I saw you walk in here
With that guitar in your hand
I thought I might ask you
What you might be playing
Just one more question
Well, I know you gotta go
Me and my friends are drinking
And we was wondering if you know

Any Lynyrd Skynyrd
Or American Pie
Willie and Waylon
Or Magic Carpet Ride
How about Marshall Tucker
Or David Allen Coe
Play something we can sing to
Play something we know

Well, I know how it is, dude
I used to have me a band
'Til our drummer Ronnie
Got on down at the plant
The singer got a girlfriend
You know how that goes
So play something we can sing to
Play something we know

Do you know any Buffett
Or any Pink Floyd
How about some Dead, dude
Or how about the Doors
Do you know any Beatles
Or any Rolling Stones
Play something we can sing to
Play something we know

Man, if you want me to
I'll sing a song with you
I used to sing the high parts
My brother Donnie is sitting at the bar
And he plays a mean guitar

What are you looking at, man?
You don't want me play?
Well, you're about to get your ass whipped
If you keep looking at me that way
Man, I don't really mean it
There's no need to call security
I was only hoping
That you'd sing a song for me

Do you know Hank Jr.
Or any Steve Earle
How about the Joker
Or Brown-Eyed Girl
Sweet Home Alabama
Or Curtis Lowe
Play something we can sing to
Play something we know
