My Old Friend Lyrics

by Tim McGraw

My old friend, I recall
The times we had hanging on my wall
I wouldn't trade them for gold

'Cause they laugh and they cry me
Somehow sanctify me
They're woven in the stories
I have told and tell again

My old friend, I apologize
For the years that have passed
Since the last time you and I
Dusted off those memories

But the running and the races
The people and the places
There's always somewhere else I had to be
Time gets thin, my old friend

Don't know why, don't know why
Don't know why, don't know why

My old friend, this song's for you
'Cause a few simple verses
Was the least that I could do

To tell the world that you were here
'Cause the love and the laughter
Will live on long after
All of the sadness and the tears
We'll meet again, my old friend

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye

My old friend, my old friend
Goodbye, goodbye
