This old man and me, were at the bar and we Were having us some beers and swaping 'I don't cares' Talking politics, blond and red-head chicks Old dogs and new tricks and habits we ain't kicked
We talked about God's grace and all the hell we raised Then I heard the ol' man say; "God is great, beer is good and people are crazy"
He said "I fought two wars, Been married and divorced" What brings you to Ohio? He said "Damned if I know" We talked an hour or two about every girl we knew What all we put 'em through Like two old boys will do
We pondered life and death He light a cigarette He said "These damn things will kill me yet; But God is great, beer is good and people are crazy"
Last call its two a.m., I said goodbye to him I never talked to him again Then one sunny day, I saw the old man's face Front page obituary, he was a millionaire He left his fortune to some guy he barely knew, his kids were mad as hell But me, I'm doing well And I drop by today, to just say thanks and pray, And I left a six-pack right there on his grave and I said; 'God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy"
