ode for billy dean lyrics – hot tuna

i used to think, wherever i wandered
i never would ever, ever come to woe
but that’s all gone now an’ i don’t worry
if the future for me and my friends now
i just don’t know

’cause livin’ is with us until it’s gone
once it has left us, said, the believers don’t know
but i’m still alive now, an’ i don’t worry
when i go down, don’t let me go slow

if love was a word, that no one could follow
it was a message that was written in air
i’d rather be lost now than followin’ nothing
then feelin’ an’ thinkin’, unable to care

i used to think, wherever i wandered
i never would ever, ever come to woe
but that’s all gone now an’ i don’t worry
if the future for me and my friends now
i just don’t know
