff drives me nuts.

But it wasn't the case this time. Menzze actually found a recording by Paddie Bell (once a member of The Corries) of 6000 LONELY MILES on her album "Make Me Want to Stay," 1997. It has a sound sample, but I found it hard to understand:Maybe someone more familiar with her accent can decipher it better than I.
