If I closed my eyes it didn't hurt quite so bad
'Cause tonight I just lost the best friend I've ever had

You were a maverick runnin' all away from New Orleans
We'd tell stories 'round the campfire late at night
When it was down to just you and me

Good friend, why did you have to go?
Just when I was gettin' to know you, I'll sing this song to show
You were a good friend, they don't make 'em quite like you
And in my memory, you'll always be a good, good friend to me

You said I got a home, boy, haven't seen it for so long
Said I'm going home, boy, my work is done
I can feel it in my bones

Good friend, why did you have to go?
Just when I was gettin' to know you, I'll sing this song to show
You were a good friend, they don't make 'em quite like you
And in my memory, you'll always be a good, good friend to me

Good friend, why did you have to go?
Just when I was gettin' to know you, I'll sing this song to show
You were a good friend, they don't make 'em quite like you
And in my memory, you'll always be a good friend to me
And in my memory, you'll always be a good, good friend to me
