SYDNEY

Written: North of Durango CO, circa 1965

 

One day Bob Amerman, Dwight Babcock and Knees went fishing up in Colorado. Knees had his guitar and wanted to write a song at the camp while the other two fished, and when Bob said heíd been wanting to write a love song for Sydney Little, his girlfriend, Knees volunteered to write the song for him. Unfortunately, the chords were too hard for Bob to play -- he was just beginning the guitar -- and he never sang it for Sydney. Bob died of cancer a year later.

 

Oh Sydney,

Our love has lasted,

So letís both look past it

And see what tomorrow will bring.

 

And donít you see that Sydney,

Our love will grow stronger

Each day will grow longer

Than the day I gave you my ring.

 

The dreams that we shared will all come true

So never be scared long as Iím here with you.

And donít you see that, Sydney,

The world is our highway

And when things turn out my way

You and I will have our day.
