A Friend in Bend

VERSE 1:
I can't get a break --- but - I might get to Bend
That's a town in Oregon --- Where I have friend
She had dreams to find, left her baggage behind - but
I got a friend in Bend -- She told me so

CHORUS:
Oregon loves dreamers, so the slogan goes
With one dream to redeem, so maybe I ought to go
where the air near Crooked River -- can straighten my soul
I got a friend in Bend -- She told me so

VERSE 2: She said come see me in the scenery, On Mount Bachelor to rivers below
You'll flip for the corner breweries while I sip on a local Pino
Mistakes from the past seem small in space this vast
I got a friend in Bend -- She told me so

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE:
She said-- New England gets lazy, South Cali is too crazy
Wichita's plains are all the same - Seattle aint bad if you like rain...

VERSE 3:
Meanwhile I'm holding at the end of my rope -
And she's flying down some mountain bike trail--
Maybe I'll let go, we'll fall to valleys below,
I can learn what she already knows, that dreams never end in Bend

REPEAT CHORUS

Half Chorus:
She said Mistakes from the past, seem small in space this vast
I got a friend in Bend, She told me so
