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,
       Bm   Esus4   E           A (bass run riff)
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...
 
F#m                          Bm        E                             F#m
You used to take me fishing down by the wishing well,
F#m                          C#m                  Bm            E       C#
One day you threw a wish in, and we listened while it fell,
                            C#
And you made a wish...;
 
  D              E              A                     D            E          A
"When the years are heavy, and my heart is growing cold,
            D                   C#         F#m                   Dm7 ?
Well I wish when the evening comes that there'll always be
A    C#m - B#m Bm   Esus4     E        A
Some old_____friend who'll miss me too..."
   F#m (just play bass string eighth notes)
Well I do,
           Bm             E            A - E
So old friend I'm coming through...
A  Amaj7  C#  C#(with B bass)      F#m
La da la da la da la, la da la da la da la,
F#m       Bm                  E                  C#m                          
Yes, for you I'll always find the time, we will have a bottle of wine
       Bm             E                C#m                  F#m                Bm
Old friend, I'm here by your side, oh, to the very end, old friend
   Esus4  -     E    A         C#m   Bm    Esus4   E
                      I miss you too...
                    A     C#m - Bm - Esus4 - E
My dear old friend...
         A  C#m   Bm  Esus4  E
Old friend... Ah ah ah...
               A     C#m  Bm  Esus4  E
Oh, Old friend...
