While ridin' on a train goin' west I fell asleep for to take my rest. I dreamed a dream that made me sad Concernin' myself an' the first few friends i had. With half damp eyes i stared to the room Where my friends an' i spent many an afternoon. Where we together weathered many a storm Laughin' an' singin' till the early hours of the morn. By the old wooden stove where our hats was hung Our words was told, our songs was sung Where we longed for nothin' an' were satisfied Jokin' an' talkin' about the world outside. With hungry hearts thru the heat an' cold We never much thought we could get very old We thought we could sit forever in fun An' our chances really was a million to one. As easy it was to tell black from white It was all that easy to tell wrong from right An' our choices they was few so the thoughts never hit That the one road we travelled would ever shatter or split. How many a year has passed an' gone Many a gamble has been lost an' won An' many a road taken by many a first friend An' each one i've never seen again. I wish, i wish, i wish in vain That we could sit simply in that room again Ten thousand dollars at the drop of a hat I'd give it all gladly if our lives could be like that.
