Old Friend (Seeger Peggy)

Old friend, comrade of mine Once again you're on my mind There's always a place, there's always a time To think of days gone by We spent too long apart And there's so much in my heart I want to say before we say goodbye Your life and mine entwined With the music and the songs Our future was set from the moment that we met We were old long friends The work that quit our play Carried us away then brought us home Brought us home again Love's a game, you never made a claim Or tried to play that game with me That set you apart with your own place in my heart Where you will always be As a woman among men It was hard to find a friend Then you were there and with you I was free We traveled far by scooter then by car From Paris down to Rome In Germany we clowned In Switzerland broke down, we were so young then We parted and we aged But our rainbow didn't fade We remained, we remained old friends Old friend, comrade of mine Once again you're on my mind There's always a place, there's always a time To think of days gone by We spent too long apart And there's so much in my heart I want to say before we say goodbye Now you are gone and like the music And the song you've come in to my mind It's a good we have done, ensures that we live on You will never die Your friends hold you dear We'll keep you with us here So never say, never say goodbye
