I forgot to point out that Five Miles To Town is a different tune from Five Miles Out Of Town, which is different from Five Miles From Town. In my opinion Five Miles To Town is the best.

Sounds like there's a lot of tunes using the 5 miles/ town title variations. Now, think of the exponential possibillities if you combine them with all the Bonaparte title variations. You could have things like Bonaparte's Retreated Five Miles Out of Town, and Bonaparte's Retreated Five Milkes From Town.

You've got a few more to go--
Five Mile Chase
Five Miles Away
Five Miles of Ellum Wood

And if you want to lengthen the list by making it shorter, you've got:
Two Mile Bridge
A Mile To Ride

You also have Grandpa Jone's song (not a fiddle tune, though) "Eight More Miles to Louisville". John Purk did one called "Six more miles to Tenmile" (Tenmile, TN).
