Good Friend

Song Author Robert Johnson Lyrics by: Robert Johnson Performer: Robert Johnson Submitted by: Anonymous
When you go[G]t a good friend
that stay right by your side[G7]    
When you go[C]t a good friend
that will stay right by your side[G]    [G7]    
[D]Give her all your spare time,
try to lo[C]ve and treat her ri[G]ght  

I mistreated my baby,
I can't see no reason why[G7]    
I mistre[C]ated my baby,
I can't see no reason w[G]hy  [G7]    
[D]Every time I thinks about it,
I just w[C]ring my hands and c[G]ry  

Would the good old baby apologise
or would she sympathise with me?[G7]    
Would the [C]good old baby apologise
or would she sympathise with [G]me?  [G7]    
[D]She's a brownskin woman,
just as s[C]weet as a girl friend can b[G]e  

I love my baby, but why
can't we can't agree[G7]    
I l[C]ove my woman, but why
can't we can't ag[G]ree  [G7]    
[D]I really love that woman,
wonder w[C]hy we can't agr[G]ee  

It's your opinion friend-girl,
that I may be right or wrong[G7]    
It's your [C]opinion friend-girl,
that I may be right or [G]wrong[G7]    
[D]But when you watch your close friend,
[C]baby, then your enemies can't do you no [G]harm

When you go[G]t a good friend
that will stay right by your side[G7]    
When you go[C]t a good friend
that will stay right by your side[G]    [G7]    
[D]Give her all your spare time,
try to lo[C]ve and treat her ri[G]ght  

When you got a good friend
that stay right by your side
When you got a good friend
that will stay right by your side
Give her all your spare time,
try to love and treat her right

I mistreated my baby,
I can't see no reason why
I mistreated my baby,
I can't see no reason why
Every time I thinks about it,
I just wring my hands and cry

Would the good old baby apologise
or would she sympathise with me?
Would the good old baby apologise
or would she sympathise with me?
She's a brownskin woman,
just as sweet as a girl friend can be

I love my baby, but why
can't we can't agree
I love my woman, but why
can't we can't agree
I really love that woman,
wonder why we can't agree

It's your opinion friend-girl,
that I may be right or wrong
It's your opinion friend-girl,
that I may be right or wrong
But when you watch your close friend,
baby, then your enemies can't do you no harm

When you got a good friend
that will stay right by your side
When you got a good friend
that will stay right by your side
Give her all your spare time,
try to love and treat her right
