If I closed my eyes it didnĀ“t hurt quite so bad
Ā“cos tonight IĀ“ve just lost the best friend IĀ“ve ever had
You were a maverick running all away from New Orleans
WeĀ“d tell stories Ā“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
IĀ“ll sing this song to show
You were a good friend
They donĀ“t make Ā“em quite like you
And in my memory
YouĀ“ll always be a good good friend to me.
You said I got a home, boy
HavenĀ“t seen it for so long
Said IĀ“m going home, boy
My work is done
I can feel it in my bones.
