Mi Amigo
words and music by Joel Rafael

Today I was thinking about how much
I love my brother Mark
He used to live with us up north
Helped us get it together
When we didn't even know
How to start a fire to keep us warm

Saw him last Thanksgiving
He decided to come down
Just to spend a little bit of time with us
Stayed about a week or so
Then he had to move on
We took him into town and we put him on a bus

Adios my brother
It's sad to see you go
Adios mi amigo
Hope to find you down the road
Again sometime
You are a friend of mine

Yesterday was good to me
The future hides my eyes
Sometimes I wish that things were like they used to be
Lots of dry wood to burn
The dog lying by the stove
In a style of life that would still be good for me

Mark and me we were up at dawn
We were cutting wood by hand
We didn't have a fancy chainsaw
Only the sweetest water
And the cleanest air to breath
In a place where nature is the law

Adios my brother
It's sad to see you go
Adios mi amigo
Hope to find you down the road
Again sometime
You are a friend of mine

Mi Amigo
