Well, my first friend went down when I was 17 years old

Well, there’s one thing I can say about that boy he was bold

Well, my second friend went down when I was 21 years of age
Well, my second friend went down when I was 21 years of age
Well, there’s one thing I can say about that boy he was brave

Well, now rules are alright if there’s someone left to play the game

All my friends are going and thing’s just don’t seem the same
Oh, thing’s just don’t seem the same, babe
