The Last Goodbye

Vocal- Jan; Guitar- Phil

You were a man of kindness made, No evil thought, no evil said,
And the laughter at the jokes we played, Still lingers in my mind.
When I was lost it’s you I found, You came to me when I was down,
And picked me up and turned me round,
You were a friend of mine.

Chorus:
So here’s to you and here’s to me, here’s to all this company,
Charge your glasses, raise them high To a friend, a last goodbye. 


They said come in and take a place, It’s always good to see your face,
In every land with every race, A welcome you would find.
Then coming home the tales you told, Of hearts so warm and climes so cold,
With tales so tall, if I may be so bold,
’Cause you were a friend of mine. 

Chorus

And friends we had and good friends to, we’ll ne’er again see the likes of you,
Unique from point of view, They broke the mould this time
So where’er your gone we’ll meet you there.
Old friends and all will greet you there,
And there’ll be time enough and time to spare,
You’re aye a friend of mine. 

Chorus

You were a man of kindness made, No evil thought, no evil said, 

You were a friend of mine.
