Back to original Chorus to finish off.

Lyrics:
I've got this friend
I don't think you know him
He's not much for words
He's hid in his hardened way

Oh I've got this friend
A loveless romantic
All that he really wants
Is someone to want him back

Ohh, if the right one came
If the right one came along
Ohh, If the right one came, along

I've got this friend
I don't think you know her
She sings a simple song
It sounds a lot like his

Oh I've got this friend
Holding onto her heart
Like it's a little secret
Like it's all she's got to give

Ohh, if the right one came
If the right one came along
Ohh, if the right one came, along

It'd be such a shame
(If they never meet)
She sounds lovely
(He sounds right out of a dream)
If only
(If only)
If only

Ohh
Ohh, if the right one came
If the right one came along
Ohh, (I've got this friend) if the right one came
If the right one came along
Ohh, (I've got this friend)
If the right one came, along

simple. Additional Intro stuff:

g------------------------------------------------
d------------------------------------------------

Ahahaha, "I don't know, I'm not BB King"

Great tab. Thank you.

I just think that "Bsomething" chord is like so:
e---
b---
g-6-
d-5-
a---
e---

Really great tab, just one correction.

First chord on the bridge should be an Em, like you've said, but the tab does not match up. It should be:

Em E7
