The heart touching song 10,000 miles, also known as Fare Thee Well, is an 18th century English folk ballad featured in the movie Fly Away Home. It is performed by Mary Chapin Carpenter and the composer is Mark Isham. It is the mournful dialogue of a couple dealing with separation from a long journey.... "If I had a friend all on this earth, you've been a friend to me."

Fare thee well
My own true love
Farewell for a while
I'm going away
But I'll be back
Though I go 10,000 miles

10,000 miles
My own true love
10,000 miles or more
The rocks may melt
And the seas may burn
If I should not return

Oh don't you see
That lonesome dove
Sitting on an ivy tree
She's weeping for
Her own true love
As I shall weep for mine

Oh come ye back
My own true love
And stay a while with me
If I had a friend
All on this earth
You've been a friend to me
