Friends Gonna Be Strangers  Merle Haggard

Oh the l[F]ove you promised would be mine f[Bb]orever
I w[F]ould have bet my bottom dollar [C]on
Well it s[F]ure turned out to be a short f[Bb]orever
Just o[F]nce I turned my b[C]ack and you were g[F]one


From now [F]on all my friends are gonna be s[Bb]trangers
I'm all t[F]hrough ever trusting an[C]yone
The only t[F]hing I can count on now is my f[Bb]ingers
I was a f[F]ool believing in y[C]ou and now you are g[F]one
It a[F]mazes me not knowing any b[Bb]etter
Than to t[F]hink I had a love that would be t[C]rue
Why I s[F]hould be taken out tarred and f[Bb]eathered
To have l[F]et myself be t[C]aken in by y[F]ou
From now [F]on all my friends are gonna be s[Bb]trangers
I'm all t[F]hrough ever trusting an[C]yone
The only t[F]hing I can count on now is my f[Bb]ingers
I was a f[F]ool believing in y[C]ou and now you are g[F]one
