Same old jukebox playing at the Colorado County Line,
I've been here a time or two.
When I hear John-boy singing I miss old friends of mine,
They don't make 'em like they used to do.

And now I'm playing for some boys up in Oklahoma,
Cos they know every song I sing.
Smoke 'em if you got 'em it's a long way from the bottom,
Shame on me for never learning anything.

When we made our first record we didn't spend a dime,
Still the best one we've ever done.
Here's to second chances got to get it right this time,
Hop back on that horse and let her run.

And tonight we're riding up to Amarillo,
For a one-night stand at the Golden Light Cafe.
Smoke 'em if you got 'em it's a long way from the bottom,
Shame on me for never learning anything.

Last night we played to no one, there's nobody in this town,
Guess all my old friends have moved away.
So I'm heading home to get my feet back on the ground,
And live to fight another day.

I can't wait to get back home and see my baby,
And plant a garden in the spring.
Smoke 'em if you got 'em it's a long way from the bottom,
Shame on me for never learning anything.

Smoke 'em if you got 'em it's a long way from the bottom,
And shame on me for never learning anything.
