I travelled a thousand miles
to meet the girl next door,
I waited patiently
a year or more.


But as the girl of my dreams
looked at me,
her face I couldn’t even see.

I must’ve been blind drunk and stupid Cupid
to ever miss a chance like that.
Must’ve been walkin’ around this dirty town
blind as a bat.
I guess that I blew it,
yes, I threw it all away.
What I would give to have that chance today.

I travelled a thousand miles
to make a dream come true,
I waited patiently
a year or two.
But as the love of my life
passed me by,
for once I didn’t even try.

I must’ve been blind drunk and stupid Cupid
to ever miss a chance like that.
Must’ve been walkin’ around this dirty town
blind as a bat.
I guess that I blew it,
yes, I threw it all away.
What I would give to have that chance today.
