From Hank to Hendrix
I walked these streets with you
Here I am with this old guitar
Doin' what I do

I always expected
That you should see me through
I never believed in much
But I believed in you

Can we get it together
Can we still stand side by side
Can we make it last
Like a musical ride?

From Marilyn to Madonna
I always loved your smile
Now we're headed for the big divorce
California-style

I found myself singin'
Like a long-lost friend
The same thing that makes you live
Can kill you in the end

Can we get it together
Can we still stand side by side
Can we make it last
Like a musical ride?

Sometimes it's distorted
Not clear to you
Sometimes the beauty of love
Just comes ringin' through

New glass in the window
New leaf on the tree
New distance between us
You and me

Can we get it together
Can we still walk side by side
Can we make it last
Like a musical ride?

    General CommentInteresting how one word can change the meaning of the whole song. The original lyrics, last line, new distance between us you and me. In many live versions he sings new closeness between us I think representing his close bond with Peggie. In 2014 the year he filed for divorce he was singing new distance between us. I recently heard a 2016 version were he sang closeness. Maybe they are at a place of acceptance of their post divorce relationship?? Just a thought?
