Old Friends (for W@@dro)
I was kind of hesitate to put this in this Songbook Forum but then I think it's more suitable than at YouTube Forum because for one reason it's Farang song and the other reason is because I wanted to dedicate this one for friendship between I and W@@dro.

Someone may say "Big Deal!" and he's right!

I and W@@dro first met and became close friends more than 40 years ago, we became friends by choice not by chance. We've spent only few wonderful years together doing what we loved most and went seperate ways and after so many years of searching I just gave up thinking that I would never see him or hear from him again.

Now it seems like we are back together again (Thanks to Nimit in particular), enjoying what we still love most and also have a chance or two to give some precious experiences that nobody could buy it, we paid the price by years of our lifes, so I think they are priceless!!

I'm so glad he re-appeared in this Bluehouse to entertain quite a lot of our younger generations and me too.

I thought of him today and Impromtu!, this song came out from me to him, 40 years from now I wonder if there'll be any other two friends that will re-act what we're doing today? Big Grin

OLD FRIENDS (Simon & Garfunkel)
Old friends,
Old friends
Sat on their park bench
Like bookends.
A newspaper blown though the grass
Falls on the round toes
Of the high shoes
Of the old friends.

Old friends,
Winter companions,
The old men
Lost in their overcoats,
Waiting for the sunset.
The sounds of the city,
Sifting through trees,
Settle like dust
On the shoulders
Of the old friends.

Can you imagine us
Years from today,
Sharing a park bench quietly?
How terribly strange
To be seventy.
Old friends,
Memory brushes the same years
Silently sharing the same fears



Friendship is one of the most wonderful things that we human beings can experience in our life times.
[A friendship needs a little mulch of contacts every so often-just to save it from drying out completely.

I always have great pleasure being alone by myself to play, If you're playing for any other reason, it won't last.

RE: Old Friends (for W@@dro)
Napman,

I was so deeply touched by the fact you took the time to perform and dedicate this song to me and our friendship. I was so blown away I couldn't think of anything to say but have finally found the courage to thank you for our friendship over the years and many years to come. I'll treasure our friendship always. I love you..man.

Sincerely,
Woody Bangkok

Napman!
This one for you.
Didn't we nail it, my friend?

RE: Old Friends (for W@@dro)
And..remember this song?
Didn't we nail it, my friend?




In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find

In the year 3535
Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies
Everything you think, do, or say
Is in the pill you took today

In the year 4545
Ain't gonna need your teeth, won't need your eyes
You won't find a thing to do
Nobody's gonna look at you

In the year 5555
Your arms are hanging limp at your sides
Your legs not nothing to do
Some machine is doing that for you

In the year 6565
Ain't gonna need no husband, won't need no wife
You'll pick your son, pick your daughter too
From the bottom of a long black tube


In the year 7510
If God's a-comin' he ought to make it by then
Maybe he'll look around himself and say
Guess it's time for the Judgement day

In the year 8510
God's gonna shake his mighty head
He'll either say I'm pleased where man has been
Or tear it down and start again

In the year 9595
I'm kinda wondering if man's gonna be alive
He's taken everything this old earth can give
And he ain't put back nothing

Now it's been 10,000 years
Man has cried a billion tears
For what he never knew
Now man's reign is through
But through the eternal night
The twinkling of starlight
So very far away
Maybe it's only yesterday

In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find

RE: Old Friends (for W@@dro)
Wow, W@@dro,
What a great memory you got!

Yeah, we nailed them all I guess (one way or another!)

And you still remember "In the year 2525"? 5555 Big GrinBig Grin

Long live our Friendship and let's hope our younger friends here follow our ancient footsteps. I love you too..man (as always)
