When I wake up yeah 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 yes 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 havering to you

But I’m gonna walk 500 miles
And I’m gonna walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walks a 1000 miles
To fall down at your door

When I’m working yes I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s working 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 yeah 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’m gonna walk 500 miles
And I’m gonna walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walks a 1000 miles
To fall down at your door

When I’m lonely well I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man whose lonely without you
When I’m dreaming well I know I’m gonna dream
I’m gonna dream about the time when I’m with you.

When I go out yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who goes along with you
and when I come home yes i know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s coming home with you
I’m gonna be the man who’s coming home with you

But I’m gonna walk 500 miles
And I’m gonna walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walks a 1000 miles
To fall down at your door
