Buck Owens – You're A Real Good Friend lyrics

I am ready (I am friend)
When I was broke and blue
I gave advice to you
You're a real good friend
You helped me pay the rent
I charged you ten percent
Oh, you're a real good friend.

When I was sick, ol' scout
I took your girl friend out
On me you can depend
Oh, what a power you were
I even married her
And you're a real good friend.

Have a cigar or two
That's mighty nice of you
You're a real good friend
Don't stand too close to me
'Cause it might blow up
You see, you're a real good friend.

I borrowed your car last night
You brought it back alright
Smashed from end to end (what a wreck)
I may have heard the crash
I filled it up with gas
You're a real good friend.

(I tell you Buddy
That if I need a friend again
Knowing you like I do
I'm gonna buy a dog
Well, knowing you like I do
You'd better buy yourself
A dozen dogs.)

I sang a song you wrote
You sang it note for note
You're a real good friend
I think it will be a hit so
I put my name on it
Oh, you're a real good friend.

Let's sing a sweet duet
We'll make a team
I'll bet and let
Our voices blend
I'll sing the melody
I'll sing the harmony
We're both real good friends
Oh, yeah we're both real good friends...
