Old Friends

Intro: C 

I saw you at the railway station 
there had been a cancelation 
F                                 G 
you were smoking cigarettes alone 
  C                           Am 
I walked up and said hello, I lost my wife two days ago 
    F                      G                C 
You shook my hand and said Francis was your name 

              F     G 
And you had a hat 
            C      Am 
And I had a hat 
F                G 
Mmm, we both had hats 
                F       G 
And my wife was dead 
                  Am       D 
And your wife was dead 
F      G                C 
  Shit happens, Francis said 

Francis said it's five o'clock 
Am                           F                           G 
How about we find a rock and throw at some cars from the bridge 
I laughed and said that sounds like fun 
We walked into the setting sun 
    F                 G             C 
And Francis said "I'm aiming at the kids" 

               F    G              
And he threw a rock 
             C    Am 
So I threw a rock 
   F                         G 
We both put some gravel in a sock 
                 F   G                  Am      D 
And he threw the sock, I said we should stop 
   F                  G                 C 
He smiled at me, then threw a rock in a sock 

We snuck down to the local farm 
And there we opened up the barn 
   F                                  G 
To set the horses free and watch them run 
The moon was extra bright that night 
The horses in the pale moonlight 
 F                   G                    C 
"Watch this" Francis said, and pulled his gun 

              F      G 
And he shot a horse 
            C     Am 
So I shot a horse 
F                                 G 
Francis choked a chicken with his hands 
                  F  G               Am    D 
But watching them die, he started to cry 
     F              G                   C 
"I'm bored" Francis said, let's steal a car 

Oh, Margaret, Oh Margaret 
          F              C 
Don't you worry bout' me now 
    Am         F          C 
I'm doing just fine on my own 
          G                               F                 C 
There are other things to life than your soft skin against mine 
    Am         F               C 
And Francis is helping me move on 
    G      C 
I'm moving on 

Life's a bitch, a wise man said 
No matter what, you end up dead 
    F                              G 
And all that you can wish for is a friend 
So pour another glass of wine 
With Francis shoulder touching mine 
      F                 G              C 
I 'll stay right here until the bitter end 

               F    G 
And you have a hat 
             C     Am 
And I have a hat 
F                 G 
Mmm, we both have hats 
                 F     G 
And your wife is dead 
               Am    D 
And my wife is dead 
F         G             Am 
Here's to life, Francis said 
F         G             Am 
Here's to life, Francis said 
F         G             C 
Here's to life, Francis said
