All my rowdy friends have settled down
And it seems to be more in the laid back songs
Nobody wants to get drunk and get loud
Everybody just wants to go back home

I myself have seen my wilder days
And I have seen my name at the top of the page
But I need to find a friend just to run around
But nobody wants to get high on the town
And all my rowdy friends have settled down

And I think I know what my father meant
When he sang about a Lost Highway
And old George Jones I'm glad to see he's finally getting straight

And Waylon staying home and loving Jesse more these days
And nobody wants to get drunk and get loud
And all my rowdy friends have settled down

And the hangovers hurt more than they used to
And cornbread and ice tea took the place Of pills and ninety proof
And it seems like none of us do things quite like we used to do
And nobody wants to get high on the town
And all my rowdy friends have settled down

Yeah I think I know what my father meant
When he sang about the "Lost Highway"
And Johnny Cash don't act like he did back in '68
And Kris he is a movie star and he's moved off to L.A.
And nobody wants to get drunk and get loud
And all my rowdy friends have settled down

Yeah me and my rowdy friends done rowdied on down

    General CommentI have finished college and I am getting older, and I have been doing a lot of thinking about becoming an adult. I can relate to this song as my friends and I are getting older, the times we share together are going to change.

    General CommentThis song strikes a chord, with anybody that is setteling down. Hank Jr has taught us with many of his other songs that he hasn't.

    References:
    father & lost highway = Hank Sr and his classic Lost Highway explaining the dangers of a fast lifestyle
    George Jones = well known drinking problem (lawn mower incident)
    Waylon & Jesse = Waylon Jennings & his wife Jesse Coulter
    Johnny Cash in 68 kicked his drug habit
    Kris = Kris Kristofferson, who started out as a county singer before moving to LA to act in the movies.
