Lyrics
I went down to the valley
just to find out who I am, lord
found home in the valley
I got to get myself back together again now
I looked all around me and everything was still the same
and people you can't climb that mountain
carrying a ball and chain, no
cause it takes all the love that you can give
to get to the other side
makes all the love that you can live
so satisfied
so satisfied

come come coming together
that's the only way we can go
children we better
turn around take a look where you been before now

come come come on people
don't you know that we're all the same
you know you ain't gonna climb that mountain
carrying a ball and chain

cause it takes all the love that you can give
to get to the other side
makes all the love that you can live
so satisfied
so satisfied

takes all the love that you can give
to get to the other side
makes all the love that you can live
so satisfied
so satisfied
