"When You Got Good Friends" as written by Allen Collins and Ronnie Van Zant....
You got to love ol' Charlie Daniels
You got to cut the rug with Wet Willie too
And you got to be a fan of the Marshall Tucker Band
Before I'll sit down and have a drink with you
Yes, Bakersfield has got ol' Merle Haggard
He's a bad, bad boy, yes indeed
Nashville's got a million and one guitar pickers
But I guess my favorite would be the CDB

[Chorus]
Yes there's a few good rockers in New York City
Guess the big la, it never cared for me
So won't you tell all them Hollywierd writer people
That it just don't make a damn
When you got good friends like me

Never dick on good ol' Waylon Jennings
Or Willie Nelson, Bob Wills or me
Well they're playin' that good ol' country-western
You know this thing they call the Texas swing

[Chorus]
