Friend, since I can’t remember when
Seems like forever we’ve been together
Hey, how long has it been?
Friend, I hope you know that you’re my hero
Never once thought of yourself
Always there to help
Man you’re something else

Chorus 1
In the dark you were the light
When the truth was hard to find
When I needed someone to call me on it
You’d call me on it every time
Through all the good, through all the bad
I knew you always had my back
The best part of being who I am
Is that I get to call you friend

Some got ‘em by the hundreds
But when that thunder comes a-rumbling
They’re off and running
Makes me glad that I got one good friend
God knows you’ve had your moments, too
Sometimes I wonder if you knew
How it meant the world to me
To get to be a friend to you

Chorus 2
And when I stumble, when I slip
You never let me quit
Always knew just what to say
What I needed to hear, when I needed to hear it
Through all the good, through all the bad
I knew you always had my back
The best part of being who I am
Is that I get to call you friend

In the dark you were the light
When the truth was hard to find
When I needed someone to call me on it
You’d call me on it every time
Through all the good, through all the bad
I knew you always had my back
The best part of being who I am
Is that I get to call you friend

Friend, when I look back on this crazy life
At least I know I got one thing right
If all I ever get to do
Is to get to call you my friend, my old friend
