I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) Lyrics - The Proclaimers

Review The Song (49)



When I wake up, well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you.
When I go out, yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you.

If I get drunk, well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who gets drunk next to you.
And if I haver, yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's haverin' to you.

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door

When I'm workin', yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's workin' hard for you.
And when the money comes in for the work I'll do
I'll pass almost every penny on to you.

When I come home (when I come home), oh I know I'm gonna be 'I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you.
And if I grow old, well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's growing old with you.

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door

Da da-da da (da da-da da)
Da da-da da (da da-da da)

When I'm lonely, well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man whose lonely without you.
And when I'm dreamin', well I know I'm gonna dream
I'm gonna dream about the times when I'm with you.

When I go out (when I go out), well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you.
And when I come home (when I come home), yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you.
I'm gonna be the man who's comin' home to you.

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door

Da da-da da (da da-da da)
Da da-da da (da da-da da)

And I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door

So darned catchy! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/30/13

I first heard this song at a theatre performance of Gruesome Playground Injuries (brilliant use of music to score the time shifts, btw) and I just couldn't stop humming it all the way home! Even now it's my 'get up and get going' song and people just stare when I start dancing around and singing the words XD

Someday, I want a guy to propose to me with this song. Really <3

Correction to these lyrics | Reviewer: KC | 10/23/13

Great song, great job on the lyrics. One correction though: in the line
"I'm gonna be the man whose lonely without you."
The word 'Whose' is wrong. It should be 'Who's' - as in "who is".

It's so inspirational yet romantic in a cheery way hah poetry always seems to seize the hearts of people in a charmed principle hah this song gives the emotion of love from an emotional state to actions that show what relationships should be this day in age Is so redundent FYI I'm 9 years old with much kcutzpah lol fail.. Pfft XD I have no desire for loving a girl I only love mommy :P

I heard this song in the "Burke and Hare" movie. At the very instant I heard the song I just fell in love with it and searched for more info about it. The lyrics are so inspiriational that I'm even learning it now and I hope to be that man to walk a thousand and more for my deary one day.

500 to the 'Heart of Scotland' | Reviewer: Steve Allen | 12/26/12

I am a true scot. Having said that, if I had my way, I would change our national song from 'Oh Flower of Scotland' to the rousing, foot stomping '500 Miles, by 'The Proclaimers'. Now,there's an anthem to be proud of!!,

it bofere and I'll say it again this could be my absolute favorite song of all time! I can't wait to hear it live and I HOPE that they play it when I see them in Tulsa in October. On the wedding front .We just had a bride, Meghan, whose first dance was DMB's Oh and who named all of her tables at her July wedding (Sheraton Cuyahoga Falls, OH) after venues that her and hubby had seen the DMB at. Red Rocks, Verizon Amp., Blossom, ETC. Under each table name was a brief paragrah about the size of the venue and a few songs that were played that night. It was the coolest thing we have ever done!!!!July 29, 2009 7:09 am

I wish! | Reviewer: snueps | 12/30/11

I found her | Reviewer: Danny Quest | 4/10/11

I liked it the first time I heard it. And I still like it now.
Happy to say I found the one to walk a thousand miles for... and I'll gladly walk another for her. One day, I'll sing this song to her...

COOL SONG | Reviewer: Robko | 3/22/11

Hello.
First time I heard it was in England, where I was for holliday. It was in pub where was live music, and now I heard it in Germany(!!) in pub with live music too.. I was searching for it and now, I have got it! Very good song...

True Story | Reviewer: Eva Noah | 7/26/10

My father who is now 77 walked from one area to another area when he was 18. He walked alone with a snow knife and enough caribou meat to last him how ever long it took him to walk. For this reason we live in the Center of Canada, and not in the northwestern region of Nunavut. He was looking for a better place and found it.

Feels Like Mine | Reviewer: Yalin | 2/20/10

Well I first heard this song in the TV show "How I Met Your Mother". I immidiately loved it and started searching for it. When I found it I listened to it again and again and actually I'm still listening to it :) Singing it with the Scottish accent, jumping at my seat and dancing is kinda fun :D I hope I'll find the girl to make me feel love like The Proclaimers tell us :)
