When You Got A Good Friend (take 2) Lyrics

by Robert Johnson

Mmm, when you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
Give her all of your spare time, try to love and treat her right

I mistreated my baby, I can't see no reason why
I mistreated my baby, I can't see no reason why
Everytime I thinks about it, I just wring my hands and cry

Wonder could I bear apologize, or would she sympathize with me
Mmmmmmmmmm, or would she sympathize with me
She's a brown skin woman, just as sweet as a girl friend can be

I love my baby, but I can't make that ag'ee
I love that woman, but what can we can't agree
I really love that woman, nnn, wonder why we can't agree

It's your opinion, friend-girl, I may be right or wrong
It's yo'y opinion friend-girl, I may be right or wrong
But when you watch your close friend, baby,
then your enemies can't do you no harm

When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
Give her all of your spare time, try to love and treat her right
