Kenny Rogers Farther I Go Lyrics


I took a boat, I took a plane
Halfway around the world on a train
New York to Orleans, Japan to Tibet
But the farther I go, the closer you get
And I can’t get you out of my mind
All these years to forget, all these miles and yet
The farther I go, the closer you get.

I took some dreams, I kicked up some dust
I damned your name, I cried and I cursed
I ran to the ends of the earth to forget
But the farther I go, the closer you get.

I found a friend, I took her home
I took her upstairs, disconnected the phone
We got warmer and warmer
then blazing hot
But the farther we went, the closer you got
I can't even make love anymore.

All these years to forget …
