Story Behind the Song

A guy pleads with his mother to let his wayward, drug addict brother in the house as hes clearly in need of help. Saying that he can change his ways but has alot to go through to get there.

Lyrics

FOR THE MILES - Richard Murray

Open up your window, open up your door
He's comin' in from the wilderness, he won't hurt you no more
The apple of your eye ain't rotten yet to the core
He ran with the herd and heard them distant cries
Flocked wit the birds but they pecked at his eyes
Just let the boy inside ma, please let him rest awhile

If you fall to the Black Wind, howlin' and hostile
You're in it for the long haul
You're in it for the miles
For the miles, for the miles
You're in it for the long haul
You're in it for the miles

Oh brother oh brother where you been so long
I nursed the heart of a mother heavin' heavy for a son
Wanted and AWOL
Flew the coop just like Lost John

Put him down in the easy chair, wash his face and his neck
Way down in the easy chair till his fever break
I'll put some money in his jacket
Lord I hope it ain't a mistake
He used to take me out drivin' ma, he used to make me smile
He kept me survivin' ma, as he fell to the vial
Just let the boy inside ma, please let him rest a while
Just a while and he'll be long gone like he's outta style

If you fall to the Black Wind, howlin' and hostile
You're in it for the long haul
You're in it for the miles
For the miles, for the miles
You're in it for the long haul
You're in it for the miles
