about

An old cowboy song about losing a friend.

lyrics

I walk these empty streets now on my own,
without a friend to take my old bones home
I've travelled far in a world with no end,
and all I'm missing is a friend
Long ago in a lonely town,
me and Charlie were running down
A gang of bandits and a bag of cash,
seeing if we could make the sunlight last

Charlie Friend was a friend of mine,
upon the rising sands of time
And what a friend to carry through this life,
but on that night so long,
he gave his life for mine [Chorus]

But as the sunlight began to fade,
we looked upon the mascaraed
Cause as we looked to see what we could see,
one of those bandits snuck up on me
He pulled his gun and shouted, "Not so fast!"
But that's as long as Charlie's patience was gonna last
He pulled his own gun and he pushed me away,
so I could live to see another day

Charlie Friend was a friend of mine,
upon the rising sands of time
And what a friend to carry through this life,
but on that night so long,
he gave his life for mine [Chorus]

I made it home without a scratch upon my face,
my best friend laying in his resting place
I broke the news to his only son,
of what a hero his daddy had become

What's a rambler supposed to do,
without a friend to tell his stories to
I walk these empty streets now on my own,
without a friend to take my old bones home

Charlie Friend was a friend of mine,
upon the rising sands of time
And what a friend to carry through this life,
but on that night so long,
he gave his life for mine [Chorus]
