If I closed my eye-eyes 
It did't hurt quite so ba-a-ad
'Cause tonight I just lo-o-ost 
The best friend I ever ha-a-ad
You were a maveri-ick 
Runnin' all away from New Orlea-eans
We'd tell stories 'round the campfire
Late at night when it was down 
To just you and me-ee-ee

Good friend
Why did you have to go?
Just when I was gettin' to know you
I'll sing this song to show
You were a goo-ood friend
They don't make 'em quite like you
And in my memory you'll always be 
A good good frie-iend to me

You said I got a home, boy-oy
Haven't seen it for so lo-o-ong
Said I'm goin' home, boy-oy
My work is done
I can feel it in my bo-o-ones

Good friend
Why did you have to go?
Just when I was gettin' 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 frie-iend to me

Good-good friend
Why did you have to go?
Just when I was gettin' 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 goo-ood friend to me
And in my memory you'll always be 
A good good frie-iend - to me...
