"My Old Friend" lyrics

My Old Friend

(With Paul McCartney)

On the Isle of Montserrat
No I never shall forget
Just a country boy
A guitar and a song
You invited me in
And you've treated me like king
And you've given me
A reason to go on

My old friend
Thanks for inviting me in
My old friend
May this goodbye
Never mean the end

If we never meet again
This side of life
In a little while
Over yonder
Where it's peace and quiet
My old friend
Won't you think about me
Every now and then

If I told you how I feel
Oh, it wouldn't sound so real
Cause emotions
They are just now setting in
But it sure is great to know
That wherever we may go
We can always be
The best of friends

My old friend
Thanks for inviting me in
My old friend
May this goodbye
Never mean the end

And if we never meet again
This side of life
In a little while
Over yonder
Where it's peace and quiet
My old friend
Won't you think about me
Every now and then

And I'll think about you
My old friend
