I need a friend to share a drink with tonight
So I don't have to drink alone
I've got me a home and I love me a wife
But I need me a drinkin' friend.
I don't much care for worldly things
But my guitar and this beer in my hand
And they're better off shared with people who care
Like my old drinkin' friends.
Sometimes it's a blessing; sometimes it's a shame
How life gives and takes away
Sometimes you find yourself standing with a bottle in your hand
But you can't find your drinkin' friends.
When we all get to heaven like I pray we will
We might be singing and drinking on a hill
And I know we'll all be together, things will be better
My dear old drinkin' friends.
My brothers, my drinkin' friends.
