  • It's by far the hardest thing I've ever done
    To be so in love with you and so alone

    Follow me where I go what I do and who I know
    Make it part of you to be a part of me
    Follow me up and down all the way and all around
    Take my hand and say you'll follow me

    It's long been on my mind
    You know it's been a long, long time
    I've tried to find the way that I can make you understand
    The way I feel about you and just how much I need you
    To be there where I can talk to you
    When there's no one else around

    Follow me where I go what I do and who I know
    Make it part of you to be a part of me
    Follow me up and down all the way and all around
    Take my hand and say you'll follow me

    You see I'd like to share my life with you
    And show you things I've seen
    Places that I'm going to places where I've been
    To have you there beside me and never be alone
    And all the time that you're with me
    We will be at home

    Follow me where I go what I do and who I know
    Make it part of you to be a part of me
    Follow me up and down all the way
    Take my hand and I will follow you Writer/s: John Denver
