Old Crony Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABABCDED FGFGHIJI KLMLNONO MPMPQAQA

I had a friend a breezy friendA
I liked an awful lotB
And in his company no endA
Of happiness I gotB
We clicked in temper taste and moodC
We gypsied side by sideD
And then as no pal ever shouldE
He upped and diedD
-
A score of years have since gone byF
Yet I bemoan him stillG
He used to call me Bob and IF
Was wont to call him BillG
Oh how I wish that he were hereH
How we would bravely walkI
On heather hills to tavern cheerJ
And talk and talkI
-
If as he always used to doK
He'd just drop in to teaL
To rest awhile and jest awhileM
How chirpy I would beL
Then he would puff his pipe of briarN
And I my cigaretteO
And we would yarn beside the fireN
And time forgetO
-
Old Pal come back a little whileM
If just to let me sayP
How much I miss your jolly smileM
Now you have gone awayP
Ah when in life's allotted spanQ
We near our journey's endA
What greater treasure is there thanQ
A Golden FriendA
