To All My Friends in Far-Flung Places
Dave Van Ronk

Only the two first stanzas






To all my friends in far-flung places
When again I’ll see your faces
No one knows, no one can say
And none can name the happy day
When we embrace to greet once more
To take up where we were before
The miles and times that come between
The different vibes that intervene
Like shadows in a dream, now I’m with you

And all of you who took me in
Who shared the thick and stretched the thin
Who gave me comfort on the run
Who saved my life, who made it fun
Wherever you may be tonight
I hope this finds your burdens light
Your purpose high, your spirit strong
I hope that you have got along
My song was lost and gone, if it not for you

In strangers’ shapes I seem to trace
The lines of old familiar faces
I left my heart so many places
I scarcely know which way is home
And parting is my constant sorrow
Here today and gone tomorrow
I’d like to wake up in some town
And find that you were all around me
And all of us were settled down
And I’d come home

To all my friends in far-flung places
May I stay in your good graces
Hold me in your memory
And when you do not hear from me
Don’t think that out of sight is out of mind

For though our lives may lead apart
Still you are always in my heart
The love we share is all I know
Gives me grace to go on now
The love we share is all I know
Gives me grace to go on down the road
That leads me on to meet
My fate to taste the bittersweet
Of welcome always waiting for me
Somewhere, always somewhere down the line
