Found a dirt road beneath my feet

Must have wandered off the main street

When I was looking up instead of looking down

I was enjoying the city sights

Wanted to compare them with the northern lights

I guess that's how I wound up way outside of town

Now I'm wondering if I should go back

Or search around for an unbeaten track

I wish that you were here to show me how

Oh my friend, oh my friend

I'm wondering what you would do now

'Cause I wasted my good looks

Oh television and beer

And cynical heroes with nothing to say

Now I'm living in my second stage

Between my youth and my middle age

Hope when it's over I don't feel the same way

Just because you've left the bad behind

Doesn't guarantee what you'll find

So I'm thinking of you to make me strong

Oh my friend, oh my friend

Am I going where I belong

150 rum by the double shot

Warmed up in an aluminum pot

I'm trading my tomorrows for today

Life's a gamble when you don't toe the line

I want to let it ride every time

Winning or losing, learning something along the way

If this song sounds like a fan letter

It's 'cause you just keep getting better

I want to thank you for your high and lonesome sound

Oh my friend, oh my friend

Thank God there's still good friends around
