With You Once Again

Here I am, with you once again
here i am, back among my friends.
with my eyes wide open, my stride unbroken,
here I am, with you all again.

I was born a son of the middle west,.
where we keep our cards close to the vest
our hands held hard across our chest…
And hard times just a test.

Here I am with you once again
here i am, back among my friends
with my eyes wide open, my stride unbroken
here I am, with you once again.

In the sawgrass out near pt. au gres,
in my mind’s eye where I die
From the islands to the Georgian Bay,
I see the rockets of July…

Here I am with you once again
here i am, back among my friends
with the blue runnin’ water, and the working sons and daughters…
here I am, back in Michigan again.
