“Oh, we ain’t got a barrel of money
Maybe we’re ragged and funny
But we’ll travel along, singin’ a song
Side by side
Don’t know what’s comin’ tomorrow
Maybe it’s trouble and sorrow
But we’ll travel the road, sharin’ our load
Side by side
Through all kinds of weather
What if the sky should fall
Just as long as we’re together
It doesn’t matter at all
When they’ve all had their quarrels and parted
We’ll be the same as we started
Just travelin’ along, singin’ our song
Side by side

See that sun in the mornin’
Peekin’ over the hill
I’ll bet you sure, it always has
And it always will
Well, that’s how I feel about someone
And somebody feels about me
We’re sure in love with each other
And that’s the way it’s gonna be

Oh, we ain’t got a barrel of money
Maybe we’re ragged and funny
But we’ll travel along, singin’ a song
Side by side
Don’t know what’s comin’ tomorrow
Maybe it’s trouble and sorrow
But we’ll travel the road, sharin’ our load
Side by side
Through all kinds of weather
What if the sky should fall
Just as long as we’re together
It doesn’t matter at all
When they’ve all had their quarrels and parted
We’ll be the same as we started
Just travelin’ along, singin’ our song
Side by side“

Harry M. Woods, 1927

Thank you, Mish, for sharing this song! This song was written in 1927 and Wiki has audio of Nick Lucas performing it that year here: Side by Side, 1927. Many artists have covered this song including Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. I checked out several. This is my favorite cover so far: Kay Star & Margaret Whiting | Side By Side.

​This week and next, the theme is “love and music.” If you have a favorite song that features any kind of love, like a parent’s love for their child, the love between siblings, the love of a pet, the generations-deep love of your birthplace, or the love of anyone or anything that brings you joy that is celebrated in a favorite song, please leave a comment below. 

I would love to hear your favorite love song!  The songs for #loveandmusic have a corresponding playlist on YouTube which I’ll add daily: “I feel the world and want to help heal the world.” 

Nothing heals the world like love unless it’s music.

💕🎶
