Kenny Rogers – 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......
