Bob Dylan He Was a Friend of Mine Lyrics

Last updated: 10/15/2013 07:27:32 AM

He was a friend of mine
He was a friend of mine
Every time I think about him now
Lord I just can't keep from cryin'
'Cause he was a friend of mine

He died on the road
He died on the road
He never had enough money
To pay his room or board
And he was a friend of mine

I stole away and cried
I stole away and cried
'Cause I never had too much money
And I never been quite satisfied
And he was a friend of mine

He never done no wrong
He never done no wrong
A thousand miles from home
And he never harmed no one
And he was a friend of mine

He was a friend of mine
He was a friend of mine
Every time I hear his name
Lord I just can't keep from cryin'
'Cause he was a friend of mine.

He Was A Friend of Mine | Reviewer: Glory Cloud Revelation | 10/15/13

This is a sweet song expressing the love of friendship….Love covers a multitude of sins, always believes the best of somebody.  (I Peter 4:8, I Corinthians 14:7)  Don't know who Bob had in mind in writing this.  However, what is expressed by the sound of his voice, and music is a deep compassion and love for someone who has died.
