"Where You Lead (Gilmore Girls version)" as written by Toni Stern and Carole King....
Wanting you the way I do
I only want to be with you
And I would go
To the ends of the earth
'Cause darling
To me that's what you're worth

Where you lead, I will follow
Anywhere that you tell me to
If you need, you need me to be with you
I will follow where you lead

If you're out on the road
Feeling lonely, and so cold
All you have to do is call my name
And I'll be there on the next train

Where you lead, I will follow
Anywhere that you tell me to
If you need, you need me to be with you
I will follow where you lead

I always wanted a real home with flowers on the window sill
But if you want to live in New York City, honey, you know I will
I never thought I could get satisfaction from just one man
But if anyone can keep me happy, you're the one who can

Where you lead, I will follow
Anywhere that you tell me to
If you need, you need me to be with you
I will follow, oh

Where you lead, I will follow
Anywhere, anywhere that you tell me to
If you need, you need me to be with you
I will follow where you lead, oh baby ooo

I'm gonna follow where you lead, oh baby yeah
I'm gonna follow where you lead, ooo sugar uh huh, I'm gonna follow where you lead, oh baby

    General CommentI decided to post this separately because this version is different from the original one that Carole King wrote and sung.
    An interesting fact: Originally, when Amy Sherman (creator of GG) asked Carole King to re-record the song for the show, Carole King refused...but when Amy Sherman told her what the show was all about (the close relationship between a teenage daughter and not-so-young mom), Carole King liked the idea and decided to re-record the song, partly because Carole has a close relationship with her daughter, Louise Goffin. So apperently, she changed the lyrics to the song, and recorded it with her daughter, specially for the show.

    Some things that are different: The original song was about a woman following her guy wherever he went. Now, the meaning of the song is about the tight (mother-daughter-friends) relationship two people can have, how they have the 'It's us against the world" attitude, which is really amazing.
    Changed lyrics:
    "Loving you the way I do, I only wanna be with you" --> "Loving you the way I do, I know we're gonna make it through"

    Also the last verse "You never know how it's all gonna turn out, But that's okay. Just as long as we're together, We can find a way" was never in the original song.
    I love the end of the song, where Carole and Lori start 'echoing' eachother singing "I will follow"-"Where you lead"..."I will follow"-Where you lead." I think this adds to the real mother-daughter closeness in the song's meaning.

    I like it. I like the positive message this song brings and, of course, how it adds to the show's message and feel.

    P.S. I found some of this information on TWOP forums about Gilmore Girls...so it's not all my knowledge.
