Good Friends


THE INSPIRATION

After the trials and tribulations of the end of the record contract, publishing deal, manager, my band and losing someone who I thought of as my best friend I looked around and found that not all was lost. I have found someone special to spend my life with and still had the support of friends, they were there for me in those bad times and without them I don’t think that I would have got through them. This song is dedicated to all those people who are friends with people who may not deserve but need them.

 

 

RECORDING NOTES

This recording is was done on a little 4 track cassette tape machine. On guitar is Lee Russell who had been one of the original members of 404 and was my best man when I got married. By today's standards the recording isn't very good, like all the songs recorded in this period it was very basic.

Good Friends

Good Friends

Verse One
We each got to face our worst fears eye to eye
There's no other way for somethings you must fight
Foolish pride is a double bladed knight
It can save  you or cut you up inside.

 

Verse 3
I have had my ups only to come crashing down
and giving up is something that I've thought about
Is it guts or am I just too dumb
Thank God for friends who gave me courage to go on.

 

Chorus
Good friends are hard to find,
you don't know how good until the worst of times
God bless these friends of mine
they stayed by my side.

 

Verse 3
Hey its the truth, I wouldn't tell you lies.
To know that they are there anytime.
No matter how bad these angels never leave my side
Good friends have stood the test of time

 

Chorus
Good friends are hard to find,
you don't know how good until the worst of times
God bless these friends of mine
they stayed by my side.

Mid
Lucky look what I've got
I got a friend that says I'm a drunk
Good friends til the end.
Good friends til the end

Chorus
Good friends are hard to find,
you don't know how good until the worst of times
God bless these friends of mine
they stayed by my side.
