Here's a song sent by a good, old friend* so I'd like to share it with all my thoughtful and kindly friends. And you are one...
It's been revived by Trudi Lalor, a talented lady from Ireland, UK. Inspired by Louise Morrissey, Ms Lalor is one of the top young country singers in the UK and Irish music scene today. Garth Brooks was very much impressed by her performance when he visited Ireland.
She's really good, a vibrant voice with clarity and charm, singing the folksy quick waltz with an Irish lilt. Hooray.
*Many readers could not find the lyrics, so here's my service to all friends and viewers. I copied it off YouTube and the song is composed by Billy Morrissey.
(There may be some words which are wrong, so let me know.)
Old Friends Are Best
I always remember when I was young
Through words, my father would say
Be kind to the people you meet in this life
And help them along on their way
For each has their trouble and their own can of woes
And each has a story to tell
A good wish, a smile, a kind word or two
Will help to brighten their day
Old friends are best
That's what the old folks say
When put to the test
Old friends are best
They'll stand by you come what may
(You'll be my old friend someday)
New friends are fine but like a good wine
They only get better with age
In the blink of an eye and years, all go by
With every turn of life's page
Trouble and strife, we'll meet in good life
And we all must go on till the end
But in good times or bad, happy or sad
There is nobody like an old friend.

Thanks for the song buddy.

Yes, old friends are best!
As the saying goes:
Make new friends, keep the old,
One's silver, the other's gold.
Beautiful voice, clarity
Cheers, old buddy.
Wow! thank you.
You know Paul has reminded me of the Bible, that Jesus mentioned, most times friends are much better than family members.
It's very true indeed. Always stay positive in life; makes everything sweeter.
The singer damn good voice.
You are one too, Andy.
Truly so. Thank you Old Friend.
Nice voice too.
Connect with old friends, and also make new ones along the way.
Okay ,i will be your old best friend ... agree Andrew Young... heeeee !!!!
a very beautiful song with sound advice. Good friends are like fine wine the age well and taste best when mature, however bad friends are like bad wine, the turn into vinegar with age. Treasure and enjoy the company of the good ones especially the true ones and discard the other - the bad ones - or at best keep them as acquaintances. New friends are interesting as they bring about new experiences.
Cheerio have a nice weekend.
Thanks, Ms Koh and Michael for your constant support. Yes, you are both right about old friends. And Michael, I enjoy the company of sincere friends. You will realise after some time if they are sincere. Glad you like the song. :-)
Many thanks to the others who wrote in. In life, we need friends. Very true.
Thank you for sharing this song!
Yes, agree old friends are best! I've got a group of Sec friends whom we catch up with every quarter.
Larry is still good looking.

Thank you for sharing. I love this song. Unable to find the lyrics can anyone forward to me. Thanks
Fall in love with this beautiful and meaningful song.
Would like to request for the song lyrics.
Thanks for posting: One small correction:
"Trouble and strife, we'll meet in good life" should be "Trouble and strife, we'll meet in this life".
Truly remarkable brought tears to my eyes
THANKS SO MUCH UNKNOWN FOR SUCH A SENSITIVE COMMENT.
DO VISIT THIS BLOG AGAIN.
For lyrics just google and you can find it. But finding the chords to go with it is difficult!
The chord progression consists of four basic chords:
C major - C
G major - G
A minor - Am
F major - F
Depending of course what key you're singing in.
Thanks for all these.
May I please request you to provide the entire chord sheet for the song "Old Friends Are Best, Trudi Lalor". I am relatively new to guitar and I have no issues playing the melodies. I have started with the harmony and I am loving it now (initially did not like much because of the fear of losing the melody in the chaos - lol :). My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cheers and kind regards.
Thanks for the mail.
I am leaving your letter for others to read, including your email address to reply.
If any reader can help you, they will surely write in to help.
I am sorry, I tried looking but couldn't find one; perhaps you need to buy chord sheets, I'm not sure.
Beautiful song. I just can't help but love it. It is a song for Home coming
