Faron Young – My Friend On The Right Lyrics
Well this old picture is so faded you can hardly see
And that smiling face there in the middle well you can see it’s me
And that pretty girl there on my left was mine to hold so tight
But I lost her to my friend there on the right

And that big house you see there in the background
That big shiny car I bought to drive her around
And just to keep her happy I worked hard both day and night
Now it all belongs to my friend there on the right

The picture showed the truth but I was oh so blind
I was a guy in the middle all the times
I filled my hopes up till they were out of sight
And then she walked away with my friend there on the right

The picture showed the truth…
Yes she walked away with my friend there on the right
