smoke 'em if you got 'em, drink your glasses to the bottom
and toast me on another year
another year of hope, another year of holding on
for you drinkers by day who are bastards by dawn

I hope i will see you soon
I'll be home come hell or high water and I hope I will see you soon

gather around friends and neighbors who make your living by labor
share with me this little time
this little time that we have left, to have a drink and catch our breath
it might just be what saves our lives

smoke 'em if you got 'em, drink your glasses to the bottom
listen to the howling dogs
oh how it pleases me to be in such company
I'm so glad our paths have crossed
