about

Sherry and I have been together for many years now. It hasn't always been easy.

lyrics

Going the Distance

We rolled the Toyota
Out on I-35
When the dust finally settled
Never felt so alive
We drove on in a rental
300 miles the next day
We had friends that were waiting
And songs yet to play
And we’re going the distance
Yeah, we’re going the distance

From Baltimore to Austin
California to Maine
Through roadblocks and detours
Through wind and through rain
We’re going the distance
Right up to the end
Yeah, we’re going the distance
I’m right beside you my friend

‘Cause we never stopped trying
And we never quit
I guess that’s the secret
No matter how hard it gets

Your daddy was hoping
To chase me away
After all of this time
Looks like I’m here to stay
Yeah the years have rolled by
And we’ve had sorrows to mend
But we’re going the distance
I’m right beside you my friend
And we’re going the distance
Right up to the end
Yeah, we’re going the distance
I’m right beside you my friend
We’re going the distance
