Dianne Reeves – Side By Side lyrics

Oh we ain't got a barrel of money
Maybe we're ragged and funny
But you travel along singing a song
Side by side
Oh we don't know what's coming tomorrow
Maybe it's trouble and sorrow
But we'll travel the road sharing our load
Side by side

Through all kinds of weather
What if the sky should fall?
Just as long as we're together
It doesn't matter at all
When they've all had their quarrels and parted
We'll be the same as we started
Just traveling along singing our song
Side by side

(My sentiments exactly)
I know what you're saying yes I know what you're saying
We ain't
What if the sky should fall
Well it doesn't matter at all
(I know what you're saying)
When they've all had their quarrels and they've parted
Yeah but we are the same as we started
(I know that's right)
Traveling along singing our song

Oh we ain't got a barrel of money
And we may be ragged and funny
I know that's right but it makes no difference
Because we'll be traveling along always singing a song
Singing a song
Side by side

Sure feels good to have a friend
(Side by side)
Side by side
Through thick and thin (and thin again)
Ragged and funny
Without the money (without the money)
We still friends (friends till the end)
We still friends (side by side)
We'll be traveling (traveling along)
Spending all the money we ain't got
(Well I know how that is)
We always do that kind of thing anyway
(I got credit card)
Oh traveling along
Oh singing a song
New York, Chicago
New Irelands
Los Angeles
Paris, France
London, England
I got Madrid I got Madrid
