Waylon Jennings Best Friends of Mine Lyrics

sponsored links
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
