  • You're drivin' back home down 246
    You almost hit a deer and you end up in a ditch
    You can't pull forward and you can't back out
    You're sittin' there thinkin' whatcha gonna do now
    You'd be a little nervous if a cop showed up
    'Cause you drank a little maybe just a little too much
    Waitin' on a tow truck takes too long
    It's two in the mornin'... who you gonna call

    Friends damn good friends
    Seven minutes later they're pullin' you out
    You know the ones I'm talkin' about
    Friends... damn good friends
    You can count 'em all on one of your hands
    You got a hundred buddies
    A couple of damn good friends

    So you're all shootin' pool on a Saturday night
    This little brunette keeps givin' you the eye
    So you buy her a drink, before too long
    You're out on the floor in the middle of a song
    About that time her ex shows up
    He's starin' you down gettin' all bowed up
    He's a big ol' jacked up S.O.B
    That's alright he's about to meet your

    Friends damn good friends
    A few seconds later he's startin' to see
    It ain't one on one it's one on three
    Friends damn good friends
    They do it for you 'cause you'd do it for them
    You got a hundred buddies
    But a couple of damn good friends

    They're there even when you don't see 'em as much
    'Cause you moved away or you fell in love
    But they're wearin' a tux when you're sayin' your vows
    And if you crash and burn you can crash on their couch

    Friends damn good friends
    They love you like a brother there ain't no doubt
    You know the ones I'm talkin' about
    Friends damn good friends
    You can count 'em all on one of your hands
    You got a hundred buddies
    And a couple of damn good friends
    Oh, damn good friends Writer/s: BRENT ANDERSON, CHRIS DUBOIS, NEIL MEDLEY
