Can my brother sit in? (X2)

Well there's a hole in the band and
As a favor to Cassie
We'll let her brother come and jam.
If he ain't no good,
We'll just leave him right out of the mix.
But he proceeded to give some tired mules a coupla kicks

Two weeks later,
And brothers in the band.
Two more weeks a live album in the can.
Expect we'll all be in his shadow one day.
That boys a writin' and playin' fool.
We're the guitar army again.
There ain't nothin that we can't do

(chorus)
Cassie's brother was an okie boy.
Played guitar just like a god
Write you a song and sing it too.
Music so fine it makes you feel brand new.

Two years later,
Street Survivors hit the shelves.
Beyond expectation, sounding better than ourselves.
Just wanna keep playing
As long as we possibly can

(repeat chorus)

For Steve
