"Lefty's Gone" as written by and Shafer....
A jukebox introduced us, when the sixties were still young.
"If You've Got the Money, Honey" got my nickels one by one.
I tried to imitate that song.
It's not right, but Lefty's gone.

"Always Late" breaks my heart.
In every song he sang, I played the part.
I heard he was sad, and lived alone.
It's not right, but Lefty's gone.

He played the fair in Dallas one year,
In the cold October rain.
Most folks stayed home and warm,
But he sang just the same.
I caught a chill before I got home.
It's not right, but Lefty's gone.

"Always Late" breaks my heart.
In every song he sang, I played the part.
I heard he was sad, and lived alone.
It's not right, but Lefty's gone.

It don't seem like he was around that long.
It's not right, but Lefty's gone.

    General CommentIt's a great song about a friendship between two people, specifically Shafer (songwriter) and Lefty Frizzell, not friendship in general. The melody is unique and sets the mood perfectly for the song. A tribute to a friend who is gone does not have to be universal, just a message from the inside.
