Has anybody here
Seen my old friend Abraham
Can you tell me, where he's gone
He freed a lotta people
But the good die young
I just looked around
And he's gone

Has anybody here
Seen my old friend John
Can you tell me, where he's gone
He freed a lotta people
But the good die young
I just looked around
And he's gone

Has anybody here
Seen my old friend Martin
Can you tell me, where he's gone
He freed a lotta people
But it seems the good die young
I just looked around
And he's gone

Didn't you love the things they stood for
Didn't they try to find some good for you and me
Yes we'll be free
Someday soon it's gonna be one day

Has anybody here
Seen my old friend Bobby
Can you tell me, where he's gone?
I thought I saw him walkin' up over the hill
With Abraham, Martin And John
I just looked around and they are gone
