Windsor Missouri - lyrics to "Old Friends"


The song 'Old Friends' was written by Roger Miller. "Old Friends", which Roger Miller wrote for his mom and dad back in Oklahoma, and of which he was especially proud, deserves a spot on our Windsor Missouri website.

Ray Price joined Willie Nelson and Roger Miller for the recording session, and the sweetly melancholy tune made a respectable showing on the charts. As it turned out, "Old Friends" was the last most people heard of Roger Miller.

Old friends, pitching pennies in the park
Playing croquet 'til it's dark, old friends
Mmm old friends, swapping lies of lives and loves
Pitching popcorn to the doves, old friends

Old friends, looking up to watch a bird
Holding arms to climb a curb, old friends
Old friends, lord when all my work is done
Bless my life and grant me one, old friend
At least one, old friend

Old friends, looking up to watch a bird
Holding arms to climb a curb, old friends
Old friends, lord when all my work is done
Bless my life and grant me one, old friend
At least one, old friend
