Ten Thousand Miles

I’ve always loved this song since first hearing it sung by the great Nic Jones – it’s just one of those classic love songs that will never date. The arrangement I’ve done has some very long sustained notes which I  think makes it a great song for learning to really listen and focus on tuning with other singers.

Example of lyrics

Fare thee well, my own true love
Farewell for a while
I’m going away, but I’ll be back
Though I go ten thousand miles, though I go ten thousand miles
