Lyrics

(spoken): A wonderful lady whom I admire very much, by the name of Moms Mabley, sung a song about a lot of great men But you know, somehow I still feel that there`s a lot of great men to be sung about I`ve got some friends, ladies & gentlemen, who have gone home before me & I hope you don`t mind if I take a little time now to tell you about them Anybody here seen my friend Nat King Cole? Can you tell me where Nat has gone? The last thing I heard him say, he was gonna look back over his life & before he could do it, he was gone Oh before he could do it, he was gone

& has anybody here seen my friend Sam Cooke Can anybody tell me where Sam has gone? The last thing he told me, that a change was gonna come But before he could see it, he was gone Oh before he could see it, he was gone I`ve got another friend by the name of Otis Redding Can anybody tell me where Otis has gone? Last time I saw him, he was sittin` down by the dock of the bay I looked around for Otis & he was gone I looked around & my friend Otis Redding was gone Hmmmm hmmmm oh I have to moan about it sometime, hmmmm & that makes me know I`ve got to leave here one day But I don`t worry about it, for you know why I`ve got friends, oh yes I have, waitin` on me You know what they`re gonna say when I get there? They will say, `Come on in, Pickett. Sit down & rest awhile I know you`re tired; I know you came from a mighty long ways I know you`ve had hard times, I know you had to give up life for long Come on in, don`t worry no more, we will stand by you, we will never let you down Come on in, come on in, sit down, sit down` ...& fade
