May 23

Sixteen years ago today was one of the happiest days of my life. That was the day that Gene and I got married. It was just an all-around great day. Gene was just so sweet and calm that day. He kept singing that Taj Mahal song "Farther On Down the Road" all day. Actually, he'd been singing it all week. Here's one version of it:

Further on down the road baby, you'll accompany me.
Further on down the road baby, you'll accompany me.

When I think back, your love was like the sun
And I don't remember no cold days darlin, I just remember the warm warm one.

Further on down the road baby, you will accompany me.
Oh if we fools in life, mmmm woman than a happy fool I'd rather be.

Oh baby I'll be glad to learn from you,
And darlin' I know you will be glad to learn from me.
And if we get down and things get sad, We can cheer up each other,
and grin Cuz things just ain't that bad.

If we fools in life, than a happy fool I would rather be.
Day by day, just one step, just one step at a time.
Cuz woman you have given me so much,
Just to ease this stubborn little achin' heart of mine.

I don't care where they came from,
and I don't care what they might say,
Woman you've been lovin' in my corner, each and every day.
Day by day, that's the magical kind cuz it's flowin all of the time.

Further on down the road, baby,
you will accompany me (Ohhhh, That's what I'm hopin)
Further on down the road, baby,
you will accompany me (Oh baby, can't you hear me playin)

When I look back,
your love was like the sun,
And I don't remember any cold days,
I just remember the warm warm fun.

Further on down the road, baby,
you will accompany me.

Mmmm Babe, ohhhh babe, ohhhh babe, aaaahhhhhhh
ohhhh babe, mmmmmmm babe, ohhhh babe, ohhhh babe,
mmmmmmm babe, oh darlin, ohh babe, ohhhh darlin,
ohhhhhh babe, ohhhh darlin.
