Far Away Eyes  The Rolling Stones

This is a first attempt so go easy on me.
I'm sure this is not the same key as the recorded version.
But I haven't been able to find this anywhere.
Corrections to please.
Far Away Eyes (M. Jagger/K. Richards)
[G]I was driving home early Sunday morning through Ba[C]kersfield
[G]Listening to gospel music on the colored radio [D]station
And the [G]preacher said, "You know you always ha[C]ve the
[G]Lord by your [D]side"
[G]And I was so pleased to be informed of this that I ran
Twenty re[C]d lights in his honor Thank you[G] Jesus, thank you [D]lord
[G] [C] [G] [D]  
[G]I had an arrangement to meet a girl, and I was kind[C] of late
[G]And I thought by the time I got there she'd[D] be off
[G]She'd be off with the nearest truck driver she co[C]uld find
[G]Much to my surprise, there she was sittin in the [D]corner
[G]A little bleary, worse for wear an[C]d tear
Was a [G]girl with [D]far away [G]eyes

So if you're [C]down on your [D]luck
And you [G]can't harmoni[C]ze (2ND TIME: I KNOW Y[G]OU ALL SYMPA[C]THIZE)
Find a [G]girl with [D]far away E[G]YES
And if you're[C] downright di[D]sgusted
And life [G]ain't worth a [C]dime
Get a g[G]irl with f[D]ar away e[G]yes

[G]Well the preacher kept right on saying that all I had[C] to do was send
[G]Ten dollars to the church of the sacred bleeding [D]heart of Jesus
[G]Located somewhere in Los Angeles,[C] California
[G]And next week they'd say my prayer on [D]the radio
[G]And all my dreams would come [C]true
[G]So I did, the next week, I got a prayer wi[D]th a girl
[G]Well, you know what kind [D]of eyes she g[G]ot
