From the recording Stone and Steel
True-Hearted Friend (capo on 4th fret in B) B harp
I wanted a bike to take me far.
and new horizons, so I wished upon a star.
On Sunday mornings, my dad and I would ride.
I’d try to get us lost on a way I’d never tried.
He’d turn us around when it was time.
I was never scared. We’d make it home just fine.

What I learned in the end, is that all I wanted in this world,
G D G
was the love of a true-hearted friend.
My young heart fell for a gorgeous girl.
Revolution was loose in our world.
She never failed to turn men’s heads.
All I saw was fantasy instead.
The wild times turned flat as shallow water
and became harder to explain to young daughters.
From the first time I felt a sound so sweet,
I wanted to bring a hall to their feet.
I’d drive all day. I didn’t care.
Lots of practice to my cats on the stairs.
Our stages, they were good and they were bad.
But I found the best friends I’ve ever had.
