The Brothers Osborne debuted a new song called “While You Still Can” on the Bobby Bones Show. During the emotional performance, they talked about their appearance at the recent Route 91 Harvest Festival.

The brother played the show on Friday. “It’s a crowd we’ll never forget,” John Osborne says. “Man, it’s hard.” Osborne takes a minute to wipe away tears and collect his thoughts, while Bones picks up the conversation.

“It’s hard for us in this community, because those are our people,” Bones says. “Those are the people that take their money and choose to take it and use it to escape in music.”

“Every person that’s ever come out to a show of ours, they feel like family,” John says. “We owe them everything.”

TJ then introduces the song, saying it will be on the new record but it’s not a promotion for a new record. But that it felt appropriate for the time. They wrote the song with Travis Meadows.

“While You Still Can” Lyrics

Making ends with that old friend

You swore you’d never talk to again cause you miss him

Called up your momma on the telephone

Talk a whole lot of nothing til the cows come home, cause you miss her

Cross every T and most the I’s

Cause years grow wings and fly on by

Time slips through your fingers just like sand

Cause everything you thought would last forver

Never lasts forever like you planned

Don’t let your now become a never

So take life by the hands

While you still can

Get your dad to tell that same old joke and laugh between the Jack and Coke

and hope one day you’ll be half as funny

count your blessings, thank the stars

cause in the end who you is about the love you give

It sure as hell ain’t about the money

Cause everything you thought would last forever

Never lasts forever like you planned

Don’t let your now become a never

So take life by the hands

While you still can

Just imagine what will happen

If you lived ever moment like the last

Cause everything you thought would last forever

Never lasts forever like you planned

Don’t let your now become a never

So take life by the hands

While you still can
