Miles & Miles

In the middle of the night the baby came,
Strong and clean, without a name.
Now life seems like a brand new game,
Let the music start.

A baby boy was born today.
March 15th in far L.A.
Iím in New York but itís okay,
Heís real close to my heart.

The river runs as wide and deep
As the promises we keep.
Miles to go before we sleep,
Miles and Miles and Miles.

The babe brings joy to every face
Warmth to every jaded place.
The world is in a state of grace,
The heavens are all smiles.

So hereís to Rachel, hereís to Jon,
Hereís to the road embarked upon,
God bless the coming of the dawn
And the birth of Mighty Miles.

The river runs as wide and deep
As the promises we keep.
Miles to go before we sleep,
Miles and Miles and Miles.


This song appears on Tom Chapin's The Turning Of The Tide CD.
