I was driving home early Sunday morning
through Bakersfield
listening to Gospel music on the colored radio
station, and the preacher said,
"You know you always have the Lord by your side."
I was so pleased to be informed of this,
that I ran 20 red lights in his honor
Thank you Jesus, thank you Lord

I had an arrangement to meet a girl
but I was kind of late and I thought by the time
I got there she'd be off-she'd be off with
the nearest truck driver she could find:
Much to my surprise, there she was sitting in the
corner (a little bleary eyed-worse for wear and tear)
was the girl with far away eyes

So if you're down on your luck
and you can't harmonize,
Find a girl with far away eyes
And if you're downright disgusted
and life ain't worth a dime,
Get a girl with far away eyes

Well the preacher kept right on saying
that all I had to do was send
Ten dollars to the Church of
the Sacred Bleeding Heart of Jesus
Located somewhere in Los Angeles, California,
And next week they'd say my prayer on the radio
And all my dreams would come true
So I did and next week I got a prayer for the girl,
well you know what kind of eyes she's go...

So if you're down on your luck
I know y'all sympathize,
Find a girl with far away eyes
And if you're downright disgusted
and life ain't worth a dime
Get a girl with far away eyes
So if you're down on your luck
I know y'all sympathize,
Get a girl with far away eyes
