Lyrics

True Friends
Words and Music by; Bryan D. Jones, Copyright Pending 2014

We met at Renfroe's bar in 1944
Me, just back from college, He just back from war
He's sit and tell the stories how they beat the Nazis down
Saturday we'd go to the lake to chase the fish around

We both got married in the spring of '53
They honeymooned in Yellowstone, we went by the sea
It was baseball in the summertime, fishing in the fall
Babies came in winter
The good Lord blessed us all

Chorus: I guess...
Seasons come, Seasons go
Sometimes we get lost inside the pages
We are surely blessed, when life comes to an end
If we can count a few true friends
We can count a few true friends

We made it thru the 60's, watched Neil walk on the moon
Took the trip down Abbey road, read Charlie Brown cartoons
His wife died in '91, mine in '92
Somehow thru the ups and downs the good Lord walked us thru.
Chorus:
Last night, after fishing, we stopped by Ray's Café
We drank a beer and made a cheer to the big one that got away
We talked about the weather, how we could use some rain
The waitress said Bowen's bull knocked down the gate again
We marveled how the Red Sox kid hits the baseball out of sight.
Just everyday news.....But he never mentioned he was dying last night.
Chorus:
