I looked all around
It was not written down
And so I'll tell you now
I will always love you
My friend

Now I'm not saying we're cut from the same tree
But like two pieces of the gallows
The pillar and the beam
Like two pieces of the gallows
We share a common dream--
To destroy what will harm other men
My friend

I looked all around
It was not written down
So I'll tell you now
I will always love you
My friend

    General CommentIt's funny, reading the lyrics now I see there is no reference to it but I have always assumed this was a song of friendship and thanks to his dog. Must just be the way he sings 'my friend'. Ahh nuance.

    General Commentthepowercut,

    I had never heard it that way, however, I like your take on it and will think of my dog when I hear this song.

    It is "now written down".

    Cheers
