Booze predates the Blues by centuries, but somewhere along the line they formed an alliance that's yielded some of the greatest drinking songs of all time. Here are fourteen little stories that do some thinkin' about drinkin'.
'I don't care/What the people are thinkin'/I ain't drunk/I'm just drinkin..' 'when they gets drunk/Start fighting all night/Knocking down windows and tearin' out doors/Drinkin' half a gallon and callin' for more.'
'Yes I love that moonshine whiskey/Tell the world I do/Now this is the reason why I drink/I'm just trying to get along with you.'
'Now I'm just feeling just fine/I think I'll stop drinkin' whiskey/And go back to bad wine.' Yeah, booze & blues go together very well So raise a toast to the greatest thinking songs ever recorded about beer, whiskey, wine and white lightning.
Hep cats and kool kittens dig this mighty fine mess of stone cold classic rhythm and blues tunes. We're riding the caboose to Boozeville. Have no fear, drink some beer, drink some wine, it ain't no crime, drink some gin, it ain't no sin. All 'great shakes-no fakes' here, guaranteed to knock your socks off!
