Country Songs about the Loss of a Friend

The loss of a close friend is brutal. As many of us know, friendships that last a lifetime are equal to family, and moving on in life without that support system can be as painful as losing a blood relative…sometimes more painful.

If you’re looking for country songs about the loss of a friend, the lyrics to these five gorgeous choice songs talk about this pain from various perspectives; a friend, a friend who is a lover, a friend who is family, a friend who passed too young, and the passing of a friend when the relationship wasn’t on the best of terms.

You’ll be able to listen to the songs below and get the Album on Amazon if you need it for a special celebration.

My Old Friend by Tim McGraw

This song has a quick beat with beautiful lyrics of a friend saying goodbye to his old friend. Although the music isn’t sad, somehow, the words still strike the chords of loss. It makes you think of an older couple or friends, one has passed on, and the other is ‘dusting off those memories, as the lyrics say.

I Miss My Friend by Darryl Worley

This song is about lovers, a couple, who were best friends. He sings about missing the physical closeness of love, but he misses his friend, the one he confided in, the one he poured his heart and soul out to. The song is sad, almost to the point where it hurts to hear the words. If you’ve lost the love of your life, your best friend, this song is an emotional piece to listen to. In fact, skip it if you’re feeling too emotional right now.

I Will Remember You by Sarah Mclachlan

This song would suit someone looking for lyrics about a friend who passed away with whom the relationship may not have ended on the best of terms. It could also work for those who were once a couple, again where the relationship was unfinished. The song’s mood is somber, with the words “I Will Remember You, Will You Remember Me” expressed almost as a peace offering.

Sissy’s Song, by Alan Jackson

This song is about a daughter, wife, and mother who passed away. Alan Jackson tells the story of a woman with all those who loved her taken. The lyrics are about not understanding how this could be and reassuring her that she’s letting her loved ones know, ‘don’t worry about me.’ It’s not as gloomy as most songs about death are; in fact, I would classify this tune as musically pretty.
