O who will walk a mile with me
Along life’s merry way?
A comrade blithe and full of glee.
Who dares to laugh out loud and free,
And let his frolic fancy play.
Like a happy child, through the
That fill the field and fringe the
Where he walk a mile with me.
And who will walk a mile with me
Along life’s weary way?
A friend whose heart has eyes to see
The stars shine out o’er the darkening
And the quiet rest at the end o’ the
A friend who knows, and dares to
The brave, sweet words that cheer
Where he walks a mile with me
With such a comrade, such a friend,
I fain would walk till journey’s end,
Through summer shine, winter rain,
Farewell, we shall meet
