Music/Lyrics by Jim Ferrie

Where did the years go?
Since we went on our separate ways
We'd had the best of times together

Times we shared, the times we knew
Cool and carefree, full of youth
I won't forget you now, not ever

Well here I am, once again
And you like smoke upon the wind
Free at last and free forever

So here it is, Goodbye Old Friend
Forever young right to the end
You used to say we'd live forever
So here and now beneath the sky
Until we meet again Goodbye, Goodbye
Goodbye Old Friend

Warm and carefree summer breeze
You always did as you would please
No regrets and no tomorrows

And I'll remember time again
And hear your laughter in the wind
Free at last and free forever

So here it is, Goodbye Old Friend
Forever young right to the end
For in the end you live forever
So here and now beneath the sky
Until we meet again Goodbye, Goodbye
Goodbye Old Friend
