He Was a Friend of Mine  Bobby Bare

Banjo Tuned E; Key D
Capo 3, will get you to G tuning
He Was A Friend of Mine
He w[D]as a fri[G]end of m[D]ine, he was a[G] friend of[D] mine
He d[G]ied without a penny he didn't have a[D] dime, he was[G] a
friend of[D] mine
He died ne[G]ath the midnight [D]sun, he died n[G]eath the midnight [D]
His wanderin' [G]days are over his loneliness i[D]s done
Yes he [G]died neath the midnight[D] sun
I have a lot of buddies in my time, but he was the best buddy I ever had
The kind of friend you can lean on and turn to when times 're goin' bad
He could have been a rich man or maybe he could be the President
But he was just a friend of mine the one who had died without a cent
I soughe[D]d away [G]and c[D]ried, I soughe[G]d away and[D] cried
Tears fell[G] like raindrops the night my best[D] friend died
He[D] was a frien[G]d of mi[D]ne, he was [G]a friend of [D]mine
