He Was a Friend of Mine

He Was a Friend of Mine

He was a friend of mine
He was a friend of mine.
Never had no money to pay his fine
He was a friend of mine.

He died on the road, (twice)
Never had no money (to) pay for his board,
He was a friend of mine.

He never done no wrong, (twice)
He was just a poor boy, a long way from home,
He was a friend of mine.

I stole away and cried, (twice)
Never had no money and I can't be satisfied,
He was a friend of mine.

He was a friend of mine, (twice)
When I hear his name
You know I just can't keep from crying,
He was a friend of mine.
