Can you recall, dear comrade,
when we tramped God's land together,
And we sang the old, old Earth-song,
for our youth was very sweet;
When we drank and fought and lusted,
as we mocked at tie and tether,
Along the road to Anywhere, the wide world at our feet --


Along the road to Anywhere, when each day had its story;
When time was yet our vassal, and life's jest was still unstale;
When peace unfathomed filled our hearts
as, bathed in amber glory,
Along the road to Anywhere we watched the sunsets pale?


Alas! ths, swinging heel and toe,
We tramped the road to Anywhere, the magic road to Anywhere,
The tragic road to Anywhere, such dear, dim years ago.
