"Partners, Brothers and Friends" as written by and Jimmy Ibbotson Jeff Hanna....
The promoter says he wants to cancel
Cause there ain't enough tickets sold
The air conditioner on the bus just broke
And I cant shake this cold

The single lost the bullet,
The singers losin' his wife
Well I might be crazy but I wouldn't change
A single thing about this life.

Sometimes we feel like champions,
Sometimes we just cant win,
Sometimes our records hit the top of the charts
Or the discount bargain bins.

Through 30 years of touring
We've remained partners, brothers, and friends
We keep it together cause we love it and were sure
Well be big time before it all ends.

Well you know you've got the nitty gritty
And jimmy's got his drums along
Then Jeffrey and me and bobby will be
Singing all our favorite songs

Catch the fire from the folks in the front row
Fan the flames as the beat gets strong
Its great to be a part of something
So good that's lasted so long

Well I saw a story in the paper
Suddenly the bands big news
The critics all like our records just fine
But they seem a bit confused

Is it folk or rock or country
Seems like everybody cares but us
So just leave us an early wake up call
So we don't miss the bus


The band says it cant stand my latest song, its too personal
But my first wife's second marriage blew up
She had to get the dang thing annulled
Well if that ain't something to sing about
Well you tell me what is
And well give it a beat and put it on the street
And we just might have another hit
