Laughing boy, guitar Johnny's playing the blues so low
Laughing boy, don't it make you want to cry

You know, I can't imagine you were the magic boy so long ago
Your life and dreams are broken
You hate the world but you can't live alone
Ain't that fine?

I'm your friend that knows you and I'd like to tell you
That I think your laugh's a lie

Laughing boy, that's you layin' in the meadow
Laughing boy, memories ought to make you cry

Don't let your mind surrender, 'cause I can't imagine days without you
No one wants to be without you
You'll find a way to help you play on
You won't pass the time alone

I'm your friend that knows you and I'd like to tell you
That I think your laugh's a lie

Don't let your mind surrender, 'cause I can't imagine days without you
No one wants to be without you
You'll find a way to help you play on
You won't pass the time alone

I'm your friend that knows you and I'd like to tell you
That I think your laugh's a lie
