"This is a song dedicated to the memory of my best friend. His name was Jimi."

Me and my best friend travelled down life's highway.
We talked of how things should be,
Of peace and love for you and me.
Of a life without hate.
Of a life filled with love.
On that first day, he played my guitar.
Somehow I knew, we travelled far,
We travelled fine, his distant star.
Many things he would try,
For he knew soon he'd die.
Oh, why did it happen?
All the sadness, he is gone.
But he left us something that time can't erase.
Now he's loved by us all.
Yes, he's loved by us all.
That is my story. It has no end.
Now Jimi's gone, he's not alone.
His memory still lives on.
Like the fox that he named,
Though they still gained less pain.

Five years, this he said.
He's not gone, he's just dead.

    Lyric Correctionme and my best friend
    travelled down life's highway
    we talked of how
    how things shold be
    of peace and love
    for you and me
    of a life without hate
    of a life filled with love

    on that first day
    he played my guitar
    somehow I knew
    he'd travel far
    reach out and find
    his distant star
    many things he would try
    for he knew soon he'd die

    ohohoh why
    did it happen
    oh the sadness
    he is gone
    but he left us something
    that time can't erase
    now he's loved by us all
    yes he's loved by us all

    that is my story
    it has no end
    now Jimi's gone
    he's not alone
    his memory
    still lingers on
    like the thoughts that remain
    though they still bring us pain

    five years, this he said
    he's not gone he's just dead
