Gilmore Girls Theme Song

The Gilmore Girls theme song is entitled “Where You Lead,” and was performed by Carole King and her daughter Louise Goffin. “Where You Lead,” sometimes also credited as “Where You Lead (I Will Follow),” was actually sang by Barbara Streisand in the 1970s where it reached the top 40s twice—as “Where You Lead” and as “Sweet Inspiration/Where You Lead” which was a medley.

In 2007, Carole King released a 2-CD album entitled Love Makes the World: Deluxe Edition on her own record company, Rockingdale Records. It included “Where You Lead (I Will Follow)” as a bonus track.

“Where You Lead” is also included in the Gilmore Girls Soundtrack entitled Our Little Corner of the World: Music From Gilmore Girls, which was released in 2002.

Additional

Carole King has a recurring role in Gilmore Girls as Sophie, the owner to the Stars Hollow music store. Gilmore Girls ran for seven seasons from 2000-20007 on The WB and its final season on The CW network.

Lyrics (full song)

Wanting you the way I do
I only want to be with you
And I would go to the ends of the earth
Cause, darling, to me that’s you’re worth

Where you lead, I will follow
Anywhere that you tell me to
If you need, you need me to be with you
I will follow where you lead

If you’re out on the road
Feeling lonely, and so cold
All you have to do is call my name
And I’ll be there in the next train

Where you lead, I will follow
Anywhere that you tell me to
If you need, you need me to be with you
I will follow where you lead

I always wanted a real home with flowers on the window sill
But if you want to live in New York city, honey, you know I will
I never thought I could get satisfaction from just one man
But if anyone can keep me happy, you’re the one who can

And where you lead, I will follow
Anywhere that you tell me to
If you need, you need me to be with you
I will follow where you lead
