      About "3,000 Miles"

      Lyrics for Tracy Chapman - "3,000 Miles"

      Good girls walk fast
      In groups of three
      Fast girls walk slow
      On side streets
      Sometimes the girls who walk alone
      Aren't found for days or weeks

      On the busy boulevards
      Bad boys call you names
      And cruise you hard
      Bullies laugh and grin and beat
      Your soft skin against
      The cold concrete

      [Chorus]
      I'm 3,000 miles away [Repeat: x4]

      Knock you down
      Make you bleed
      Make you cry
      And make you think
      I'll die here soon if I don't leave
      If I don't leave if I don't leave

      This patch of sky and native ground
      Take turns to push and pull you down
      Forget trying to live and be happy
      I'll take safe and terror free

      [Chorus]

      Hit the floor
      Shut off the lights
      As the bullets fly
      Terror rules the dark night
      Dogs hang from the trees

      Training ground for punks and thieves
      Home of poor white retirees
      Who didn't bail
      And couldn't sell
      When color made the grass less green

      [Chorus]

      Apples are filled with razor blades
      But fools and innocents believe
      That love and faith and truth and beauty
      Can make a garden of this human factory

      [Chorus]

      Bad girls run fast
      Leave home alone
      No trace or clue of where they've gone
      Sometimes these girls are never found
      Never found never found

      [Chorus]
