When I got the news today
I didn't know what to say.
So I just hung up the phone.
I took a walk to clear my head,
this is where the walking lead
Can't believe you're really gone
Don't feel like going home

So I'm gonna sit right here
On the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer

Funny how the good ones go
Too soon, but the good lord knows
The reasons why it gets
Sometimes the greater plan is kinda hard to understand
Right now it don't make sense
I can't make it all make sense

So I'm gonna sit right here
on the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer

So long my friend, until we meet again
I'll remember you
And all the times we used to
Sit right here on the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer
Drink a beer, drink a beer.

    This song is about Luke Bryan's loss of his brother and sister. He is about the fact he will see them again in another place at another time, but in the meanwhile he is going to drink a beer and just relive the memories he had with them as a child. That is what I think this song is about, its all my opinion and I know he did not write this song but it was written for him and he said that he is emotionally attached to this song. He said that he feels for the song writer and knows what they're feeling. Also the fact he says he is at a pier and this is where the walking led makes me think that maybe it was a place him and his loved ones used to go to relax and have fun letting stress out of their lives. I know this feeling all to well when my mom died from glaucoma 2 years ago I just walked around and ended up at our most visited area and sat there and relived what we had talked about over the years. If you actually read this thanks for not giving up I love Wisconsin!

    I would like to no the truth behind this song, I lost my best friend in the hole world and I think of her everyday, we lost her in a tragic car accident in 2002, when I her this song I try to figure out what may have happened, I have to children that listen to this song and sing it word for word, they also ask what may have happened and they think about people that mean a lot to them while they listen to this song, love ur loved ones, life is very short, god bless Vermont and America.
