    One More Mile
    Words and music (c) Roger Hammer

    We got the wagon rollin'
    All set out to go
    Forty miles don’t seem like all that far
    Now we’re really rollin'
    See the cornfields on our right
    But then the bus got lost on the way

    With one more mile
    One more mile
    One more mile
    To get to where we’ve been bound

    We’re playin' in the prison—
    Those boys deserve a break—
    Gonna sing our song behind them bars
    Joliet is comin', you can hear
    The Jailhouse Blues
    But then the bus broke down on the way

    With one more mile
    One more mile
    One more mile
    To get to where we’ve been bound

    Now today it’s Lansing
    We’re gonna sing our song
    Two thousand high school girls can’t be all wrong
    Feelin' just all right except for
    The flashin' blue light in my rearview mirror
    And then the bus got busted on the way

    With one more mile...
