lyrics

When I was a young man I had me a friend
When I was a young man, you know I still am
Her kisses were wildfire, I lived in her hands
When I was a young man I had me a friend

She liked to cut class and she cut me with words
She made me so high then kicked me in the dirt
You better believe it, that girl she could hurt
But by the way we made up, you know it was worth it

When I was a young man I had me a friend
When I was a young man you know I still am
She dressed just like midnight, she undressed like sand
When I was a young man I had me a friend

The girl liked to win, but she never would gloat
She sang in the choir and hit every note
When she told me she loved me, the words caught in her throat
but it's not what you say, girl, it's all how you show it

When I was a young man I had me a friend
When I was a young man you know I still am
Her couch it was vintage, her clothes second-hand
When I was a young man I had me a friend

Her wine in the closet, she kept a gun in the drawer
Each of them knew what the other was for
When the cork popped, the gun shot, we were down on the floor
That girl could blow kisses, ah, but sometimes she did more

When I was a young man I had me a friend
When I was a young man you know I still am
Now she's east of the Rockies, I'm west of Spokane
When I was a young man I had me a friend

She felt lost in the cities but loved it outside
Liked to sleep when the sun's up, loved driving at night
When she drove off you know it hurt more than my pride
But eventually even the worst pain subsides

When I was a young man I had me a friend
When I was a young man you know I still am
Some days I still love her, I think she understands
When I was a young man I had me a friend

When I was a young man I had me a friend
When I was a young man you know I still am
The best things in life sometimes we never plan
When I was a young man I had me a friend
