How Many Miles to Boston Town?


How many miles to Boston Town?
Four score and ten.
Can I get there by candle light?
Yes, and back again.

Open the gates and let me through.
Toll first you pay.
I have no gold what shall I do?
Turn and go away.

I learned this song while on road trips with my parents. My dad would sing it. I have always thought that he learned it while in the military during WWII.
