Didn’t mean no harm, just some port in a storm
Quick-shot footage of when they met flashes by
Backstage at night, shot in black & white
June in tow, guitar in hand, he just sang

Recognition of rising stars
John hands Bob and old guitar
“It’s an old-time tradition” he said
Bob just shook his head

Back seat in the car, got those sunglasses on
Got the windows rolled down through the town
Chasing June since May, summer’s wasting away
Country royalty sighed, she never asked why

He’s got stories by the score from 40 years or more of life on the road
So tell him what you want to hear, he’ll spin it in your ear
On a late night radio
