lyrics

F C
Ain’t it sad, when your friends forget you? Ain’t it sad, when they all disappear?
Gm C F7 A#
They don’t ever seem to call or write. Always have some other plans at night.
Gm C F
Ain’t it sad, when your friends forget you?

VERSE 2
F C
Ain’t it sad, when your friends forget you? Friday nights, all alone with your beer.
Gm C F7 A#
When there’s not a thing on the TV, you have another beer then fall asleep.
Gm C F
Ain’t it sad, when your friends forget you?

CHORUS 1
C F
I tried to ring you but you never take my calls.
C Gm A#
Stopped by your office but secretary said you’re busy probably out with Jude or Lizzy.
A#m C
Seems I’m just not on your mind at all.

VERSE 3
Ain’t it sad, when your friends forget you? Off with wives and the kids and the like.
Could be I’ve become a bore with old age or maybe this is all just a short stage.
‘Cause it’s so sad when your friends forget you.

CHORUS 1
I tried to ring you but you never take my calls.
Stopped by your office but secretary said you’re busy probably out with Jude or Lizzy.
Seems I’m never on your mind at all.

VERSE 4
Ain’t it sad, when your friends forget you? So awkward when you see them on the street.
try to talk but don’t know where to start. Too much time I guess we’ve grown apart.
Gm C
Ain’t it sad, when your friends,
Dm F
ain’t it sad when your friends,
A# A#m C
ain’t it sad when your friends forget you?
