Lyrics

HOPE YOU’RE ON THE MEND, OL’ FRIEND.


You seen all life has to offer
Highs and lows I seen you suffer.
Hey it's all worked out in the end
I hope you're on the mend ol' friend

Seems a life time that I known you
Although at times I had to stone you.
But I never meant to offend
Hope you're on the mend ol' friend.
And it'll be fine in the end....

I remember when we were young
Riding high but on the run.
Sure we were sons of guns
And didnt answer to no one.

Now days are short and the night is long
So many songs seem left unsung.
But we now know what's right or wrong
We can climb one more rung.

So, hope you're on the mend ol' friend
And you pass my way again.
be like it was way back when
And we'll be on the mend ol' friend.
And we'll be fine in the end.

nice chord changes and playing, warm guitar tone. organ break fits well. the first line of the 3rd verse goes off a bit, was that deliberate? cheers graham

Wow
Hi Denis,
I think this is the first time I've listened to your songs. I can't understand how I missed them for so long 'cause they are great. When I first heard this I thought some joker had uploaded a rare Tom petty track but not so! My comparing you to Tom Petty is 100% complimentary - I don't mean to say you're copying him or anything like that - I'm just saying it as a reflection of good this sounds!
Excellent stuff! New fan here.
Cheers
Steve

Very Tom Petty
influenced for sure but sounds great. I like the hook in this one too. Well done from top to bottom. I would suggest unpanning the high hat though, it is a bit distracting in the left speaker so heavily.

Excellent work here!

"Hope You're On The Mend Ol' Friend" that line is such a great hook. I love the petty influence!
