Johnny lived next door to me and Paul lived down the block
We'd meet each day at my house, sharp at six o'clock
We'd race our bikes to school and Paul would always win
Johnny said that's 'cause we're nine and Paul had just turned to ten

First day of high school on my way to my first class
Three football players said, "They wouldn't let me pass"
I set my books down and I rolled up my sleeves
And then I noticed there was two boys next to me

It was me and John and Paul
Best friends you ever saw
All for one and one for all
It was me and John and Paul

I wonder why they call it graduation day
Its more like a funeral or youth that's passed away
Paul said, "He's leaving for the army in two weeks"
Johnny said, "Lets go to town and make the memories"

It was me and John and Paul
Best friends you ever saw
All for one and one for all
It was me and John and Paul

Years later, I heard Paul came back from the Gulf War
I flew up to Tennessee to visit him once more
It didn't shock me, none to hear that he'd been brave
He'd lost his own life but another one was saved

I waited by a tree till everyone had left
I went up and said a prayer where my pal slept
And then I heard a voice I hadn't heard in years
I didn't need to turn around I knew just who was there

It was me and John and Paul
Best friends you ever saw
All for one and one for all
It was me and John and Paul

It was me and John and Paul
Best friends you ever saw
All for one and one for all
It was me and John and Paul
