“All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down)” is a song written and recorded by American country music artist Hank Williams Jr.. It was released in September 1981 as the first single from the album The Pressure Is On. The song was Williams Jr.’s fifth number one on the country chart.

Hank Williams Jr – All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down) Lyrics

All my rowdy friends have settled down
And they seem to be more into 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 the “Lost Highway”
And old George Jones I’m glad to see he’s finally getting straight
And Waylon’s staying home and loving Jessi 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
Yeah me and my rowdy friends done rowdied on down
