Played by John Denver in 1968, but I don't know who wrote it. Can anybody help me?

And this is the lyrics transcribed by myself. Please tell me if there is anything wrong with it.

Good Ole Friends Of Mine
(??????????)

Hey, I don't know where I'm gonna go
I ain't got the money or the time
I will say I would give a day
To be back talkin' with the good ole friends of mine

I am here, I am there, you can find me anywhere
I ain't got the money or the time
Take a friend, take a pal, take a lonesome Detroit gal
I go back talkin' with the good ole friends of mine

Everywhere I go, I am talkin' much too slow
Talkin' to the people who don't care and I don't know
But I will say I would give a day
To be back talkin' with the good ole friends of mine

I am here, I am gone, I am followin' my song
I ain't got no money but I got time
Take a friend, take a pal, take a lonesome Detroit gal
To go back talkin' with the good ole friends of mine

Everywhere I go, I am talkin' much too slow
Talkin' to the people who don't care and I don't know
But I will say I would give a day
To be back talkin' with the good ole friends of mine
I'll be back talkin' with the good ole friends of mine
I wanna be back talkin' with the good ole friends of mine

Here at this url: www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eZFNFFn7fk, it gives a scrap of the song and then on YouTube it says that it's "been removed for use violation."

Definitely implies that it's a Denver song.

An URL but a dead end

Hi Ebbie,

Thanks for your information. That video was uploaded by myself last month from my previous account "anythinglovecanbuy". Sadly, it was suspended last month. Now I have a newer account.

Jason
