We ought walk together and talk together and get quiet all together,
yet we never know just what it is that's layin' up around the bend.
So we walk together and talk together and get quiet together,
so that we can sure remember just where it might be that we prob'ly been.
Then we walk away and part our ways awhile and quit us each to his own,
and we see what it is that was calling to us from up around the bend.
And we walk together and talk together and get loud with each other,
and again we find just what it is that we thought we could never have lost.
So life is that we can walk and talk and laugh and sit a spell together,
until we're pert sure we know just what it is that lies up around the bend.
Around the bend, farther along, down the road apiece, we will find that joy
we look for when like Johnny we plant a seed and whistle to the big end.
So talk together and walk together and get quiet a bit together
and soon you and I can see the smile is just up on both ends of the bend.
