  • I guess Phoenix hard times and hard work helped shape the mold
    We pushed an old Chrystler a hell of a lot further than we rode
    I remember when our biggest dream
    Was breakin' the bank on some pinball machine
    Well ol' Jim hit the jackpot in Idaho Falls, Idaho
    After all of this time, he's still a best friend of mine, one of a kind

    In Missoula Montana out under that unending sky
    There in a valley it would make any southern boy smile
    With the stars and the bars and a breeze
    Hank and his lady are takin' it easy
    Deep in the west you might say colonial style
    After all of this time, he's still a best friend of mine, one of a kind

    He was a legend, I was a redneck and green
    The first to believe, he took me under his wing
    Now the edges are still pretty rough
    But when I'm loggin' that guitar and struttin' my stuff
    Old Buddy, old friend, you were the start of the dream
    And after all of this time, he's still a best friend of mine, one of a kind

    [BRIDGE:]
    All laughin' and jokin' aside
    I can honestly say and say it with pride
    Somewhere, sometime in this life of mine
    I must have done somethin' all right
    Somewhere, sometime in this life of mine
    I must have done somethin' all right
