Thread Name: Lyr ADD: You've Been a Friend to Me
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: You've Been a Friend to Me
There's a third verse:

I now look back upon the past
Across life's troubled sea
And smile to think through all I've seen
You've been a friend to me

The tune is very close to Bury Me beneath the Willow; also I sing it as "MY bark of life. .. WHEN first I saw. . ."

great song! there was a time i could not sing it without crying and I can still tear up some times when singing it
