Best Old Friend
Tracy Nelson / Andy McMahon / The Glow 1979

As recorded by Bonnie Raitt on the album The Glow 1979

C- F C- F
Fate is mighty cruel
FWhere (133211@1)true love is concerned
It seems you give out more
Than you ever have returned
FLately (133211@1)I have tried
To make it on my own
 FAnother (133211@1)nite has passed
              |D            GLooks (320003@1)like I^?m bound to be alone
Bound to be alone

Now solitude is fine
When you really need it
When your soul is dry
Sometimes loneliness can feed it
When you need a lover
You know there^?s nothin^? else will do
When you need love most
You know it turns it^?s back on you

   |A-           F (133211@1)  |C                    |
Oh, I can make it thru without your company
G (320003@1)                   |C                     |
I only wish I knew why you won^?t comfort me
F (133211@1)                GI (320003@1)thot that I could count on you
  |A-             CTo (x32010@1)hear me cryin^? out
 |F               DI (xx0232@1)guess that^?s one comfort
      |2/4 G (320003@1)       Bb (x1333x@1)|C-  |F |C- |F |
I will    learn to do without

Fallin love too easily
But never quite so fast
so you are not the first and, lord
You sure won^?t be the last
The thing about the situation
     C-               FThat (133211@1)makes me feel so sad
C-                  FI (133211@1)could^?ve been the best old friend
    |D        G (320003@1)  C-  F|C- (133211@1)/ |
That you have ever had
I could^?ve been the best old friend
That you have ever had

| = bar line; / = play same as previous chord
No bar line = chord gets entire measure's time
Within bar lines chords divide measure accordingly
