This was a very emotional event for me:
I was watching the movie about Glen Campbell's last tour and his very public struggle with Alzheimer's disease. About half way through the film I was overcome with sadness. I had to pause the movie. I wrote this song barely able to see what I was writing, my eyes so blurred by tears. After I wrote the first two verses and the chorus, I returned to finish the movie.

I dedicate this song to everyone who has suffered or is suffering with Alzheimer's disease.

This song was written and played with my beautiful Ebi Ukulele. (http://www.ebiukuleles.com)

Lyrics

Down That Road

when I look back I remember
and I laugh and I cry
all the times we had together
holding hands we would fly

take me down that road
through the valleys, ‘round the bends
take me down that road again
where it begins
where it ends

if I had to do it over
I would do it all again
I would walk through fields of clover
with you my friend

take me down that road
through the valleys, ‘round the bends
take me down that road again
where it begins
where it ends

the journey has been rocky
the road I made it mine
love is all that matters
until the end of time

take me down that road
through the valleys, ‘round the bends
take me down that road again
where it begins
where it ends

take me down that road
through the valleys, ‘round the bends
take me down that road again
where it begins
where it ends
