That's "Richard Digance", "My Friend Upon The Road".
A quick Gooogle brings up several album tracks, but no lyrics

Words as promised


MY FRIEND UPON THE ROAD
Richard Digance

I have a friend to share my dreaming,
A guitar to play my songs to,
And a fishing friend to sit where rivers flowed.
There were others gave me money
When days weren't quite this sunny,
And there's you, my friend, upon the road.
For a lonely mile is longer to me
Than the shore to which you're rowed.
Many men have written songs
For friends before, but this belongs
To you, my friend upon the road.

The stars on the trapeze
Twinkle high on midnight seas.
There are sights not many see for long.
Nature offers us her ballet,
Not just shadows in the alley.
She provides the dancers. we provide the songs.
And she keeps us high when others fall low.
Mother Nature takes my load.
For your good-to-know-you attitude,
I save you both my gratitude,
Good lady and my friend upon the road.

When we're old and reminiscing
There'll be one friend I was kissing
And another who made journey's end on time.
When we think back on the winnings,
And the losing and the singing,
It was all of us who helped my words to rhyme.
I may be the weaver and the singer of the songs,
Helped by two, few people see.
So I think my song's a maybe
From the street that is my lady
And my special friend upon the road and me.

Cheers Ross - I am rarely let off the lead to go so far afield but you never know I might just find the map with the escape tunnel one day - if you ever make it up to Saddleworth look me up at the festival - I tend to do the kids music stuff for them

Oh, I'm resurrecting a thread after 13 years!

But for the sake of accuracy (and thank for posting the lyrics, RaWR I couldn't catch some of them), I think the ending is:

So I think my songs are maybe
From us three, that is my lady,
And my special friend upon the road and me.

HUMOUR, is very much a matter of taste, I think Brimstone and Foreman were far superior IN that genre,
