If You Were the Friend (Kenny Rogers)

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
