My Rock and Roll Friend - Gone

They broke the news to me today That my friend - who loved rock and roll had left this mortal coil We used to burst into song when we saw each other He loved screaming guitars and played one himself He died in his forties He wasn't watching his health carefully which is something we all should do I remember the times he shared his food with me He was generous in that way My rock and roll friend is gone Now I'll have to sing metal tunes by myself We all we face the grim reaper but his passing came too soon, too soon I will think of him When I hear rock and roll from my radio His memory will live on with his friends and loved ones Another rocker gone....
