A                                     D
Estimated time of arrival nine thirty AM
     A                                                   D
Been up before the sun and now I'm tired before I even begin
E              F#m                Bm7              E
(Now you're flying) I got so much work in front of me
(E)        F#m                       Bm7            A
(Really flying) It stretches out far as the eye can see
(A)   D
I can see

Spent half my life in airports doing crosswords or attempting to sleep
And when the bar is open then you'll often find I'm warming a seat
(Now you're flying) I never find a place where I can stay
(Really flying) I'd rather be a thousand miles away
A thousand miles away

Working for yourself sometimes ain't all that it's cracked up to be
It can be as lonely at the top as at the bottom of that corporate tree
(Now you're flying) I'm told I'm going places who can say
(Really flying) I might arrive but I'll be gone the very next day
I must be on my way, 
A                 D
a thousand miles away

# Instrumental #
A C#m F#m D (x2)

I promise to myself someday I'll take the time and try to make friends
And of all those opportunities I lost I'm trying to sit on the fence
(Now you're flying) Right now I got no time for yesterday
(E)        F#m                Bm7             A   
(Really flying) Yesterday's a thousand miles away, 
                  D                      A
a thousand miles away (a thousand miles away)
                  D                      E
a thousand miles away (a thousand miles away)
(E)              F#m                    Bm7                E
(Now you're flying) Life was sad then you were trying to say
F#m             Bm7             A    E   A   D            A    D
I guess I was a thousand miles away, hey hey hey, hey hey hey, yeah
(D)               A
A thousand miles away
(A)          D                   A 
Sing it again, a thousand miles away (x3)

# Instrumental #
(A) C#m F#m D

A        C#m    F#m   D  A
Sing it again . . . . .
