Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Friend (for Dave)  Russell Lawson

[G]Times the past paints in [Am7]shades of blue
[Em]close my eyes and [Am7]I think of you
[Em7]brighter visions, the [F#m7aug5]colors blend
[Am7]hours spent with a [Csus2]long lost [D]friend
[G]seems like time tries to [Am7]close the door
[Em]and a lost friend will [Am7]be no more
[Em7]still I long for the [F#m7aug5]early days
[Am7]dreams of fame and the [Csus2]songs we [D]played

[G]we all need a [C]friend to [C/B]care
[Am]shine your light so I'll [D]know you're [D/C]there
[Bm]tell me if you'll be [Em]back again
[Am7]I want you to [Csus2]be [D]my [G]friend

these last year's we've grown apart
new fortunes now fill our hearts
things we shared may no longer be
still important to you and me
I thought good friends always last
don't leave themselves in the past
still, it seems like I could be wrong
so I write and I sing this song


time's the victor and all thing pass
deepest hurts all will heal at last
love hurts as you might expect
life deals from a crooked deck
I will never understand
why love's like this man to man
these phrases are all I find
let your friendship pass down the line
