All My Rowdy Friends
Recorded and written by: Hank Williams jr.

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 no one 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 hang overs hurt more then they used to
and corn bread 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 his lost highway
and Johnny Cash don't act like he did back in '68
And Kriss 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 have rowdied on down.
