He bought em' at a parking lot sale
Outside of Wichita on a Tuesday afternoon
He wore em' the night he met his first wife
But, that was a couple soles ago

He wore em' out on the town
He always had trouble if a woman ever came around
He was a lightning rod
With Fireball breath made of war memories

He had a tongue with words that could cut
He fought for his old ladies honor more than once
He fought with his old lady too
After he got back from Iraq he wasn't the same dude

I guess he had a proper send off
Standing outside the yard in nice black clothes
The friend I knew wouldn't a cared what we wore there
But, he would have loved the guy playing Taps on his trumpet

He's rattling down the road somewhere
Without his boots, they're sitting in my house
His old lady gave them to me
She said, "She couldn't live with them, cause she couldn't live without my friend"
