(Robert Johnson)

When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side [2x]
Give her all of your spare time, try to love and treat her right

I mistreated my baby, but I can't see no reason why [2x]
Anytime I think about it, I just wring my hands and cry

Wonder, could I bear apologize, or would she sympathize with me
Mmm, or would she sympathize with me
She's a brownskin woman, just as sweet as a girlfriend can be

Mmm, baby I may be right or wrong
Baby, it your opinion, I may be right or wrong
Watch your close friend, baby, then you enemies can't do you no harm

When you got a good friend that will stay right by your side [2x]
Give her all of your spare time, love and treat her right

    I have been married 46 years. The most important part of a marrige is friendship. Just as you have buddies or girlfriends you like to hang out with. When you love to hang out with your wife?you get it! It doesn't get any better then that.
