"Old Friend" as written by and Peggy Seeger....
Old friend, comrade of mine
Once again you're on my mind
There's always a place, there's always a time
To think of days gone by

We spent too long apart
And there's so much in my heart
I want to say before we say goodbye

Your life and mine entwined
With the music and the songs
Our future was set from the moment that we met
We were old long friends

The work that quit our play
Carried us away then brought us home
Brought us home again

Love's a game, you never made a claim
Or tried to play that game with me
That set you apart with your own place in my heart
Where you will always be

As a woman among men
It was hard to find a friend
Then you were there and with you I was free

We traveled far by scooter then by car
From Paris down to Rome
In Germany we clowned
In Switzerland broke down, we were so young then

We parted and we aged
But our rainbow didn't fade
We remained, we remained old friends

Old friend, comrade of mine
Once again you're on my mind
There's always a place, there's always a time
To think of days gone by

We spent too long apart
And there's so much in my heart
I want to say before we say goodbye

Now you are gone and like the music
And the song you've come in to my mind
It's a good we have done, ensures that we live on
You will never die

Your friends hold you dear
We'll keep you with us here
So never say, never say goodbye
