GOOD GUYS (SHOULDN’T BE THE ONES TO GO)
Andres Jimenez / Darden Smith

I lost a good friend that day when the towers came down
And I still hear his voice when I'm out walking around
Saying money comes back but friends never do
Once they're gone they're gone and his words still ring true

I tell you this story so you know
The good guys like that shouldn't be the ones to go

It didn't matter your race your color your creed
He was always there in your time of need
He was smart as a whip and could really put a bat on the ball
In that final moment he gave his wife a call

I tell you this story so you know
A good guy like that shouldn't be the one to go
Shout it from mountaintops so everybody will know
The good guys like that shouldn't be the ones to go
The good guys like that shouldn't be the ones to go

So thank you brother for being my friend
And showing me what it means
To keep believing and never quit
And always have a dream
That dreams just might come true
Brother I still dream about you
I still dream about you

I tell you this story so you know
The good guys like that shouldn't be the ones to go
Shout it from mountaintops so everybody will know
The good guys like that shouldn't be the ones to go
The good guys like that shouldn't be the ones to go
