Merle Haggard & Clint Eastwood – Bar Room Buddies Lyrics

Hey I want to sing till the feeling gets right
Well let’s harmonize we’ll be dynamite
I’ll yodel the high notes I’ve done it for years
Good deal old buddy and I’ll pour the beer
There’s always some lady alone at the bar
Yeah and you always let her know just who you are
I know a couple gals that we can call down
They’ll shake the pictures right all of the wall

We’re bar room buddies and that’s the best kind
Nobody fools with a buddy of mine
I’ll laugh when you’re happy and I’ll cry when you’re blue
We’re bar room buddies and we’re doing fine
So pour me another we got nothing but time
Old chug-a-lug-a-lugging bar room buddy of mine

The bartender trying to turn out the lights
Well maybe it is time we called it a night
Hell we’ll wake up the roosters if we drink them real slow
Well let’s have a double and a six-pack to go
We’re bar room buddies and that’s the best kind
Nobody fools with a buddy of mine
I’ll laugh when you’re happy and I’ll cry when you’re blue

We’re bar room buddies and we’re doing fine
So pour me another we got nothing but time
Old chug-a-lug-a-lugging bar room buddy of mine

Hell we’re skirt chasing, tail kicking guitar picking, pool hustling
Old chug-a-lug-a-lugging bar room buddy of mine
