Day By Day

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jesse McReynolds

A new lyric by Robert Hunter set to music by Jesse McReynolds. Not to be confused with song of same title played by Jerry Garcia.

Day by day by day by day
Give your love to me
As we continue on our way
To seek our destiny

Hour by hour by year by year
Our love is ever new
Trust in this and never fear
Believe it and be true

The years have come and gone and come
And come and gone again
As each new day we face the world
As lovers and as friends

Day by day by day by day
We sometimes come to grips
Things we did not mean to say
Come pouring from our lips

Careless love will break the trust
Divide and conquer all
Ash to ash and dust to dust
Like barren leaves that fall

Although I fall beside the way
And you must fall there too
Side by side we still may leap
While others pass on through

The years have come and gone and come
And come and gone again
As each new day we face the world
As lovers and as friends

Day by day by day by day
We sometimes come to grips
Things we did not mean to say
Come pouring from our lips

Day by day by day by day
Give your love to me
As we continue on our way
To seek our destiny
To seek our destiny
To seek our destiny
To seek our destiny
To seek our destiny
To seek our destiny
To seek our destiny
To seek our destiny
