  1. My old friend Johnny – keep hitting em hard and telling stories, and smiling – every thunder storm I hear, I will know you are out on the range and dusting em
    I see you standing in the doorway
    With that look that’s in your eyes

    So I still walk on through the night and through the rain
    I would give it all just to be with you again
    That’s the way life goes like a whisper in the wind
    I would give it all just to be with you again

    It’a a lonely road for my heart is still in chains
    But I live my life just to be with you again
    Your old friend, Katie Burnham
