I was away in some distant country
When a friend phoned through the news
The line was bad and I couldn't hear
And the story was confused
They say you'd been out drinking
And having your usual wild time
You were driving home just a little too fast
You never made it home

Then I remembered the times we travelled around
How we'd drive on through the night
We were passing smokes and telling jokes
As the road stretched out in the light
We always shared our money
We were always broke it seemed
But fame was around the corner
And fortune, so we dreamed

When I'm drinking in some good-time bar
I look around for you
It's a habit I've got 'cause I can't forget
And I'm wishing it wasn't true
Maybe in a corner, behind a drink or two
You'd be singing songs, having a good time
Like we used to do
Let's both get drunk and have a good time
Like we used to do
Yeah, like we used to do
