HE WAS A FRIEND OF MINE BY WILLIE NELSON IN D

A great song from the pen of Bob Dylan, adapted with some changes and used by Willie 
Nelson as the soundtrack for the film “Brokeback Mountain”. It is in the same key but a 
little slower in tempo than the Dylan original.
The intro can be played throughout each verse, and the instrumentals follow the same 
chord pattern as the verses. F#7 and Bm are barre chords. If you are not up to them yet, 
omit the 5th and 6th strings.

Metronome 56

Mike Perry
