hello old friend lyrics – james taylor

paris’ rooftops were lovely to see
switzerland’s vertical landscape
crossed my mind’s eye just now
canada’s sh*r*line has been calling out to me
but it’s been too long a time
since last i crossed
that vast nantucket sound

refrain
h*llo old friend
welcome me home again
well, i’ve been away
but that’s all over now
say i can stay for october, now
stay a while and play

little dog david
i must look like a fool
i should’ve remembered
you’d be forgetting my smell, well
give me a week or two to recapture my cool
i’ve got stories to tell
about how i sn*tched the devil’s catch
and out ran the hounds of h*ll

refrain
