Marvin Gaye – Abraham, Martin And John lyrics

Has anyone here seen my old friend Abraham?
Can you tell me whe he's gone?
Oh, he freed a lot of people
But it seems the good die young, yeah.
I just looked around and he was gone
.

Hmmm

Has anyone here seen my old friend John?
Can you tell me whe he's gone?
You know, he freed a lot of people
But it seems the good die young, yeah.
I just looked around and he was gone
.

Oh yeah

Has anyone here seen my old friend Martin?
Can you tell me whe he's gone?
He freed a lot of people
But it seems the good die young, yeah.
I just looked around and he was gone
.

[Insrumental]

Has anyone here seen my friend Bobby?
Can you tell me whe he's gone?
You know, he freed a lot of people
But the good, they die young, yeah
.
I just looked around and he was gone.

Oh, I just looked around and they were gone, oh yes
