New Friend of Mine
Written May 1, 1980
This was the first song my wife ever heard me play before we knew each other.

Lyrics

I say hello. Why don’t you stay?
Just spend some time, New friend of mine. Cause where I go the folks they know.
We spend a moment together sharing our smiles on down the line, new friend of mine.
There is a light that shines above.
It guides my travels. It shows my love.
And through my songs a stranger longs
To get to know me and I know them.
A message for each to send on down the line, new friend of mine.
There is a lesson to be learned.
Human friendship ain’t hard to earn.
Just break the walls, the walls, the walls, the walls between.
A little caring about each other,
No matter the creed or color is all we need. Don’t want no greed. No, no, no greed.
I’ve traveled from east to west.
No place I like the best.
Folks just stretch out their hands any old place in the land.
On down the line, there’s a new friend of mine.
And in the darkness don’t be afraid.
You hear my whisper, whisper, whisper, music being played.
Not even the clouds can ruin your day.
And I remember not why we came, music may ease your pain.
Don’t hang your head down low
and don’t let a new friend go
On down the line, without a sign,
that you’re doing fine.
There’s a new friend of mine.
Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, New friend of mine......I say hello
