A Thousand Miles

A Thousand Miles was written by Vanessa Carlton, an American singer-song writer in 2002. My piano students enjoyed playing this song, from the easy version to advanced. Let's take a look at some arrangements to the song, A Thousand Miles.


1. Chords by Joan’s Genius 2002



INTRO: C F G // C F G //  Am G // Am G
(this pattern corresponds to the piano riff she plays throughout the song)


VERSE 1:
C                 G  
Making my way downtown
        F           G                       C F G C F G
Walking fast, faces pass and I'm home bound
C               G 
Staring blankly ahead
               F              G               Am
Just making my way, making my way through the crowd

BRIDGE:
Am  F  G
         And I need you
C   F  G 
         And I miss you
Am  F  G           F
         And now I wonder
   Am      G      Am     F
If I could fall into the sky
   Am        G          Am   F
Do you think time would pass me by
      Am       G          F
Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
           C    F   G           C F G C F G Am G Am G 
If I could just see you tonight


VERSE 1:
     C                 G
It's always times like these
                F                G           C     F  G  C F G 
When I think of you and I wonder if you ever think of me
      C               G
Cause everything's so wrong
              F           G                Am
And I don't belong living in your precious memories
(repeat Bridge)


CODA: 
   Am    G
And I, I don't want to let you know
Am   F
I, I drown in your memory
Am   G
I, I don't want to let this go
Am   F
I, I don't....
(repeat Verse 1 & Bridge)


OUTRO:
   Am      G      Am     F
If I could fall into the sky
   Am        G          A    F
Do you think time would pass me by
      Am       G          F
Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
           C    F   G                
If I could just see you 
           C    F    G                 
If I could just hold you
  C
Tonight
