Follow Me



I had planned another song for this week and will put it up tomorrow.  You may use it any day in the coming week, but I couldn't let the passing of Mary Travers go by without a tribute. We will keep it simple. Pick the Peter Paul and Mary or just Mary Travers song that speaks to you.



Mary Travers: Follow Me

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 all around
Take my hand and say you'll follow me.
It's long by on my mind, you know it's been a long, long time.
I'll try 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 round.
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 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 where 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,
then we will be at home.
Wash the stains of guilt away.

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 around,
Take my hand and I will follow you!

Peter Yarrow and Neil Paul Stookey have written beautiful farewells to Mary Travers. Please take the time to read them on the Official Peter Paul and Mary webpage.

I was so very saddened to hear of her passing this morning. She was a truly lovely lady with the voice of an angel.

You picked a song a wonderful song.
