Johnny gave Joe his first cigarette
And Joe lit the filter and then he smoked the whole pack
And Joe bought all the gas in Johnny's old Ford
He always said that's what friends were for.

When Johnny married Tina, Joe married Dee
Two blonde-haired sisters from Covington, Kentucky
And in ‘67 Johnny joined the Corps
Joe did too, but he never knew what for.

And tonight in this barroom he's easin' his pain
