Best Friend

This song is by Roy Orbison and appears on the album The Fastest Guitar Alive (1967).

Lalalalala...
An old man on his death bed whispered to me "you are the master of your destiny"
A diamond is a diamond a stone a stone but a man's not all good nor all bad
Call them as you see them you'll stand alone
You're the best friend that you ever had oh yeah
You're the best friend that you ever had

So laugh when it's time to laugh, cry when it's time to cry, live while it's time to live
You'll die when it's time to die
Lalalalala...

Then he closed his eyes and left me alone, my old friend's death brought his wisdom home
A diamond is a diamond a stone a stone but a man's not all good nor all bad
Call them as you see them you'll stand alone, you're the best friend that you ever had oh yeah
You're the best friend that you ever had

So laugh when it's time to laugh cry when it's time to cry
Live while it's time to live you'll die when it's time to die
Lalalalala...
