Heroes And Friends

(Randy Travis/Don Schlitz)

I ain't live forever but I've lived e-nough
I grew up with cowboys I watched on T-V

And I've learned to be gentle and I've learned to be tough
My friends and I sometimes pretended to be

I've found only two things that last to the end
Years have gone by but now and again

One is your heroes the other your friends
My heart rides the range with my heroes and friends

Your heroes will help you find good in yourself
Your friends won't forsake you for somebody else
They'll both stand beside you thru thick and thru thin
And that's how it goes with heroes and friends
