If I closed my eyes
It didn't hurt quite so bad
'Cause 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 have to go?
Just when I was getting to know you
I'll sing this song to show
You were a good friend
