You Were A Good Friend Lyrics
If I closed my eyes it didn´t hurt quite so bad
´cos tonight I´ve just lost the best friend I´ve ever had
You were a maverick running all away from New Orleans
We´d tell stories ´round the campfire late at night
When it was down to just you and me.
Good friend, why did you have to go?
Just when I was getting to know you
I´ll sing this song to show
You were a good friend
They don´t make ´em quite like you
And in my memory
You´ll always be a good good friend to me.
You said I got a home, boy
Haven´t seen it for so long
Said I´m going home, boy
My work is done
I can feel it in my bones.
Good friend, why did you ......
