You Can't Make Old Friends Lyrics

by Kenny Rogers

What will I do when you are gone?
Who's gonna tell me the truth?
Who's gonna finish the stories I start,
The way you always do?

When somebody knocks at the door,
Someone new walks in.
I will smile and shake their hands,
but you can't make old friends.

You can't make old friends
Can't make old friends
It was you and me, since way back when.
But you can't make old friends.

How will I sing when you are gone?
Cause it wont sound the same.
Who will join in on those harmony parts,
When I call your name?

You can't make old friends
Can't make old friends
It was you and me, since way back when.
But you can't make old friends.

When Saint Peter opens the gate,
And you come walking in.
I will be there just waiting for you.
Cause you can't make old friends
Cause you can't make old friends.

When I am out on the stage all alone
And I hear the music begin.
We all know the show must go on.
But you can't make old friends.

You can't make old friends.
Can't make old friends
And you and me, will be young again.
You can't make old friends.

You and me, will be together again.
Cause we both know, we will still be old friends.

You can't make old friends
Not the way we have always been.
