Allman Brothers Band – Old Friend Lyrics

You know hard times, just an old friend, just an old friend to me

I say hard times, just an old friend, just an old friend to me

Tell me now old friend, oh when you gonna let me be?

Can’t you feel a cold wind, howlin’ down, blowin’ my song

Can’t you feel a cold wind, it’s howlin’ down, blowin’ my song

Well I ain’t an old man, oh but you know my time ain’t long

Gonna be a hard rain – you can hear it in the distance, sounds so near

Gonna be a hard rain – can’t you hear it in the distance, sounds so near

People when the rain comes, oh it’s gonna wash us all away from here

Mean old woman, people won’t you tell me where can she be

Mean old woman, oh people won’t you tell me where can she be

She’s the only woman, oh that ever meant a damn to me

You know hard times, just an old friend, just an old friend to me

I say hard times, just an old friend, just an old friend to me

Tell me now old friend, oh when you gonna let me be?

Tell me now old friend, oh when you gonna let me be?

Tell me now old friend, when you gonna let, this poor man be?
