SIX STRING FRIEND song lyrics


You and me have been a little out of tune
When I got drunk I couldn’t blame it all on you
But there are strings to this relationship
And you’re going to have to play the blues sometimes
If you want to keep hanging like this

My six string friend, you’ve always seen me through
No matter what women or the smoke and the whiskey do
You’ve never made an enemy but made me quite a few friends
And I’ve begun to feel that you’re the only one
That I can trust when it all depends

You remember that girl we met up in Buffalo
I wanted to stay but you wanted to play and go
So I left her behind and I can see her crying that night
But I wouldn’t trade you for her, old friend
So I guess it all worked out alright

Lost in my luggage on an airplane to New Orleans
You were busted in customs with a bag of something green
I claimed you even though jail is what it meant
And convinced the judge that taking you
Was too cruel of a punishment

My six string friend, you’ve always seen me through
No matter what women or the smoke and the whiskey do
You’ve never made an enemy but made me quite a few friends
And I’ve begun to feel that you’re the only one
That I can trust when it all depends

Times I feel like we’re never going to get to rest
But before I die I’m going to write a last request
That they bury you along with me and my songs
And when we get to the pearly gates why we’ll
Just get them all to sing along

My six string friend, you’ve always seen me through
No matter what women or the smoke and the whiskey do
You’ve never made an enemy but made me quite a few friends
And I’ve begun to feel that you’re the only one
That I can trust when it all depends
