Vernon fell off his bike today
And I can't believe that a year's gone by
I remember us drinking his warm beer
And how he was always teasing me
Nothing special, he was a friend

Jimmy called and said he was in traction
He was hurt pretty bad he said
Maybe we'd better go and see him
I said I didn't want to see him that way
Nothing special, he was a friend

We'd sit at the shop and he'd play these records
I'd never heard before
I bought a bike and we were going to go riding
As soon as I could learn
Nothing special, he was a friend

A couple people told me that Vernon was dead
I mean "passed away"
Our fiend is "no longer with us"
See you at the wake
Nothing special, he was a friend

I ride by your house sometimes
I always say hello
I don't sit at the shop anymore
And I've never been to a funeral
Nothing special, he was a friend
