Lyrics & Notes retrieved from jamessteinle.com

 

NOTES ON SONG: This is one of my older tunes, wrote it my second year of college after reminiscing on nights where me and my buddies would be at my place drinking High Life and a handle of whatever whiskey was on sale (typically Southern Comfort), and just playing cards or listening to Townes/REK. It’s kind of a more thoughtful “bros before hoes” tune…just reminding you that your good friends are one of the most important things in life.

 

 

LYRICS: Good Friends

There’s a bar down the road, we used to go

We’d get a little, crazy and wild

But now I find myself in this old place

Except, I can’t hit rewind

 

Just last week I saw my buddies

All strutting down on the drag

They looked at me as if I was a ghost

Shoot, I fell way out of line

 

But this old glass is gonna, help me mend

Give me time to pretend

That dusty bottle has a sour taste

You can’t buy good friends

You can’t buy good friends

 

Pain will come, pleasure will go

Your heart will break, your wallet will grow

And down this road, you’ll always know

You got a place to rest those, heavy loads

 

But this old glass is gonna, help me mend

Give me time to pretend

That dusty bottle has a sour taste

You can’t buy good friends

You can’t buy good friends

 

I’m sitting here in my straw Stetson

I’m drinking them neat from some hand me down glass

But ain’t no one here, gonna share a good laugh

I knock ‘em back and rest my head on the past

 

Pain will come, pleasure will go

Your knees will tremble and your heart will slow

That steady breeze sure gonna carry us back

Back to that old pine table, knocking back Jack.

 

But this old glass is gonna, help me mend

Give me time to pretend

That dusty bottle has a sour taste

You can’t buy good friends

You can’t buy good friends
