Gather round men the ones I grew up with
My old friends that I used to raise hell with
I’ve got a woman on my mind
You all had your turn to cry
And I was always standin’ by
Friends friends of mine
Stand by me cause it’s my time

It’s my time it’s my time it’s my time
It’s my time to cry oh oh oh
It’s my time to cry ah ah ah
It’s my time to cry oh yeah
It’s my time

Gather round girls the ones I played house with
Come close girls I first kissed on the mouth with
I need your tender words so kind
You all had your misty eyes
And I helped you wiped them dry
Friends friends of mine
Stand by me cause it’s my time

It’s my time it’s my time it’s my time…
It’s my time it’s my time it’s my time…
