zipper song: friend worth knowing, etc

The Hog Island Song Book by Trudy Phillips says it's a song by Bill Staines:

Down the Road by Bill Staines

I do believe that there will be waiting for me somewhere down the road
Another song worth singing, worth singing somewhere down the road
Down the road, down the road, waiting for me somewhere down the road
Though the way seems hard and slow
Remember where you go
There's a song worth singing down the road

Friend worth knowing

Day worth living

It is by Bill Staines, and was sung by the late, great Johnny Collins on his album, "Pedlar of Songs." At singarounds you can add verses (pint worth drinking, sight worth seeing etc.) until it seems that you are losing people!

Bazza, I can't find an online recording, but here is a full transcription of the lyrics.

DOWN THE ROAD
(Bill Staines)

I do believe there will be
Waiting for me somewhere down the road
Another song that's worth the singing,
That's worth the singing, somewhere down the road

Down the road, down the road,
Another song worth singing down the road
If the way seems long and slow, remember when you go,
There's a song worth singing down the road

I do believe there will be
Waiting for me somewhere down the road
Another friend that's worth the knowing,
That's worth the knowing, somewhere down the road

Down the road, down the road,
Another friend worth knowing down the road
If the way seems long and slow, remember when you go,
There's a friend worth knowing down the road

I do believe there will be
Waiting for me somewhere down the road
Another day that's worth the living,
That's worth the living, somewhere down the road

Down the road, down the road,
Another day worth living down the road
If the way seems long and slow, remember when you go,
There's a day worth living down the road
If the way seems long and slow, remember when you go,
There's a song worth singing,
A friend worth knowing,
There's a day worth living down the road

I heard it first done by the Hard Travelers. Doesn't seem to be available on Youtube. Written by Bill, of course.

You can hear the version by Johnny Collins here, but I couldn't find the Bill Staines one.
