You Were a Good Friend  Kenny Rogers

By Kenny Rogers
rmofle at
[G]If I closed my eyes[D] it doesn’t hurt quite so [G]bad[D]
´Cause to[G]night I just lost[D] the best friend I [G]ever had[D]
[G]You were a maverick,[C] running all away from [G]New Orleans
We’d tell [G]stories ´round the campfire late at [D]night, when it was down to just [G]you and me[D]
[Em]Good [C]friend, why [D]did you have to [G]go
[Em]Just when I was getting to [C]know you, I’ll [D]sing this [D/C]song to [D/B]show [D/A]
You were a [Em]good [C]friend, they don’t [D]make ‘em quite like [G]you
And in my [C]memory, you’ll [C/B]always be a [D]good, good friend to [G]me
You said I got a home, boy, haven’t seen it for so long
Said I’m going home, boy, mMy work is done, I can feel it in my bones
And in my memory, you’ll always be a good, good friend to me
