Hey, I want to sing till the feeling gets right 
Well, let's harmonize, we'll be dynamite 
I'll yodel the high notes, I've done it for years 
Good deal old buddy and I'll pour the beer

There's always some lady alone at the bar
Yeah and you always let her know just who you are
I know a couple gals that we can call down
They'll shake the pictures right all of the wall

We're bar room buddies and that's the best kind
 Nobody fools with a buddy of mine
I'll laugh when you're happy and I'll cry when you're blue
We're bar room buddies and we're doing fine

So pour me another, we got nothing but time
Old chug-a-lug-a-lugging bar room buddy of mine
The bartender trying to turn out the lights 
Well, maybe it is time we called it a night 

Hell, we'll wake up the roosters if we drink them real slow
Well, let's have a double and a six pack to go

We're bar room buddies and that's the best kind
 Nobody fools with a buddy of mine
I'll laugh when you're happy and I'll cry when you're blue
We're bar room buddies and we're doing fine

So pour me another we got nothing but time
Old chug-a-lug-a-lugging bar room buddy of mine
Hell we're skirt chasing, tail kicking guitar picking, pool hustling 
Old chug-a-lug-a-lugging bar room buddy of mine
