My Dad used to sing this one all the time too. Another great song. I must've heard it about a thousand times. Off the top of my head...

Friends of Mine
Ian Tyson c. 1966

These friends of mine, we shared some good times together
Days of sunshine, days of rain
Many jobs and many towns we worked and never
Cared if we saw the same towns again

Then one day, we weren't as young as before
Our mistakes weren't quite so easy to undo
But by all those roads, my friend, we travel down
I'm a better man for just the knowin' of you

These friends of mine, they never cared about tomorrow
It was too early in the game
They'd stay a while until the day they'd get to wonderin'
If the far side of the hill looked the same

And they settle down somewhere along the way
And some went on, as some men do
But by all those roads, my friend, we travel down
I'm a better man for just the knowin' of you

(Ah, Rick...)

And they settle down somewhere along the way
Yes, and some went on, as some men do
But by all those roads, my friend, we travel down
I'm a better man for just the knowin' of you

And by all those roads, my friend, we traveled down
I'm a better man for just the knowin' of you
