UP AROUND THE BEND
(John C. Fogerty)
Creedence Clearwater Revival - 1970
There's a place up ahead and I'm going just as fast as my feet can fly
Come away, come away if you're going, leave the sinking ship behind.
Come on the rising wind, we're going up around the bend.
Bring a song and a smile for the banjo, better get while the getting is good,
Hitch a ride to the end of the highway where the neons turn to wood.
You can ponder perpetual motion, fix your mind on a crystal day,
Always time for a good conversation, there's an ear for what you say.
Catch a ride to the end of the highway and we'll meet by the big red tree,
There's a place up ahead and I'm going, come along, come along with me.
Do, do, doo, do...
