Old friend, so you're in trouble again, you ask me today,
To try and find a little time, and maybe buy a glass of wine,
Old friend, I'm coming through

Old friend, yes I remember you, always a smile on your face,
Oh a memory from years before, an old man and a little boy,
Old friend, I remember you

You used to take me fishing down by the wishing well,
One day you threw a wish in, and we listened while it fell,
And you made a wish

"When the years are heavy, and my heart is growing cold,
Well I wish when the evening comes that there'll always be
Some old friend who'll miss me too"

Well I do, so friend I'm coming through
Yes, for you I'll always find the time, we will have a bottle
Of wine, old friend, I'm here by your side, oh, to the very end,
Old friend, I miss you too, my dear old friend
Old friend, old friend

    General CommentThe song's about two inseparable friends, like brothers. Who had and will always have a wonderful time together. Real Friendsship is forever eventhough time can separate two people they will always stay in mind of each other.
    A positive song from a wonderful artist.
