Partners Brothers & Friends Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

The promoter says he wants to cancel
'Cause there ain't enough tickets sold
The air conditioner on the bus just broke
And I can't shake this cold

The single lost the bullet
The singer's losin' his wife
Well, I might be crazy but I wouldn't change
A single thing about this life

Sometimes we feel like champions
Sometimes we just can't win
Sometimes our records hit the top of the charts
Or the discount bargain bins

Through all those 20 years of touring
We've remained partners, brothers and friends
We're keep it together 'cause we're sure
We're gonna be big time, before it all ends

It's just as long as Johnny's got his fiddle
And Jimmy's got his drums along
Then Jeffrey and me, and Bobby will be
Singing all our favorite songs

We'll catch the fire from the folks in the front row
Fan the flames as the beat gets strong
It's great to be a part of something
So good that's lasted so long

Well, I saw a story in the paper
Suddenly the band's big news
The critics all like our records just fine
But they seem a bit confused

Is it folk, or rock, or country, woah
Seems like everybody cares but us
So just leave us an early wakeup call
So we don't miss the bus

And just as long as Johnny's got his fiddle
And Jimmy's got his drums along
Then Jeffrey and me, and Bobby will be
Singing all our favorite songs

We'll catch the fire from the folks in the front row
Fan the flames as the beat gets strong
It's great to be a part of something
So good that's lasted so long

The band says it can't stand
My latest song, it's too personal
But my first wife's second marriage blew up
They had to get the dang thing annulled

Well, if that ain't something to sing about
You tell me what is
And we'll give it a beat and put it on the street
And we'll just might have another hit

And just as long as Johnny's got his fiddle
And Jimmy's got his drums along
Then Jeffrey and me, and Bobby will be
Singing all our favorite songs

We'll catch the fire from the folks in the front row
Fan the flames as the beat gets strong
It's great to be a part of something
So good that's lasted so long
Yeah, it's great to be a part of something
So good that's lasted so long
