"When You Got A Good Friend" as written by and Robert Johnson....
When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
Give her all of your spare time, love and treat her right

I mistreated my baby, and I can't see no reason why
I mistreated my baby, but I can't see no reason why
Every time I think about it, I just wring my hands and cry

Wonder could I to bear apologize, or would she sympathize with me?
Mmm-mmm-mmm, would she sympathize with me?
She's a brown-skin woman, just as sweet as a girlfriend can be

Mmm-mmm, babe, I may be right or wrong
Baby, it's your opinion, oh, I may be right or wrong
Watch your close friend, baby, then your enemies can't do you no harm

When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
Give her all of your spare time, love and treat her right

    General CommentIt really gives the feel of esential blues.. In some way it reminds me of super hero movies where vilains tend to kidnap the girl of a good hero character.. So You better watch your friend close, receive the fullfilment for your heart.. and no one will take it from you!
    This is some hardcore blues, baby! R.Johnson - love it!
