Riff: Tim McGraw – “Friend Of A Friend”

Feb 4, 2013

I don’t spend all my days and all my nights/Just missin’ you

from Friend Of A Friend lyrics by Tim McGraw

Wrong-footing listeners, this wistful The Eagles-esque number’s string of whispers on the street initially suggests McGraw is pining for an ex before he insists that despite gossip to the contrary, he’s barely given her a moment’s thought since their split & that it’s she who still holds a torch.
