I will answer the wind
I will leave with the time
I'll be out on the road
Every chance I can ride

No matter how far
No matter how free
I'll be along
If you'll wait for me

There'll be times when I'll rise
There'll be times when I'll fall
There'll be times when it's best
To say nothing at all

Knowing you're right
Letting it be
I'll be around,
If you'll wait for me
If you'll wait for me

And I'll fight for the right to go over that hill
If it only means something to me
I will not be persuaded, I won't be still
I'll find a way to be free

In the cool of the night
In the heat of the day
If you're ever in doubt
I'll be on my way

Straight to your side
I guarantee
I'll be around
If you'll wait for me
If you'll wait for me

Wait for me...
I'll be along
Wait for me...
Oh if you'll wait for me
Wait for me...

    General CommentIt's so nice to be hearing new Bob stuff on the radio. Well, new to me, anyway. My fondness for this song can't really be separated from my affection for his (IMO) greatest music, such an integral part of growing up in the midwest.

    Mainstreet, Like A Rock, Night Moves, Against The Wind, Turn The Page, Ramblin' Gamblin' Man - he had a way of painting such vivid images - nothing fancy, he just said it, and it felt gritty and it felt real.
