Tom T. Hall – Sad Song For My Friend lyrics

You know I love my music it's really all I got
I never really cared that much if I was cold or hot
Now I got a job to do I don't want to begin I've gotta write a sad song for my friend
He was not like me no he tried a lot but just like me he cried a lot
Oh I never thought I'd have to cause that ain't what I'm in
I've gotta write a sad song for my friend
[ harmonica ]
She was quite a lady and he was quite a guy
They were quite a couple it was quite a cry
They used to sit and laugh a lot cause I like to pick and grin
They helped me write a sad song for my friend
He was not like me...
I don't wanna sing no sad songs for my friend
