New Orleans could not find the groove In Nashville the grass did not seem blue And Denver did not seem more than three feet high The Empire did not scrape the sky And the White House seemed gray When you're 3000 miles away
In Boston there was no common ground And Long Island did not make a sound Niagara rises and Old Faithful falls At Camden they did not play ball But who cares if they play When you're 3000 miles away
CHORUS Your absence changes me and everything seems so wrong But with no sense of irony I write you this sweet love song today 3000 miles away
Chicago could not muster a breeze And there was a blizzard in The Keys New England's charms were wasted on these eyes I fear it came as no surprise Because it's just another day When you're 3000 miles away
Distance is my tutor So well he's teaching me In the education of appreciation And I got my PH.D.
In Georgia you're all that's on my mind In Cape Cod the ocean was untied And the Motor City threw a rod And now I'm praying to you God Take me home to that face 3000 miles away
