GOOD LUCK OLD PAL ('TILL WE MEET BYE AND BYE)
Words and music by Gene Autry.
As recorded by Gene Autry, 1933. (Conqueror 8246)

YODEL

I just received a message, Jimmie, that you was gone (2x)
And my heart aches with sorrow as I sing this lonesome song. YODEL

But somehow or ‘nother I just can’t believe it’s so (2x)
That you’ve left me, old pal, and I’ll never see your happy smile no mo’. YODEL

Just the other day I told my dear old dad (2x)
That you were the best old buddy that I’ve ever had. YODEL

It was down in old Texas just a few days ago, it seems (2x)
When we harmonized together, "My Little Ol’ Home Down in New Orleans." YODEL

Now you’re singin’ to the angels up in that dark blue sky, (2x)
So I say: “Good luck, old pal, till we meet by and by.” YODEL.
