You Were A Good Friend
Recorded by Kenny Rogers
Written by Dave Ellingson and Kim Carnes

G D7 G D7
If I closed my eyes it doesn’t hurt quite so bad
G D7 G D7
Cause tonight I just lost the best friend I ever had
G C G D7
You were a maverick running all the way from New Orleans
G D7
We’d tell stories ´round the campfire late at night
G D7
When it was down to just you and me

Em C D7 G
Good friend why did you have to go
Em C D7
Just when I was getting to know you I’ll sing this song to show
Em C D7 G
You were a good friend they don’t make ‘em quite like you
C D7 G
And in my memory you’ll always be a good good friend to me

D7 G D7
You said I got a home boy haven’t seen it for so long
G D7 G D7
Said I’m going home boy my work is done I can feel it in my bones

Repeat #2 x2

C D7 G
And in my memory you’ll always be a good good friend to me
