      JAMES TAYLOR - HELLO, OLD FRIEND. From WALKING MAN album.
                     Released 1974.

---------------------------------------------------------------

      Tabbed by:PJVillanueva







Paris' rooftops were lovely to see. 
Switzerland's vertical landscape 
crossed my mind's eye just now.
Canada's shoreline has been calling out to me, 
but it's been too long a time
since last I crossed that vast Nantucket sound.

Hello old friend, welcome me home again. 
Well, I've been away but that's all over now.
Say I can stay for October, now, stay a while and play.

Little dog David, I must look like a fool.
I should've remembered you'd be forgetting my smell, well.
Give me a week or two to recapture my cool, 
I've got stories to tell
about how I snatched the devil's catch 
and out ran the hounds of hell.

Hello old friend, welcome me home again. 
Well, I've been away but that's all over now.
Say I can stay for October, now, stay a while and see.

Hello old friend, welcome me home again. 
Well, I've been away but that's all over now.
Isn’t it nice to be home again, over here it’s clear. 
Hello, old friend.
