Tuesday marked the birthday of the late, great Stevie Ray Vaughan, who was born on that day in 1954. This lovely acoustic song is final track on the posthumous collection The Sky Is Crying and provides a fitting end to the album. Written by Vaughan’s friend Doyle Bramhall, it’s a moving portrayal of a friendship put on hold by departure, then reunited as time passes.

Hello there my old friend
Not so long ago it was till the end
We played outside in the pourin’ rain
On our way up the road we started over again

You’re livin’ out dreams of you on top
My mind is achin’ oh lord it won’t stop
that’s how it happened livin’ life by the drop

Up and down the road in our worn out shoes
Talkin’ ’bout good things and singin’ the blues
You went your way and I stayed behind
We both knew it was just a matter or time

You’re livin’ out dreams of you on top
My mind is achin’ oh lord it won’t stop
that’s how it happened life by the drop

No waste of time we’re allowed today
Churnin’ up the past, there’s no easier way
Times been between us,a means to a end
God its good to be here walkin’ together my friend

Livin’ our dreams
My mind stoped achin’
that’s how it happened livin’ life by the drop
