Bb                 C                           F
I was driving home early Sunday morning through Bakersfield
                            F/G Bb/A                  Bb
Listening to gospel music on the colored radio station
                     C
And the preacher said, 
                              F                 F/G Bb/A
"You know you always have the Lord by your side"
            Bb                             C
And I was so pleased to be informed of this 
                            F            F/G Bb/A Bb
That I ran twenty red lights in his honor
          F      C             F F/G Bb/A
Thank you Jesus, thank you Lord
 Bb                                C                       F
I had an arrangement to meet a girl, and I was kind of late
                                     F/G Bb/A
And I thought by the time I got there she'd be off
 Bb                                                  C   F
She'd be off with the nearest truck driver she could find
                   F/G Bb/A           Bb
Much to my surprise, there she was sittin in the corner
 C              F          F/G Bb/A     Bb
A little bleary, worse for wear and tear
       F         C           F F/G Bb/A
Was a girl with far away eyes


CHORUS:
             Bb            C
So if you're down on your luck
       F F/G Bb/A  Bb
And you can't harmonize
       F         C        F F/G Bb/A
Find a girl with far away eyes
              Bb        C
And if you're downright disgusted
   F F/G Bb/A         Bb
And life ain't worth a dime
      F         C             F F/G Bb/A Bb
Get a girl with far away eyes

 Bb                             C   
Well the preacher kept right on saying that 

All I had to do was 
F                             F/G Bb/A                         Bb
Send ten dollars to the church of the sacred bleeding heart of Jesus
                      C
Located somewhere in Los Angeles, California
        F
And next week they'd say my prayer on the radio
           F/G Bb/A Bb        
And all my dreams would come true
           C            F F/G Bb/A Bb               F
So I did, the next week, I got a prayer with a girl
     C                                   F F/G Bb/A Bb 
Well, you know what kind of eyes she got


CHORUS:
             Bb           C
So if you're down on your luck
         F F/G Bb/A   Bb 
I know you all sympathize
        F         C           F F/G Bb/A Bb 
Find a girl with far away eyes
               Bb        C 
And if you're downright disgusted
        F F/G Bb/A     Bb 
And life ain't worth a dime
      F         C            F F/G Bb/A   Bb 
Get a girl with far away eyes
             Bb           C
So if you're down on your luck

About the artist behind Far Away Eyes Chords:

The Rolling Stones are an English band whose music was initially based on rhythm and blues and rock & roll. Formed in London and having their first success in the UK, they subsequently became popular in the US during the "British Invasion" in the early 1960s.[1]

The band formed in 1962 when original leader Brian Jones and pianist Ian Stewart were joined by singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards, whose songwriting partnership later contributed to their taking the leadership role in the group. Bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts completed the early lineup. Ian Stewart was removed from the official lineup in 1963 but continued to work with the band as road manager and keyboardist until his death in 1985.

The band's early recordings were mainly covers of American blues and R&B songs. Their 1965 single "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" established the Rolling Stones as a premier rock and roll act.[2] Starting with their 1966 album Aftermath, the songs of Jagger and Richards, aided by the instrumental experimentation of Jones, expanded an always present stylistic flexibility. Jones died in 1969 shortly after being fired from the band and was replaced by Mick Taylor.[3] Taylor recorded five albums with The Rolling Stones before quitting in 1974. Former Faces guitarist Ronnie Wood stepped in and has been with the band ever since. Wyman left the Rolling Stones in 1993; bassist Darryl Jones, who is not an official band member, has worked with the group since 1994.

The Rolling Stones have released 22 studio albums in the UK (24 in the US), eight concert albums (nine in the US) and numerous compilations;[4][5] they have had 32 UK & US top-10 singles,[6] 43 UK & US top-10 albums between 1964 and 2008,[citation needed] and have sold more than 200 million albums worldwide.[7] 1971's Sticky Fingers began a string of eight consecutive studio albums at number one in the United States. In 1989 the Rolling Stones were inducted into the American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2004 they were ranked number 4 in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[8] They are also ranked as the number 2 artists of all time on Acclaimedmusic.net.[9] Their latest studio album, A Bigger Bang, was released in 2005 and followed by the highest-grossing tour in history, which lasted into late summer 2007. During the 1969 American tour, tour manager Sam Cutler introduced them as "The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World",[10] a title which has remained. Their image of unkempt and surly youth is one that many musicians still emulate.[10]
