God bless.

I Hope We Walk The Last Mile Together
(as sung by The Singing Cookes)

(Chorus: sung by both)
I hope we walk the last mile together
Hand in hand we can see the promised land
We've been through a lot of bad times; but our love is forever
And I hope we walk the last mile together

(Man)
We made our house a home for our little ones
We've known happiness and we've known some sadness too
(Woman)
We've walked in the sunshine, we've fought the stormy weather
And I hope we walk the last mile together

(Chorus: sung by both)
I hope we walk the last mile together
Hand in hand we can see the promised land
We've been through a lot of bad times; but our love is forever
And I hope we walk the last mile together

(Man)
I remember when you first said, "I love you"
I didn't know that a love could be so strong
(Woman)
And today I find you're still mine so let come and go whatever
And I hope we walk the last mile together

(Chorus: sung by both)
I hope we walk the last mile together
Hand in hand we can see the promised land
We've been through a lot of bad times; but our love is forever
And I hope we walk the last mile together

Tag (sung by both):  And I hope we walk the last mile together

I love this song.  It was our favorite (my husband & I) from the time we first heard you sing it.  Every time we heard it we would cry.He had a stroke in 1990 and was paralized on his right side.  We knew he didn't have long, but "THANK GOD" he lived until 1995.  I quit my job and took care of him for 5 years. His tomb has a couple walking toward the sunset holding hands with the "WE WALKED THE LAST MILE TOGETHER" inscribed underneath.  So this song really has a special meaning to me.  Could you please tell me if you have a soundtrack for it and how I can get it.  You both do a great job.
Thanks, Pat Brigman

I think this song is so pretty.  It makes me cry almost but I think it is a very pretty song.  I was at one of your concerts in Atlanta Ga. when I first heard it.  I told my husband I didnt think I had ever heard a song that touched you like that one did.  Thx Linda Nix
