"He never done no wrong"

Van Ronk, hier in New York op zijn Gibson gitaar.

'He was a friend of mine', Ronk with the traditional songtext. Van Ronk zong dit nummer ook live tijdens het Phil Ochs Memorial Concert en met Nanci Griffith (klein egotripje Dave, Nancy zingt zo mooi). Bob Dylan vertolkte dit nummer onder meer live in het Gaslight Café op 6 September 1961.

He was a friend of mine  traditional songtext

He was a friend of mine
He was a friend of mine
Every time I think about him now
Lord I just can't keep from crying
Cause he was friend a friend of mine

He died on the road
He died on the road
He never had no money
To pay his room or board
He was a friend of mine

I stole away and cried
I stole away and cried
Cause I never had too much money
And I can't be satisfied
He was a friend of mine

He never done no wrong
He never done no wrong
He was just a poor boy
Long way from home
He was a friend of mine

He was a friend of mine
He was a friend of mine
Every time I hear his name
I just can't keep from crying
Cause he was a friend of mine
