Many A Mile To Go

This song is by Van Dyke Parks and appears on the album Jump! (1984).


Many a mile to go and promise to keep and I'm falling asleep.
I don't wanna go to sleep. I don't wanna.
To sleep. I don't wnna
I'm dreamin' this dream and it not very clear
The reason I'm there or why am I here.
I'm thinkin' I'm sinkin' and I wanna know
When we're not here oh where do we go?
Do not forsake me my dear!
I let you go out when the coast become clear
To the wild blue and beyond I'd tell you more if I'd been
Where no one been before
Do not forsake me my dear!
I won't forsake you my son!
Be by your side that day my race had been run Till then it's all up to you
You take a part of my heart as you start to slip through!
We find that faraway shore
We have to say "Goodbye" nevermore
We leave behind our certain-for-sure
To me it seem like dreaming.
Mine is but to do or die
And never want for the reason why
We just set sail up into the sky
To me it seems like flying.
Why oh why the sky.
Why oh why is it blue and why am I me tell me why are you you.
Why are you-hoo?
Like why is there right and why is there wrong
And why does the weak go along with the strong.
Gotta git along. And why is night. It feel like a fright
Oh and where is the light that wuz burnin' so bright
Burnin' so bright
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Ah-
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Ah-
Do not forsake me my dear!
