D                         G         D
Hey old friend, I came to see you today
G           D                          G        D
I’m sorry I couldn’t be here when they laid you down
                                   G                  D
The way things are going at work I just couldn’t get away
G    D                                     G            D
I can’t believe the way this small town is growing everyday
F                       D     G                    D
Remember that time your mamma caught us with those cigarettes 
F               G                         D      G  D
Every time your girlfriend called you got upset
                           G        D
Did you ever marry, do you have any kids?
                                 G                     D
You talked about joinin the Army did you ever find the nerve?
                                                G            D
We were so hell bent on going to State, did you ever go that far
                                         G          D
I took a job in the oil field by then, I needed the cash
F             G                            D
Remember that one time that guy punched me in the mouth
F                    G              D            G    D
I never thought we’d make it out of there alive
D                                     G          D
It’s crazy, just the other day, I had you on my mind
                                             G             D
I saw your folks in church last June, hadn’t seen them in years
G    D
They told me what your sister went through
               G         D
I had to fight back the tears

She was strong enough to deal with us two 
          G        D
she could beat anything
         F             G                        D
Remember that time the police chased us through downtown
     F         G               D           G    D
Told me not to worry “I’ll lie for you” 

                 G                               D
Well old friend, I think it’s getting kinda late
                                     G            D
I’ll try not to be a stranger when I come back to town

I’ll set this bottle of Jim Beam by your headstone and flowers
                          G              D
I know the seal is broken but I couldn’t drink alone
                         G         D
Hey old friend I came to see you today
