Oh, he was a friend of mine, he was a friend of mine
Never had no money to pay for his fine
He was a friend of mine

He never done no wrong, he never done no wrong
Thousand miles from home, he never hurt no one
He was a friend of mine

And he died on the road, oh, he died on the road
And he never had no money for to pay for sufficient clothes
And he was, he was a friend of mine

Oh, I stole, I stole away and cried
I stole, I stole away and cried
Never had no money and I can't be satisfied, ooh
He was a friend of mine

He was, he was a friend of mine, he was, he was a friend of mine
And when I hear his name you know, I just can't keep from cryin' and
He was, he was a friend of mine, he was, he was a friend of mine
