Old Friends

There ain't nothing in the world like an old friend
Someone who knew you way back when
They help you remember where you came from
Back when you did those things that now seem so dumb
Yeah, look at how far we have all come
No one can say that like an old chum
One word and they can make your face numb
Then with a smile that you remember they can wake you
Reminding you old friends will not forsake you
Especially when you feel the world will break you

Yeah, there ain't nothing in the world like an old friend
A precious gift you should protect and defend
Not always easy to comprehend
But when you feel like jumping off the deep end
It's the old friend who comes around the bend

Look at the friends who currently surround you
Each has a sweet tale of how they found you
But it's the old friends who will always ground you
The love of an old friend can astound you
Not only that, but they can be profound too
So try to keep at least a few old ones around you.
Just my advice. I promise not to hound you :-)

Yeah, there ain't nothing in the world like an old friend. amen
