The Lost Trailers Favorite Friends Lyrics

We couldn't leave the woods 'til the bottle was done
Then we'd all go fishing in the dusk bitten sun
Not old enough to drive, but we knew if we could
We'd have all the women in our neighborhood
But we never thought that one of us would go away
No, we never dreamed that we might cry on teenage graves
The fairytale ends with the loss of our favorite friend
Well, the funeral was nice, or that's what you're supposed to say
We all sat together staring out into grey
It was hard to believe that out of five faithful friends
Four were left broken while one rode the wind
And the nights out on the town fell few and far between
Cause all we talked about was how great things used to be
Our innocence ends with the loss of our favorite friend
It seems like the best of us always fall to early grace
And the road will keep rolling on, but angels are hard to replace
I guess it was crazy luck, to have someone like that to lose
But he couldn't stay long, God must have missed him, too
Now Charlie is in college, and I hit the road
And Al is building churches in New Mexico
Steve is running from the law, but that's nothing new
We all say we'll meet back home but we never do
And the woods burned down long ago, the old neighborhood is gone
And I can't get drunk no more, cause I hate drinking alone
But I know in the end we'll get back to our favorite friends
Cause life is much better when it is shared with our favorite friends
