It's been so long
Since I've seen you
My old friend

I remember your eyes
How they would shine
Those crazy times
When you and I
Fooled around

I remember the time
You fell in love
Didn't know how
To say goodbye
To your baby

And you made me take
The goodbye note
Around
And that little girl
She cried and cried
And she asked me if
I knew exactly why
You'd gone

I told a like
I said you felt
She'd be much happier
With someone else
But then you'd do
The same for me

Remember when
We stayed out late
We'd cause a fight
But we would never stay
To the end

I loved you then
I love you still
You know I think
I always will
You're a good friend
A good friend
To me

Who was it
Who came for me when I was
Stranded in the bad man's land
Who was it
Who put up bail for me when I was
So desperate to get out
Who believed with me
That I was not guilty
Who gave me beer when I was thirsty
And who gave me twenty-five dollars to hold
