To Find A Friend

Tom Petty

Capo up 3


In the middle of his life
 He left his wife
 And ran off to be bad
 Boy, it was sad 

But he bought a new car
 Found a new bar
 And went under another name
 Created a whole new game 

 And the days went by like paper in the wind
 Everything changed, then changed again
 It's hard to find a friend
 It's hard to find a friend         

Meanwhile then
His wife's boyfriend moved in and
Took over the house
Everybody was as quiet as a mouse
And it changed their lives
Changed their plans
Slowly they grew apart
Boy, it woulda broke your heart

And the days went by like paper in the wind
Everything changed, then changed again
It's hard to find a friend
It's hard to find a friend

(honky tonk piano solo)
