Dear Friend, I sang at your wedding,
Sent my prayers up above,
That you would be very happy,
That you would be successful in love.
We have been friends forever,
When times have been difficult to bear,
We have always consoled each other,
With good and bad times we would share.
Through sickness and sorrow,
No matter what trouble I was in,
For you were there for me always,
They’re for me through thick and thin.
You have always been a good friend,
I thank you from the bottom of my heart,
But now as I sing at your funeral,
I know as friends we must part.
But we know there is a heaven,
Together we’ll meet again,
Together as one we shall be,
Things once more will be the same.
Farewell dear friend and thank you,
For your friendship and your love,
Please prepare a place for me,
In that wonderful world above.
I sang at your wedding,
I sang with a tear in my eye,
Now I stand by your graveside,
My last words to you are GOODBYE.
