Old Friend

This song is by Chris de Burgh and appears on the album Spanish Train And Other Stories (1975).

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 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 old 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...
