The Content of the Song
“We Go Together” is the title track of their album. The song did not enter the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
Moreover, Norro Wilson, Danny Walls, and Sammy Lyons wrote the song. The song is about two people in love and comparing their love with all things that go together.
“We go together like the storm and rain just like the fire that needs the flame
Just like the picture needs the frame we go together
We go together like the moon and June just like the fork needs the spoon
Just like the song that needs the tune we go together.”
