Copied from another thread:
Hi. Would it be possible to obtain the guitar chords to FRIENDS OF MINE? I would love to be able to play it. I have Harvey's CD but my musical ear is not that good as to be able to pick out the chords.

Many thanks,

Phil
FRIENDS OF MINE appeared on Harvey Andrews' album "Friends of Mine" (1973).

YouTube has a video of FRIENDS OF MINE being performed by a band called Beggars Mantle: Click here. The recording seems contemporary to the album.

If nobody else posts the lyrics, I will try to transcribe them in a day or two.

The lyrics are printed in the booklet of the "Friends of Mine" CD. Why don't you just buy it from Harvey Andrews' website?

Friends of Mine Lyrics
Harvey Andrews

Intro....

In an old hotel in Germany,
I'm thinking all the while of you,
And I'm wishing I was on the plane back home right now!
Everybody I meet they send their love,
And they've been so good to me,
And I'll never have the words to let them know just how!

And they heard our music
And they sang our songs
And they gave us food and wine...
And I've got to get you over here to meet these friends of mine!

We travelled on down through Amsterdam
Through the plains and the open lands
To the lonely man who asked what news we had...
And we sang to them and the open road
And the city and the towns
And we gave them all our views both good and bad,

And they heard our music
And they sang our songs
And they gave us food and wine
And I've got to get you over here to meet these friends of mine

[Bridge]

And they heard our music
And they sang our songs
And they gave us food and wine
And I've got to get you over here to meet these friends of mine

So here's another picture card
And here's another word
Just to tell you it's your loving keeps me sane....
And I know you'll cry when I hold you close and I know that I'll be glad
And I'll never stay away from you this long again.....

And I know you'll cry when I hold you close and I know that I'll be glad...
And I'll never stay away from you this long again.....

correct lyric!

We travelled on down through Amsterdam
And the plains of the open land
To the lonely men who asked what news we had...
And we sang to them of the open road
Of the city and the town
And we gave them all the views both good and bad,

And they heard our music
And they sang our songs
And they gave us food and wine
And I've got to get you over here to meet these friends of mine

Lyrics too at the end of the original post!

I have the original LP somewhere in the garage, and would have to dig it out to hear it again to get the chords.

OK folks, here is one for you. How about the chord sequence for 'Writer Of Songs'. Sounds simple enough but I can't work it out, (mind you, that isn't saying much)! I know from reading some of Harvey's comments over the years that this composition even surprised him at the time.

Harvey Andrews used to be a member here on the Cat under his own name. Why don't you mail him and get the proper words and chords from the man himself.

Hi, Guest. I guess you are referring to 'Friends of Mine,' right?
======
Two years ago, somebody asked for the chords to Anna, My Love.

Here's a video where you can see chords very clearly:

If you can't read chords of a neck yet, play the favorite ones (G,D,A,Bm etc) and you'll see.
