Friends - Joan Armatrading



Cm Bb

             Cm          Bb   
It's been so long 

            Cm        Bb
since I've seen you, my old friend

                Eb        Bb        Cm     Bb
I remember your eyes how they would shine
             Eb        Bb    Cm  Bb  Ab        Bb Cm     Bb
Those crazy times when you and I fooled around
               Eb        Bb        Cm     Bb
I remember the time you fell in love
             Eb        Bb    Cm  Bb  Ab       
Didn't know how to say goodbye to your baby
            Eb/G                    Bb
You made me take the goodbye note around
          Cm              Gm
And that little girl, she cried and cried
       Cm                  Gm            Ab    Bb   Cm  Bb
She asked me if I knew exactly why you'd gone

         Eb    Bb        Cm     Bb
I told a lie, I said you felt
         Eb        Bb              Cm     Bb
She'd be much happier with someone else
     Ab         Eb/G             Bb
But then you'd do the same for me

Cm                Gm
Remember when we stayed out late
     Cm                          Gm                 Ab  Bb Cm  Bb
We'd cause a fight but we would never stay to the end
             Eb     Bb        Cm Bb  Eb                Bb     Cm      Bb  Ab
I loved you then, I love you still, you know I think I always will
                     Eb/G              Bb
You're a good friend, a good friend to me
Ab
Who was it, who was it, who was it, who was it
                       Eb
Came for me when I was stranded in the bad man's land
Ab
Who was it, who was it, who was it
                                 Bb
Who put up bail for me when I was so desperate to get out
Bb
Who believed with me that I was not guilty
Bb
Who gave me beer when I was thirsty
Bb
And who gave me twenty-five dollars to hold
            Eb     Bb        Cm    Bb
I loved you then, I love you still
Eb                Bb     Cm      Bb
You know I think I always will
Ab                    Eb/G            Bb         Cm
You're a good friend, a good friend to me for so long
