He was a friend of mine
He was a friend of mine
His killing had no purpose
No reason or rhyme
He was a friend of mine

He was in Dallas town
He was in Dallas town
From a sixth-floor window
A gunner shot him down
He died in Dallas town

He never knew my name
He never knew my name
And though I never met him
I knew him just the same

He was a friend of mine
The leader of a nation
For such a precious time
He was a friend of mine
He was a friend of mine
He was a friend of mine
