"Mi Amigo" as written by and Matthew Followill Nathan Followill....
I got a friend,
Shows me all the good times,
Tells me I look better,
Chews me up and spits me out,
And then walks my ass home.
And sings a song,
When I'm gone, gone, gone.

A little friend,
Shoots me up and downtown,
When I can't get me drunk enough,
To bring me out the pieces,
Of a place I call home.
To sing a song,
'Til I'm gone, gone, gone.

Gone
Gone
Gone

I've got a friend,
Help me to get up again,
Showers me in bruises,
Tells me I got a big old dick,
And she wants my asshole.
To sing a song,
'Til I'm gone, gone, gone
You know son!

Gone
Gone
Gone
Gone
Gone
Gone.

    General CommentYes, this song is clearly about liquor and I'm pretty sure it's this little lady named Tequila (hence the Spanish title). Lines such as, "Tells me I look better" and "Tells me I got a big ol' dick" reinforce the confidence that liquid courage can give us all. Also, when Caleb says, "To pick me out the piece of a place I call home," I think he is saying that he can use alcohol as a way to help with being home sick. But as we all know, alcohol comes with it's negatives, too. "Chews me up and spits me out" can be looked at as the terrible hangover experiences the morning after. "Showers me in bruises...." Well I know I've awakened the next day to find soreness and bruises from falls, maybe even fights that I can't remember because of how GONE I was the night before.

    General CommentGonna chalk this one up to the booze. Clearly Caleb loves his liqour medication and this song is about alcohol and its effects and happieness. watching interveiws with caleb alcohol is always around and on teh tongue, and in no way am i hating on that! i jsut have a friend taht drinks too much and this song is along those lines---the friend is the drink

    General CommentOn first listen i was convinced it was 'tells me i've got a big old dick, and she wants my asshole.' CALEB! The correct lyrics are lovely though.

    General CommentLove this song. Probably my favorite on Come Around Sundown. Reminds me of all the countless great times of going out with friends and getting absolutely trashed and then making sure we all got each other home and settled. I believe the lyrics in the last verse are a bit off though. Instead of "bruises" I think its "boozes", instead of "dick" I think he says "beer", and then i believe its "and she walks my ass home."

    General Commenti wish i could get a booklet of the correct lyrics, too bad i get all of my music online now. it was handy having the word in the cd case. i really like this song. i think my favoritehas to be pickup truck so far though.

    My Interpretationi agree with joco10 i never thought about it that way only saw the obvious meaning but its true his friend could be his booze. think this could be my favourite of CAS. actually it is my favourite of CAS for now.

    General CommentMy fave. from Come Around Sundown.
    Defiantly think it's about alcohol.
    I like the idea that it's tequila:
    "When I can't get me drunk enough"
    If you try get drunk, and can't get drunk enough, tequila will do it for you.

    =)
