❝ Has any body here,
Seen my old friend Abraham,
Can you tell me, where he’s gone.
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the Good die young
I just looked around,
And he was gone.
Has anybody here,
Seen my old friend John,
Can you tell me where he’s gone.
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good die young
I just looked around
And he was gone.
Has any body here seen my old friend Martin,
Can you tell me, where he’s gone
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good die young
I just looked around
And he was gone.
Has any body here
Seen my old friend bobby.
