  • Lyrics:

    With My Friends
    Music by Peter Link
    Lyrics by Ragan Courtney and Peter Link

    In an hour or two I will shoulder my load
    And head out on that lonely road again
    But just for the moment it’s cozy and warm
    There ain’t nobody here except my friends

    With my friends
    There’s nothing left to prove
    There’s nothing that’s forbidden or taboo
    With my friends
    There’s no way I have to be
    I like them and they seem quite fond of me

    Nothin’ to hide
    The heart swings wide
    You’re lookin’ deep in someone’s eyes
    You fall inside

    One of ya’ smiles
    Maybe him maybe you
    One of ya’ speaks
    Ya’ don’t care who
    There’s no damn difference between you two
    An’ it feels that close with all of you

    With my friends
    With my friends
    With my friends
    With my friends

    With my friends
    Seems like my friends since time began
    The Lord don’t give much more than this to man
    With my friends
    There’s nothin’ to explain
    Though kings and kingdoms crumble
    Friends remain

    No I never asked to be born in a world
    Where men are out to murder other men
    Now I found me a place so peaceful and safe
    Where everybody’s everybody’s friend

    Now all of my dreams
    An’ all my pride
    An’ all them plans jus’ up an’ died
    They’re all just as gone as yesterday

    Now I got you
    An’ you got me
    An’ what more would we ever need
    To bear these trials an’ be on our way
    Yes it feels so close with all of you

    With my friends
    With my friends
    With my friends
    I ain’t goin’ walkin’ no lonely road
    I’ll be with my friends
    With my friends
    With my friends

  • Title: With My Friends - Reprise

  • Lyrics:

    With My Friends - Reprise
    Music by Peter Link
    Lyrics by Ragan Courtney and Peter Link

    We can walk nine miles
    In jus’ three little hours
    By then the stars will laugh an’ close the day
    An’ maybe then
    A good ol’ wind will come
    An’ pick us up an’ carry us away

    With my friends
    We’ll sail among the clouds
    An’ feel the breezes blowin’ through our hair
    With my friends
    We’ll travel ‘cross the sky
    An’ be in California by ‘n by

    With my friends
    With my friends. C’mon people!

    With my friends
    With my friends. I know it’s getting’ hot, but we can make it!

    With my friends. That’s jus’ beautiful!
    With my friends. Whoo boy, it’s a hot one!

    With my friends. C’mon people, stay together!
    With my friends. Oh Lord, I donno …

  • Lyrics:

    500 Miles
    Music by Peter Link
    Lyrics by Ragan Courtney and Peter Link

    I donno
    I donno
    I jus’ don’t know how we’re ever gonna make it
    It’s too long a road
    For one little baby. (It ain’t right!)
    An’ a woman with child
    Oh Lord, help us now! We really need ya’ ta’ be payin’ attention!
    I donno
    No I donno
    I jus’ don’t know how we’re ever gonna make it
    We’re plum outta miracles
    An’ I still don’t know what good I am
    Me an’ them
    Got a long way ta’ go
    Ha! Goin’ no place
    Goin’ no place
    Goin’ no place
    Now what’s the point of it all ‘a goin’ no place
    For 500 miles
    500 miles. (It’s a long way ta’ California!)
    500 miles
    For 500 miles

    I donno
    No I donno
    I jus’ don’t know If this little one can take it
    With me walkin’ this road
    I carry this burden
    That I never wished for
    But I took the job
    So I’m good fer it, but it sure is a lotta walkin’!
    So I donno
    No I donno
    I jus’ don’t know If I got the stuff ta’ make it
    An’ carry this little one
    It’s a huge responsibility
    An’ a cross ta’ bear
    Much bigger than me
    I’m jus’ a back country girl
    Wantin’ nothin’
    Nearly nothin’
    So what’s the point of it all ‘a pushin’ onward
    For 500 miles

    We don’t stand a ghost of a chance
    500 miles
    But what else can we do
    500 miles
    When there’s nothing left to turn to
    500 miles
    But keep on pressin’ on
    500 miles
    Through all our wearied trials
    For 500 miles
    An’ trek those last 500 miles

    I donno
    No I donno
    I jus’ don’t know if I can keep on fakin’ it
    I’ve run outta promises
    They all look to me like
    I know what I’m doin’!
    But I ain’t got a clue
    Yet I’m sloggin’ on
    Yes, I’m sloggin’ on
    I jus’ don’t know if I can keep on fakin’ it
    This leadin’ the way
    Ta’ some flimflam bullshit paradise
    That no one but a fool could believe in
    It’s wishful thinkin’
    It’s jus’ a pipe dream
    We’re goin’ no place
    An’ what’s the point of it all goin’ no place
    For 500 miles

    We don’t stand a ghost of a chance
    500 miles
    But what else can we do
    500 miles
    When there’s nothing left to turn to
    500 miles
    But keep on pressin’ on
    500 miles
    Through all our wearied trials
    For 500 miles
    An’ trek those last 500 miles
