Has anybody here
Seen my old friend Abraham
Can you tell me
Where he has gone

'Cos he freed a lot of people
But it seems the good die young
I just turned around
And he was gone

Has anybody here
Seen my old friend Martin
Can you tell me
Where he has gone

'Cos he freed a lot of people
But it seems the good die young
I just looked around
And he was gone

Has anybody here
Seen my old friend John
Can you tell me
Where he has gone

'Cos he freed a lot of people
But it seems the good die young
I just looked around
And he was gone

I just looked around
And he was gone

    General CommentI had always thought this song was about friends of the songwriter who were killed in war. Normal guys who went to war and they died young.
    This songs real meaning is about Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy
    This song always brings me to tears, people who fought to make this world a better place for you and me.
